What is the "White tie" dress code?
It is also called full evening dress or a dress suit, is the most formal evening dress code in western high fashion. For men, it consists of a black dress tailcoat worn over a white starched shirt, marcella waistcoat and the eponymous white bow tie worn around a detachable collar. High-waisted black trousers and patent leather shoes complete the outfit, although decorations can be worn, and a top hat and white scarf are acceptable as accessories. Women wear full length evening or ball gown and, optional, jewelry, tiaras, a small bag & evening gloves.
Baroque inspiration for white tie can also be additional touches like lace collars around nick and cuffs or on the chest. More information is available in Women & men fashion.
