What is evening dress?

At its most formal, Evening dress means white tie - the highest of all dress codes. Think Elton John's annual White Tie and Diamond's do! Beautiful, usually floor-length gowns, topped off with glittering jewels and finished with towering heels and clutch bags.

But Evening dress can also mean black tie, formal wear or just plain "make an effort".

Evening dresses can be something full length and princessy, fashion forward frocks, understated LBDs or something more classic and formal like a ball gown or prom dress.

The trick is to work out what sort of event it is and dress for your shape. Glamorous awards ceremony? Friend's birthday party? Corporate do?
