If a wedding invitation specifies Black Tie optional, then it is time to bring on the glitz and glamour!

Elevated from a cocktail attire wedding, black tie optional insinuates that the event is super fancy and your attire should follow suit.

On Me: Reem Acra Dress (Rent) c/o, Silver Cluster Studs (Rent) c/o, Red Shoes (here and here), Black Beaded Clutch (DSW in stores), Red Lipstick

Part 2: What to Wear to a Black Tie Optional Wedding

For men, this means a tuxedo or a dark suit and tie. For women, this means a long dress or a really dressy tea-length or short dress with heels, dramatic jewelry and hair.

A tri-fecta of lace, beading and tulle makes this Reem Acra tea-length dress from Rent the Runway perfect for a Black Tie Optional attire. Pair this gown with a statement shoe and silver cluster earrings and you’ll be a total knockout.

Besides my wedding dress, I have never felt so glam in my whole life. I just wanted to twirl and dance the night away.
