LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles and Hollywood are famous for throwing the glitziest black tie events, and Jovani is renowned for dressing them! It's easy for men to choose an outfit for such parties, all they have to do is slip on a tux. For ladies, there are a lot more choices to be made, but the designers at Jovani make the processes a lot easier with their black dresses. However, choosing just one amazing dress among the large collection is where things get tricky.

A true black tie event is not just a cocktail party, nor is it an occasion where a lady wears business attire. It is an extra special, fancy event. It is customary to honor the event by wearing a long, floor length evening gown. Jovani has an amazing variety of long formal dresses and style number Jovani 93738  is one of the most impressive. This elegant cap sleeve ponte trumpet gown features lace nude panels with exquisite embroidery.  For the woman who demands attention and the spotlight, slip on Jovani 72058 and you will have heads turning immediately. This gorgeous strapless floor length evening gown features an asymmetrical oversized ruffle that cascades from the waist down. On top, the bodice is pleated with a crystal encrusted waistband. 

A lady can also get away with wearing a shorter length dress to a black tie event, but it has to be exceptional. If not black, the short dress should be a rich deep color such as brown or grey. It can also be jewel toned or designed with chic metals so as not to look too casual. Jovani specializes in designing these edgy, yet sophisticated dresses. Jovani 72692 for instance, is a knee length dress featuring a chiffon overlay in black, eggplant or navy. A favorite among celebrities is the sensuous one shoulder jersey Jovani 77855, which features unique beading and comes in black, gunmetal, ivory or red.

Be sure your accessories are just as formal as your gown or short black tie dress. Pull out your best jewelry for the event--the more sparkle, the better. After all, it's time for you to shine! Gold and silver jewelry, handbags and heels are occasionally welcomed in a formal ensemble. A satin, beaded or smaller clutch will also look nice with your formalwear. It is also fun to dress up your hairstyle to match the glamour of the event you are attending. A stylish up do, sideswipe, or luxurious curls fashioned with a delicate barrette would be lovely. Uncombed, windblown hair would not be lovely and could ruin your entire articulate look.

Check to see if your black tie event is indoors or outdoors, and what the weather is scheduled to be like on that day. Temperature may affect your decision making when choosing the perfect black tie dress. Jovani offers unique designs for all types of weather. You can choose an stunning strapless gown with light, perhaps sheer material or a or long sleeved gown or short dress with heavier materials.
