There’s no shame in it, we’ve all been there. Trying to figure out whether ‘black tie optional’ really means your tuxedo jacket is an option, or if a white tie invitation requires you to dress in light colours from top to toe. So with the party season in full swing, we’ve decoded the dress codes for you. From formal invites to appropriate office attire, we’ve got you covered.
White Tie Certainly the most formal of all dress codes, you’d be justified in having a little freak out when trying to adhere to these strict guidelines. In this case, women tend to have it easier, with floor length evening gowns being the appropriate form of dress. To really play up to the occasion, add a pair of long gloves. For men, a black dress coat (with tails) and matching trousers is the norm, paired with a white piqu wing collared shirt with a stiff front, white vest, white bow tie, white gloves, cufflinks, black patent shoes and black dress socks. Oh, and you can ditch the stiff front shirt in favour of a pleated front or formal white shirt. Tuxedo jackets and matching trousers are your suiting of choice fellas, with a black bow tie and cumberbund to match, optional braces to really get a good fit, cufflinks, black patent shoes and dress socks once again. Ladies, you can keep that formal evening gown if you like, or mix it up with an elegant cocktail dress or your most expensive looking Little Black Dress.
