    An invitation to a black-tie event is an opportunity to dress to the nines in a dazzling Tadashi Shoji gown. From black tie dresses that evoke timeless glamour to plus size gala dresses with exquisite draping and sequin embellishment, our black-tie styles are both distinctive and glamorous. We understand “black tie attire” can be confusing. “What is appropriate to wear?” is most often asked. What qualifies as appropriate? A style’s formality, length, and color. And if you ask us, the allure a dress creates is essential too. For a black tie affair, a floor-length gown is ideal, but a sophisticated cocktail dress may be acceptable, especially if the event is black-tie optional. Modest lace gowns with long sleeves are also suitable as black tie optional dresses. Short sleeves can be elegant too. Within our Black Tie edit, you’ll find evening gowns with cowl sleeves, draped cap sleeves, and off-shoulder ruffles. Jewel tones are suitable for a formal dinner while black gala dresses are always a safe bet for corporate events. Black tie wedding dresses do not need to be red carpet ready—you can get away with a little less formality. If you've received an invitation to a black tie wedding, try a Tadashi Shoji pintucked jersey gown with sequins insets or a dazzling fitted cocktail dress with asymmetric draping. A good rule of thumb is that winter weddings are more formal and darker colors will be appropriate. Lastly, don’t forget comfort. Tadashi Shoji’s gala dresses are made with fabrics that enjoy an inherent stretch. In addition, each piece is lined with a tailored jersey lining. Gala gowns must be elegant and easy to wear. If you’re still hesitant or would like style recommendations, a Tadashi Shoji customer specialist is just a call or click away. Don’t let a black-tie dress code be stressful. It’s a time to be glamorous and fabulous!
