There is something about winter that just reminds me of black tie events. Dressing up in your most beautiful gown and risking it out in the freezing air to go to a grand event at the most amazing venue. Why do they all seem to happen in the winter?
Black tie is dress code for formal evening events, although in recent years elements from its core ingredients have been snatched by the high street for various evening looks. It's not unusual to see a play on a single breasted black barathea with thin satin lapel combined with jeans. Cool? Hmmm?
