Black Tie- This is usually the kind of dress code you’ll be given for Endless Nights or special events. Men should wear a tuxedo with a bow tie, cummerbund, and a nice pair of leather dress shoes. Ladies should wear a floor length dress, typically an evening gown or a ballgown, dark colors are recommended. Victorian evening wear, court style gowns, high fashion goth encouraged.
Semi Formal- Men at least wear a darker colored suit and tie or button down shirt with encouraged vest, ascot and jacket. Ladies wear a knee length to tea length style dress, dress shoes expected. Black always recommended. Victorian goth, roaring 20's, high fashion goth encouraged.
Cocktail Attire- Men should wear dark button down shirts (with or without a tie), dress pants with dress shirts, and optional vest (most Victorian attire accepted) . Women should wear knee-length dresses, knee length skirts or dress pants with a nice sweater or blouse, or go for the classic “little black cocktail dress.”
Garden attire- This means you should dress to impress, but consider the environment when you select your outfit. For garden attire, ladies should wear wedge heels or flats so they don’t sink in the dirt or grass. Depending on the time of year, a garden attire gathering could mean light colored linen for men and summer dresses for women.
Business Casual- Generally speaking, women should wear a skirt or dress with a hem past the knee, or tailored dress pants with a button-down shirt or blouse. Men should wear dress pants or khakis, with a collared shirt and a belt. Referred to often as Corporate Goth in the vampire subculture.
Casual- Essentially, this means that anything goes...almost. You should still be dressed and avoid looking dishelved if possible. Leave the hot mess action to Bourbon Street.
