When it comes to wedding dresses, you may not have much of a choice with colors and sometimes length. Black may not be accepted as bride’s much coveted wedding dress but when it comes to evening dress, ladies shine in black as much as guys rock in tuxedos.
When you are invited in an occasion, the first thing that pops in your mind is dress. Selecting appropriate dress for the event is quite confusing.

Dress codes are tricky things; they have rules and countless dos and don’ts that are pretty much set in stone in certain situations. While formal is perhaps an easier classification to understand than vague directions to wear semi formal or smart casual. It is good to have some ideas about major dress codes entail.
While formal may seem straightforward instruction and ladies can wear long evening dresses with high heels that make them look elegant but sometimes this is not absolute fact. In its purest form, formal dressing might require you to get yourself in an actual ball gown.
Black tie events have dress code pretty much defined for guys telling them to wear a formal tux but this code doesn’t say anything on the subject of what to wear for ladies. Women are expected to wear longer evening gowns at black tie event.
Cocktail dress is appropriate for formal event. Outfit for cocktail is shorter and is little more glamorous than traditional longer length evening gown.
