When to Wear an Evening Dress
If the invitation of your event names the dress code as black tie or formal wear, you will always need to wear an evening dress. Such occasions might include weddings, formals, and theater or opera premieres.
If there is no dress codenamed on your invitation, you will need to make the call on whether to turn up in formal evening wear or in semi-formal wear. The difference is subtle, but important. Formal wear for women typically means a long dress, which might include elaborate details such as embroidery, beadwork, or a sweeping train. This is the kind of gown a celebrity would wear on the red carpet at a top industry event, or that a First Lady might wear to an inauguration ball.
Semi-formal wear is a degree less elaborate. These dresses, while long, would not have a train and might have less ornate beadwork. Shorter dresses are acceptable, too, as are formal pants suits, particularly if they have elaborate detailing, such as hand-sewn beadwork.
What to Wear With Your Markdown Evening Gown
Choosing your gown is just the first step towards creating your formal evening look. You will also need to choose complementary accessories. This might include jewelry such as earrings, bracelets, neck wear, hair pins, a brooch, a purse, shoes and some form of outerwear.
You will not need to wear every type of jewelry at once, however. Your choice of jewelry should be influenced by the neckline of your gown and how you will wear your hair. If your gown has a V neck, for example, you can skip a necklace and instead wear a bracelet and an elaborate ring. A gown with off-the-shoulder sleeves might call for a pendant necklace and earrings, while a straight across neckline would suit a choker and a pair of earrings.
A lot of thought will need to go into putting together a coordinated look to enhance your evening gown.
Of equal importance is the right underwear, which can make a world of difference to how your gown sits on you.
