Wear a black tail coat (a waist-length jacket with long tails on back) matching black pants, white bow tie, white pique shirt and white vest. Women wear floor-length or ball gowns.
Men wear tuxedos; women can opt for a
floor-length gown or a cocktail dress (but not a ball gown).
Tuxedos and suits are equally appropriate for male guests, while women can wear either a cocktail dress or a straight floor-length gown (but not a ball gown).
The invitation usually specifies a theme for the event. This allows the guests to have fun with their attire, wearing costumes or special outfits suitable for the venue. If a guest chooses not
to partake in wearing festive attire, it’s usually
appropriate to wear cocktail looks.
