Pluralism of trends and freedom from all sorts of rules, it would seem, gave ease in handling clothes. Outwear, humpback jackets, couture sneakers – you will not surprise anyone. It seems to us that it should be easier from the idea of dressing the way we want. But this does not provide answers to the question – what to go for a cocktail or evening event. Sometimes the organizers sometimes meet: put on a dress glamorous or gothic chic. In such cases, not rules are included, but fantasy. But still, looking at Chanel's couture workouts, it’s time to ask a question: how has the fashion changed ideas about the dress code? The changes did not affect the official embassy white-tie: tailcoats for men and dresses on the floor with closed shoulders for women. The maximum of changes occurs in the sphere of events after 6.
We have prepared some observations that will help you look fashionable and consistent with the note in the invitation.
Coat. Wear NOT on shoulders. Leave it to non-advanced street stylers. The coat should be worn properly, with sleeves. It's cool to stay in it the whole event – it's too good to give up in the dressing room. And since such a social life, it’s nice to look like you have three more visits planned for the evening. Artificial deficit always works.
A white shirt is better than a small black dress. The shirt can be combined with a huge amount of jewelry like large earrings or massive necklaces. The shirt will endure everything. Between unfastened and tightly fastened, it will be unbanal to choose the second.
A little black dress is an option if it is as simple as possible and sewn from a very expensive beautiful fabric. Like Hermes, for example. And zero accessories – otherwise you can look like the heroine of Fellini films. They are beautiful, but now they don’t walk and live like that. If you open it, then shoulders are the main trend of spring-summer 2016. Large cocktail rings on each finger. The funnier the rings, the better. Colored stones are more effective than white. This technique will refresh any too neutral outfit.
Men's steel watches are a sure accessory if you add them with another pair or bracelets.
The sheath and sweater work like a cocktail pair, if decorated with contrasting prints.
If there are no restrictions on the venue (such as the Ritz or Dorchester hotel) – denim is acceptable, especially if it is ideally simple or embroidered with stones, like a couture thing. The combination works in tandem with a silk (not cotton) blouse or jacket.
The more elegant the costume, the easier the hair.
You can wear black for a wedding if it is a black jacket with a white skirt. Retro-style outfits like Gucci are the perfect wedding option.
Open tops with an asymmetric train or straight dresses with tight trousers like Dior or Rosie Assoulin are the most interesting alternative to a tuxedo or dress.

Instead of a tuxedo, you can try silk trousers and a pompous elegant blouse with a high neck, ruffles and flounces, like Lanvin's. Paired with heel only.
Dresses on the floor are better to choose not black, but light. They look less old-fashioned. The main seasonal accent is ribbons tied or flying, it doesn’t matter.
The dress may not be on the floor, but below the knee if it is sewn with couture craftsmanship: with voluminous skirts like Delpozo or embroidered with fabric colors like Giambattista Valli.
