Some people have problems when they have to wear a certain dress code for an event, but it’s very important to understand that a dress code is a always good thing, because it tells us exactly what to wear to that particular event.
For men, the dress code establishes strict rules on what to wear and what not to wear, but for women it’s just a guideline and it’s a little harder to decide what to put on. Here are are couple of things about three important dress codes and exactly how to dress up for the occasion.
White tie is one of the most formal dress codes – often used for special occasions like formal balls, evening weddings and even official dinners, and for this particular reason it’s very important to be extremely careful with every detail of your outfit. As you can easily see in this image Diane Kruger is showing off a beautiful example of a white tie outfit. That dress is simply stunning, right?
How to dress a white tie?
First, you must wear long evening dresses all the time, elegant and chic. When it comes to accessories, you can use silk or cotton gloves right to your elbow in a formal white shade, and also some classy jewerly pieces. The shoes are also very important to a white tie look, and you need them to be in one color, matching your accessories.
If you don’t know this yet, black tie is a dress code of formal wear for evening events and social functions. Worn only for events after 6 p.m., black tie is semi-formal and a bit less formal than white tie. In the photo above you have a great example, with Elizabeth Hurley wearing a simple and chic cocktail pink dress. For a black tie event elegant materials like silk or satin are better than everything else.

You can easily opt for chic cocktail or evening dresses, with a pair of lovely gloves and a fine shawl, all that matched by a sexy pair of heels and a chic handbag. It’s very important to use tasteful jewelry that will add your outfit a touch of glitz and glam.
This dress code is used for all kinds of events and it’s obviously less formal than black and white tie dress codes.
