Scottish Black Tie Events

Scottish dress is often worn at black tie events, especially at Scottish reels and ceilidhs. While there is a more formal version which may be worn when the dress code is white tie, the black tie version is much more common, even at white tie events. The traditional black tie version of Highland dress consists of: Black Prince Charlie jacket, Black waistcoat, Kilt, White shirt or Ghillie shirt, Black bow tie, Black Ghillie brogues, White kilt hose, Flashes. Other colours for both the Prince Charlie jacket, and the hose are seen. The Lowland version of black tie is a variation on normal black tie, with trews worn with a normal dinner jacket or Prince Charlie jacket. Trews are also often worn during the summer and in a warm clime.
