Q. Do you wear short gloves to an afternoon black tie affair?
A. Wearing short gloves all depends on the dress you’re wearing. Black tie is black tie no matter if it’s afternoon or evening. While many women don’t even think of wearing gloves, it can be seen as a sophisticated and elegant look. It works best with dresses that are sleeveless to 3/4 length sleeves since it’s best to see where the gloves end and a peek of some skin.
