What dress to wear at a black tie event?

If you have an invitation for an event with a dress code black tie, the ladies are expected to appear in a long dress. A short evening dress or a nice cocktail dress may be allowed in a few occasions. When the black-tie event also includes dinner, then you are obliged to arrive in a long evening dress. Choose chic dress in smooth or calm colours. Avoid bright coloured dress or summery prints gowns.
Wearing half-length gloves is allowed, but the arms may also be uncovered. However, watches are forbidden, allowed are other festive jewellery and evening bags. The best choice for shoes is those with a (half) high heel
The gentlemen come in a tuxedo, this is a two or three-piece suit. The gentleman wears black trousers with a black jacket and a muscular white shirt where the buttons are not visible, finished with a bow tie.

What jewellery to wear to a black tie event?

The refinement for the ladies is in the details, paying attention to the hair and the make-up. For your shoes, evening bags en jewellery matching items are required, they do not have the same colour as the evening dress. Do not be too exorbitant with accessories, because with black tie the rule is "less is more".
