The Jazz Age Weekend Black Tie Ball is the exciting conclusion to a full Saturday at Newport! The restored grand ballroom of the Fairlawn Estate is the perfect setting for elegant evening. Check back for more details and the announcement of this year’s band!
The theme for the evening is “Black Tie” dress of the ~1940’s period. Dress code is not mandatory, but the suggestion is for dinner jackets (tuxedos) for the men and fancy dress for the ladies. For more info on this go to the “Black Tie Guide” website. Naturally, this website is devoted to men’s formal wear, but it is a wealth of information about cultural standards and is a great way to understand the period. Also see the GBVS “What to Wear” section of our website above for more vintage clothing info.
