All I need to know about attending Black Tie Events I learned from watching Gossip Girl. Therefore, I don’t attend Black Tie Events.

What was the wedding like that you wore this dress to as a bridesmaid? Outdoors and summer/springy and casual or more formal and winter? As someone who doesn’t dress up often it can be hard to understand what seem like silly standards but people on this thread are really just trying to give you the advice you asked for. “I am still trying to wrap my head around what type of dress would be conservation, formal, and still attractive and not flashy or uncomfortable! ” Something made of a less clingy/thin fabric with a bit more coverage. A vneck aline dress made of something thicker than a stretch polyester blend would be great. Especially with thicker straps, a slightly higher v neck, and or without the thigh slit. All of those aspects combined with the thin stretch material make your dress better suited for a fun dinner on a beach vacation than for a formal winter wedding. Maybe this could be a good opportunity to get to know your boyfriend’s family by asking what they will be wearing so you get a better sense of the dress code?

I would wear if for a black tie event. I think you should be very comfortable with what you pick. If you really love this dress and can imagine yourself enjoying the black tie event, then you should do that. You look great in that dress, and you can pull it off. But I am also the type who wouldn’t be posting my picture with the dress and asking opinions. I would just do it.
