Here’s the exact attire for…
Baptism, Bar Mitzvah, or Other Religious Ceremony
Wear a lovely dress for the day, possibly with a floral or petal or a suit with feminine accents and underpinnings. Avoid anything low-cut short or too clingy. Bring the lightest jacket, sweater or a stylish jacket to cover up sleeves-less designs. In the event of a party after the ceremony and there’s not much time to change between, dress in formal attire or cocktail pants and a wrap to cover your body at the temple or in the church.
Black-Tie Wedding or Charity Gala
Think tuxedos and shimmery fabrics, and elaborate elements. While the rules of etiquette are becoming more relaxed on the issue of length for dresses the best option is an elongated or floor-length dress. The column- or A-line style will look the most elegant, but you can also wear a chic, well-tailored and formal outfit. It’s time to enhance your look by wearing elegant jewelry, stunning shoes, and a stunning hairstyle.
If the invitation says “black tie optional,” you are free to let loose a little. For instance an elegant knee-length cocktail dress can be appropriate in the absence of an extravagant dress. Formal events need to dressed in Pakistani formal suits.
Cocktail Party, Engagement Party, and Most Weddings
The dress code for these fancy occasions is most likely to have the word “cocktail attire” (although they’re not as elegant like a black-tie event). Therefore, you should choose an elegant cocktail dress. You can’t be wrong with a simple black dress or an eye-catching jewel-tone or pastel dress. It’s also possible to combine it with formal separates.
Nowadays cocktails can range from a lavish social gathering–think of that glitzy knee-length dress that comes from the “special occasions” department–to a informal gathering of friends around a buffet of food. However, for most of the time, “cocktail parties are dressy-casual, so you can’t go wrong if you wear a top with some special details and a skirt or tailored pants, plus heels or fancy flats,” suggests the fashion designer Joseph Williamson.
“Avoid fabrics that are too casual, like chino, jersey, and denim.” Beware of shorter styles. To determine the hemline’s suitability, you should stand with your hands by your sides. The hemline shouldn’t be any over your fingertips.
