I’m going to a black tie event in a few weeks time and I’m not sure what to wear dress wise. Do you think this would be appropriate or too casual. I’m trying to kill two birds with one stone as I’ve got another event a few weeks after.

Based on my experience that’s too casual I’m afraid Rocky
I don’t think that’s suitable for a black tie event, Rocky. What’s the other event?
I chose that one from that page too, RH. Not sure it would suit her other outing though.
I don't see a tie anywhere.
nope not a black tie dress.

Thanks both. The other event is a Year 13 prom, so a bit more casual than a black tie.
Red, that dress is lovely, but I’d need heels to get away with it and I can’t wear them anymore. That and the need for easy access for the ladies.

Arghhh. I really hate buying clothes.
This is the definition of black tie

Black Tie Dress Etiquette

The code calls for women to wear a floor-length gown or dress. Cocktail dresses are an acceptable option for black tie. Long dresses, however, tend to be more elegant. This dress code is best if it has a sophisticated silhouette that is feminine and elegant, such as black
If that’s the sort of style you feel comfortable with look for something in dark plain material. You can dress it up with nice jewellery. That’ll look more ‘eveningy’ abd will suit the prom too. Patterns aren’t good for black tie events - at least not in my opinion.

That dress needs heels, RH, and Rocky doesn’t wear heels so long would be better. Lovely though.

Thanks all. Back to the drawing board, I think. I’m a bit limited as I find that most of the maxi dresses that I like are a bit too short for me.
Rocky, how about the long flowing purple one in RH’s link? That looks lovely.

Do you know that company? Are they really so inexpensive? I’ve never bought clothes on line.
That one comes in black or wine too - as well as lighter colours.
Question Author
I don’t know the company at all. The dress is lovely, but a bit bridesmaidy. I usually only buy online from companies that I know, and do free returns.
Perfect.......very elegant says Mrs sqad who knowa what she is talking about.
Rocky, I have bought from that company it was a few years ago and it was a more formal dress but I was happy with it
Do we not know what we are talking about Sqad?
