How To Dress For A Black Tie Event? Here’s Everything You Need To Know About The 2023 ABS-CBN Ball Theme

Know more about this year's theme and join us as we unpack our red carpet predictions!

So the dress code says black tie—exciting! This is the one dress code that requires you to follow the rules, so to say, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it. The words black tie are synonymous with floor-length hemlines in the fashion dictionary. Think ankle-skimming gowns and ball gowns. In addition to the length of the dress, fabrics are of the utmost importance too. Tie in the look with sumptuous flowy silks, luxurious chiffon, or dreamy layers of tulle. Add a few embellishments to your look! Wear matching or complementing jewelry, an appropriate evening clutch, and chic heels. 


For men, the silk-labelled jacket maketh the black tie outfit. Complete the look with a dress shirt, a dark fitted pair of trousers that will match your jacket, black patent shoes, and a bow tie. Men can also look into adding cummerbunds, a waistcoat, a watch, and cufflinks to show that you have done your research.


Now that you’ve done your reading, it’s time to take a look at inspirations for your black tie looks. With only just a few days before the 2023 ABS-CBN Ball, take a look at the gallery down below to better understand the black tie dress code.
