A gala dinner is a special dinner, formal event, celebration, or festive occasion. There is etiquette and certain expectations regarding clothing and footwear. If there are themes or dress recommendations, it is best to dress accordingly.
Opt for a long or knee-length dress, silver or gold pieces of jewelry, and medium height heels. A gala dinner is usually a lengthy affair and it is important to pick shoes that are comfortable to walk in and dance over a longer period.
Another option is to pick a dress made from chiffon, velvet, taffeta, or silk. Go for a glamorous fabric. Combine with a pair of open-toed stilettos or strappy heels. Avoid closed-toe pumps with chunky heels and make sure you choose a dress and shoes in matching colors.
A gala dinner is often a formal event that is expensive to host and organize. You may want to choose a designer outfit and shoes that are stylish enough to compliment a formal event. A pair of satin shoes is a good choice. Combine with a diamond necklace, chandelier earrings, and a stylish bracelet. Avoid shoes with wood and cork elements as well as booties and boots.
