Going to a VIP event is
one of the most pleasurable things one can experience in his or her life. Such
events carry great importance and it is always pivotal to look good while
VIP events vary from business meetings to Oscars. We can always see how women and men alike try to pick up the best clothes to look good. It could be tough sometimes.
When Sharon Stone appeared at the 1998 Oscars in her husband’s white shirt in 1998, it had the
effect of an exploding bomb. The actress complemented the outfit with a Vera
Wang skirt. Fashion critics were generous with praise, appreciating her
The outfit is for you,
not you for the outfit. But any celebration, whether it’s a wedding, a
presentation or anniversary it is important to dress appropriately. Therefore,
we need to learn to distinguish between four main types of holiday dress code.
If you ever happen to
attend the Nobel Prize ceremony or at the president’s dinner, then your clothes
will have to correspond to a dress code called a white tie. This is the most
rigorous version of the evening look! The dress is only on the floor, the
shoulders are always closed, on the hands are long white gloves, the shoes are
velvet boats, the jewelry is made exclusively of diamonds, the hair is cut into
the hair and decorated with a diadem.
The man should have a
black tailcoat, a white shirt with a standing collar and a white bow tie, white
or grey gloves, and black patent leather shoes. One can only rejoice that even
Hollywood stars are not often forced to dress like that.
Dress code is not
mandatory only at such events. It may seem a little surprising, but with the
development of the gambling and casino industry, the appropriate outfit has
become obligatory in online
casinos for VIP players when they are
going live. You can draw a parallel between the real poker events, for
instance. If you look at the players, they are dressed according to the proper
dress code. This goes for online players as well – and the dealers of the live
casino should be dressed properly.
White Tie, Ultra formal
White Tie is the most
strict dress code style used at events such as ball, presidential or royal
receptions, and the presentation of a prestigious award. The basic rules of
clothing for women are as follows:
In women, the dress should not have a length
above the ankle;
Bare shoulders are not allowed;
Mandatory gloves are white in color above the
elbow and stockings;
You should not wear jewelry; only precious
jewelry is allowed here;
Hair should be collected in an elegant hairstyle;
Makeup – neat and discreet;
Handbag – miniature size.
A man is obliged to put
on patent leather shoes, a tailcoat with a white bow tie. He also needs to wear
his combat regalia tape, if one is available.
Black Tie Invited or Black Tie
Black Tie is the second
most rigorous dress code style, which is popular on many special occasions. In
this case, a long dress of not too bright color will be excellent clothing for
a woman. You can also give preference to a cocktail dress below the knees. Here
you can use good jewelry and choose a small clutch. As for shoes, they should
be closed and with a heel.
For men, depending on
the name of the style (Black Invited or Black Tie Optional), you can wear or
not wear a black tie. Here you can also choose the outfit: a suit or a tuxedo
with a white shirt. From shoes, black shoes should be preferred.
This type of dress code is usually allowed for events such as a corporate banquet, dinner
party, family celebration with a large number of guests. Despite the fact that
it is not such a triumph as a White tie or Black Tie, you should still adhere
to the following rules:
A woman can wear both a long and a short dress, and also prefer a suit – with a skirt or trousers. From jewelry, you should choose high-quality and stylish jewelry or modest jewelry with natural stones. As for shoes for women, it can be almost any, but only necessarily in heels.
A man can wear a suit,
shirt, and classic shoes. It is not necessary to wear a tie.
VIP event differ from each other. Sometimes a pretty much regular event could be labeled as a VIP – it depends. However, both men and women should be aware of the fact that such events do not occur regularly and when invited to them, clothes should be chosen carefully.
