Montique Clothing: Outfit ideas for black tie events

Black Tie Gowns

When deciding what to wear to a black-tie event, remember that full-length gowns will make you look stylish, elegant, and mature. This formal black-tie event is not the time to wear cheap designs or pull off the latest trend. Stick to sophisticated, timeless gowns in dark shades.

Black Tie Cocktail Dress

Don’t have a gown or don’t want to buy one for a one-time occasion? A sophisticated cocktail dress will do. Select one that is elegant and that sits at the knees. Choose rich colours, such as black, chic metallics, or nude, to elevate your look, and pair it with fancy accessories and heels.

Black Tie Wedding Attire

While a black-tie wedding event requires you to dress up, you don’t need to take it as seriously as a red-carpet event. A full-length dress or a fancy cocktail dress will be just fine. Avoid black and white dresses and stick to colours such as navy, champagne or prints.

Black Tie Gala Attire

If you are struggling with what to wear to a gala black-tie event as a woman, don’t panic. Although this is a good time to go full out, an elegant full-length gown or classic silhouette will allow you to fit right in. Black is a staple for gala attire, but don’t be afraid to wear colours like white or red. Enhance your look with bold jewellery and accessories.

No matter what your personal style is, you can find a black-tie dress that compliments your personality and appearance. Looking to purchase a dress for your next black-tie event? Check out our selection of black tie dresses at Montique Clothing today!
