Dress codes can be very stressful, especially when said dress code is black tie. Dinner party, galas, awards, and ball are normally a black-tie event, which can bring dread to some, as whist the code is rather straightforward for men, it can be somewhat ambiguous for women. Luckily, we have made a list of some of our favourite dresses for black-tie events.

A tea- or floor-length gown is always the way to go for upscale events. It is favoured to wear darker colours as it looks classical and refined, however in recent years golds and reds have become popular. Sleeves can also be a bit of a debit, as some feel long to be more sophisticated, where there’s feel other feel that strap or cap sleeve dresses are more suited to a black-tie event. The only things that everyone can agree on is that for a black-tie event, the dress must be full length. Because of all these factors, we hope that this list helps you become the belle of the ball for a night in a gorgeous modern dress with a timeless feel.
