Time to wrap up the What-to-Wear Wedding series with the most formal wedding attire request– the black tie wedding.
Black tie is really the only wedding where you shouldn’t wear a short(er) dress. What’s appropriate at a cocktail wedding isn’t so appropriate here. Black tie weddings are most likely evening events, so evening gowns are typically perfect. Think elegant, glamorous.
A few options:
1. JS Boutique ($158)
2. Aidon Mattox ($195)
3. JS Boutique ($106)
4. Maggy London ($168)
The back of the navy JS Boutique (1) dress is stunning; very modern Grecian. A dress that highlights the back is an elegant way to show off some skin (but no coin slots, please). Aidon Mattox’s silk chiffon dress (2) is really easy and fun– the print does most of the work for you, and the cut is very flattering.
The neckline on the black JS Boutique (3) is beautiful; I love how it gives the look of a statement necklace (i.e., no extra jewelry required). Am digging the bodice detail on the Maggy London (4), and the bright fuchsia color is perfect.
What do you guys think? How many invites have you gotten to wedding requesting black tie attire?
