BLACK TIE DRESSES 

Black Tie Dresses are the ultimate when it comes to ladies formal wear! Black Tie events call for the most formal of attire to be worn by ladies and gentlemen alike. For the gents, tuxedos are appropriate and for the ladies, formal Black Tie Dresses. Black Tie affairs are only surpassed by White Tie events where typically ball gowns are worn or at the minimum an a-line gown with full skirt and sweep train. Depending on the formality of the event you are attending, Black Tie Dresses are also worn with gloves from mid arm length to full elbow coverage.

BLACK TIE IS BEST SERVED ON THE OTHER SIDE OF SIMPLE

Typically, Black Tie Dresses are the most embellished of all, decorated with beading accents, crystal beading patterns and sequins. No such thing as too much bling!  Alternatives to bling would be Black Tie Dresses that are architecturally very interesting with a fancy back treatment, high sophisticated collar, halter style with a dramatic plunging neckline or showcasing a true “wow” feature. Classic fabrics like structured taffeta or heavy satin are the first choice fabrics for classic styles that have structure to the silhouette of the gown. Black Tie Dresses are defined in the most simple terms as the dressiest of formal dresses.

Hemlines for Black Tie dresses are always floor length with a sweep train, or even just a break train that breaks your hemline in the back of your dress resting on the floor is completely appropriate. In certain social circles where dress code is more traditional, it is not appropriate to show your shoes under your hemline. Your hemline should be ½ inch to an inch from the floor - no peek-a-boo shoes is the rule of thumb when wearing Black Tie Dresses.

BLACK TIE DRESSES CALL FOR STATEMENT ACCESSORIES

Attending the most formal of affairs gives you total liberty to pair your Black Tie Dress with statement, oversized or specialty jewelry, a fabulous clutch or dainty jeweled purse. Don’t hold back on making a jewelry selection that draws attention to your face. Hair pieces are also another option to add detailing to your hair style and complete your look. And add an incredible pair of shoes! While your shoes are not supposed to show under your hemline, they can still be seen as you step out of the limo or even while sitting at formal affairs. When weather requires a wrap, choose something as formal as your Black Tie Dress, perhaps a sleek raincoat in classic black or satin, or a cashmere shawl, or faux fur wrap .If your special occasion is meant to be a “see and be seen” event, trust us, you will get the fanfare you deserve when you wear the appropriate Black Tie Dress and all the right accessories!

Black Tie Dresses are a dream to accessorize because almost anything goes! You can’t really go over the top. We love the look of big ball and gala dresses in structured fabrics with huge oversized necklaces or going bare around the neck and wowing the crowd with an outrageous pair of chandelier earrings! Cuff bracelets over gloves are a memorable fashion piece, as well as layered long necklaces. We suggest selecting your Black Tie Dress first and then experimenting with your jewelry and accessories until you come up with the perfect complimentary pieces to complete your look.
