Corporate Charity Gala

Once again, we’re faced with an event that merges work colleagues and champagne. Dressing can be a challenge, especially when the invitation calls for black tie. The charity gala where your company has bought a table is a formal event, but one in which your boss will be present so don’t approach this like you’re J-Lo going to the Grammys. The basic tenets of Black Tie apply here, as discussed at length in this recent post, but avoid anything too risqué as you do not want to be the subject of Monday morning whispers at the office.
