The Black tie dress code from women: your 2022 guide to the perfect dress!

by Goddiva Account 29 Jun 2022

It’s officially summer 2022 and the summer events and wedding invitations are coming through in full speed along with a note saying “Black tie dress code”. Events with such a dress code can be a little daunting, especially if you are a white shirt and blue jeans type person. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

The first step you should take is to break down what the dress code means, that way you know what your options are. For starters, a ‘black tie’ code for an upcoming event does not mean that you will have to wear anything over the top to make an appearance. It is simply a notification from the hosts, asking their guests to wear an outfit that is not casual, basic or short in length. That way the outfits are suitable to the atmosphere and aesthetic of the event.

Although the term itself could mean a simple suit and tie for men, women have a bigger variety to choose from when it comes to the dress code. You can wear an elegant evening dress, or opt for a co-ord set, you can wear anything as long as it’s glamorous.

Here are some tips and guides to help you choose the perfect dress for your upcoming event.
