Black Tie Wedding Guest Outfits For Women
For ladies, a floor-length evening gown would the most appropriate choice to suit a black tie event. A mid-length dress can also be suitable if the style is formal and sophisticated, but you’d definitely want to steer clear of a mini dress or separates for a black tie occasion. Dark, rich colors like black, navy, emerald and red are often best suited for this dress code as opposed to lighter tones, though the latter are fine, too, especially for some kinds of spring or summer weddings.
Heels, jewelry and formal hair and makeup styling are also recommended for a black tie wedding. When in doubt, opt to dress up rather than down – it’s best to be overdressed than underdressed within this kind of setting. Get inspired by the ideas we’ve prepared for you!
