What is a Black-Tie Event?
Black Tie or a Black-Tie event is a dress code that is formal and mostly used for evening occasions and weddings.
Traditionally, during black-tie events men are required to wear tuxedos and women wear floor-length gowns.
- A man’s suit should always be very dark at a black-tie event to accentuate the formality of the black tuxedo.
- For women, the dress code typically calls for a floor-length dress or gown.
- Cocktail dresses may also be worn but more often floor-length dresses are more acceptable.
