Earlier this month, we showed off some ideas for what to wear to a fall wedding by dress code, but what about dress codes that fall in-between the lines, like black-tie optional? For black-tie optional men have the option of a tuxedo, but can also wear a dark suit and darker colored or black tie, as long as the look is formal in appearance.
Women should wear a formal style as well, and this maxi dress is the perfect look to go to a black-tie and black-tie optional event. I love the high neckline and the knit fabric which seems it would give the gown some nice weight and substance for fall and winter events.
Black Maxi Dress with Gold and Black Accessories
Because this evening gown has threads of silver in the knit, one can pull from that gray tone to accessorize. We also added some gold metal here to warm up the tone, the mix metallic style gives a nice contrast. We also love this similar evening gown style in the same fabric done in a sleek off-the-shoulder style gown.
