Whether your invitation comes via e-mail, courier or delivered in person, you already know that it’s time to go outfit shopping the moment you receive a wedding invite. But wait a minute! You need to go through that invitation properly. You see, wearing anything wouldn’t cut it for most weddings especially those with a formal theme and a ‘black tie’ dress code.
Weddings are a special time for all of us but mostly for the celebrants who have spent months fine-tuning every minute detail to make sure that their dream day becomes a ‘perfect’ reality and the best thing you can do as a guest is to follow the dress code instructions to a T. Now, if you are wondering what a black tie dress code means, it basically translates to ‘fancy’ or dinner wear. For women, attending a black tie event means perfectly sewn floor length dresses, jewel tones, chic metallics, black, silver, gold and more ultra fancy, classy and posh options. The silhouette for a black tie event is dressy and while some solid colors are favoured, you can still go with lighter shades and chic separates. Basically, you should choose dresses that would hold well alongside your man (or any man at all) in a tuxedo.
Here are some of the chicest dress ideas for a black tie themed wedding as modelled by top style bloggers…
