A few of the formal parties specify dress code in the invitation cards. There are two kinds of dress code-black tie and white tie.

Black Tie: If your invitation card says black tie, then it indicates a semi-formal occasion. Here you can dress your self in a cocktail dress or an evening gown. Since a black tie is a semi-formal occasion, you can choose the length and style of your gown as per the current trends. Strapless formal dresses are currently in vogue. Strapless dress highlights your face and the shoulders. Wear high heel stilettos with your evening gown. In case of a cocktail dress, do not wear a short length dress at the party. If you are taking your toddler for the party, select a dress from various infant formal dresses available. While selecting an infant formal dress, you need to keep the climate in mind. The fabric and the design of the dress should be comfortable for your little one. Do not buy an oversized dress for your baby.

White Tie: White tie invitations are for formal occasions such as formal dinners, ballroom party, opera etc. If you are invited to a party with ‘white tie’ dress code, you need to select a dress from elegant formal dresses. Remember, for white tie parties, it is mandatory to wear a full-length dress. Moreover, you need to choose from modest formal dresses. An even strapless dress may not be acceptable at certain events. Ball gowns are generally white in color. Therefore, if you are attending a formal party, choose your dress carefully.

Accessories to Wear with Formal Dresses:

Shoes: Buy shoes that match with your dress. If you are attending a ball dance party, then wear heels that you feel comfortable while dancing.

Jewelry: Avoid chunky jewelry. The jewelry should match the gown. A string of pearls for a white gown or a small ruby or emerald set of red and green dress respectively will make you look elegant.
