How to Dress to Impress for a Gala Dinner?

Yesterday, during a fashion chat with my friend, we have talking about Gala Dinner and the perfect dress to wear. It’s not simple, dressing appropriately can help boost your status and define your character. However, it is a great excuse to buy a new dress with all the accessories!

All ladies and gentlemen should wear their absolute best attire since there’s quite a strict etiquette associated with these types of events. When dressing for a black-tie event, women can choose from a variety of styles and fabrics.

First rule: choose a dress made with glamorous fabric. Silk, taffeta, velvet, and chiffon are good choices.

Second rule: plan ahead to make sure you have everything you need well beforehand to avoid any last minute fashion disasters.

Black tie is a dress code for evening events and social functions derived from British and American costume conventions of the 19th century. It refers to a formal evening dress code that typically requires men to be dressed in tuxedo and women in evening gown. A White Tie or Ultra-formal invitation requires men wear full dress, with white tie, vest, shirt, and women wear long gowns. According to Debrett’s social protocol book, New Guide to Etiquette and Social Manners, “Long is the preferred comfortable option of older women, while young girls invariably feel more suited to short. However, a long dress or skirt remains the safest option for all, as it is always special, and appropriate to any black tie event grander than a cocktail party.”

I want to share with you my wishlist of the perfect gala dinner dress.

1) For the most formal dinner parties like a formal black tie event you can wear a long evening gown like this elegant Long Black Dress (UK020930).

      Si, è molto bello. Io indosserei il bianco, giusto per cambiare e non vestire sempre di nero 😉

      È stato difficile scegliere tra i tantissimi vestiti che il sito offre. Il mio preferito resta comunque il bianco.
