Dress Suggestions

Dance instruction can be casual, but dress for the ball should be semiformal or formal.

Women’s Dress

Any long dress, authentic to the time period or a formal, long prom-length dress or a semiformal long church dress. We also suggest that your hair be done up or you wear a hat. We traditionally wear gloves. Shawls and fans were also popular.

Men’s Dress

A dress shirt with nice pants, a business suit, or a suit authentic to the regency period would all be appropriate. We also suggest you wear gloves. Monocles and cravats were also popular.
