Black Tie Dresses
You've received the invite to the black tie event of the season. But what do you wear? At Parlour X, you’ll find black tie dresses that are designed to make a statement. From sleek Grecian gowns to dramatic plunging v-neck ballgowns, our edit of black tie dresses come in a variety of silhouettes to flatter every body shape and express your individual style.
A black tie dress code is an elegant, sophisticated dress code used for formal and semi-formal occasions. Black tie dresses are typically long, ornate gowns made from luxurious fabrics like satin or silk. They can be adorned with embellishments but are often kept simple in order to maintain a sophisticated look. If you’re looking to make a glamorous impression at a wedding or gala, black tie dresses are the way to go.
When it comes to black tie event dresses, there’s no such thing as too much glamour. First, take into account the event’s location. Is it indoors or outdoors? If it’s outdoors, opt for a light, airy gown in a silk or chiffon fabric. For an indoor event, a velvet or satin black tie dress will add a touch of glamour, while a lace option will exude an air of romance.
Next, consider your body type. An empire-waist dress is flattering on all figures, while a mermaid-style gown will hug your curves. If you’re petite, look for a dress with intricate details, such as ruffles or beading, which will help create extra volume and definition. And if you have a large bust, be sure to choose a dress with a supportive bodice.
