Basic dress code rules

Whether we like it or not, our whole life is somehow connected with the choice of clothes. For a job, a walk, an interview or a wedding, there is no way to "get off" in one way. Each occasion, its own outfit. For more than a year now, we have often used the word combination "dress code". The very term "dress code" came from the UK, as a designation of the prescribed style of clothing.

The etiquette establishes such basic clothing styles: strict (Black Tie or White Tie), casual (Casual), business (Business), evening (Black Tie Invited, Black tie Optional, Cocktail Attire, Semi-formal or A5).< br /> The most austere style used at the official level, such as international receptions and balls, meetings of delegations, and evening receptions. The only acceptable options for "White tie", namely, a formal suit, a bow tie, a white tie — and "Black tie" — strict evening suit, or tuxedo, black bow tie.

Dressing according to the dress code «White tie» a woman is forced to wear a long evening dress on the floor, stiletto heels, always with a closed toe and heel, stockings. As an accessory, a small handbag and gloves are suitable. Jewelry is allowed only natural, ideally, of course, precious metals and stones, and not a little important point, watches in this image will be out of place. A man must wear a black tailcoat with trousers, a white bow-tie collar shirt, a white waistcoat, a white bow tie, white or gray gloves and black patent leather shoes.

"Blacktie" for women, it allows a knee-length cocktail or evening dress, closed-toed shoes, high heels, a hat, and in this case it is better to leave gloves at home. The hairstyle is strict, it is better if it is removed back or raised. Men are required to wear a white shirt, black bow tie and black shoes.
