What To Wear To A Black Tie Christmas Work Function

Whether you’re attending your own black tie Christmas work function or being escorted by your friend/husband/partner to their annual office Christmas party, the question remains the same – what do you wear?

A Black Tie Christmas work function dressing code requires attendees to dress in ‘black tie’ which simply entails semi-formal. This means tuxedo or shirt and tie for men, and a cocktail dress or evening gown for women.

Women are safe with knee-length or longer dresses in more formal styles and colours. Think a nice structured dress in black or deep red with heels and a throw if the function is outdoors. For modernity, women can also opt for a dressy pantsuit or jumpsuit for a contemporary twist on the traditional formal wear.

We give you 10 dresses and accessories which are perfect for any Christmas black tie event – all ready to rent from our collection at GlamCorner!
