For a semi formal or black tie dinner / ceremony event, in NYC, a cocktail dress will be appropriate. If it is a formal event a long dress can be worn. (Some folks will be in cocktail attire.) When in doubt a “Little Black Dress” (LBD) will always look chic. With a simple style dress wear a statement necklace (or statement earrings). If you wear a glitzy dress (sequins) you can wear simple jewelry. Carry an evening bag or clutch bag.
Jewelry That Makes A Statement
Jewelry that makes a statement sends a message about who you are and what you value, conveys confidence and can make an outfit chic. I think what you notice first about someone is their personal statement. A piece of jewelry that catches your eye when you see a woman qualifies as a “statement” piece of jewelry. Something that stands out from everything else.

Now young and seasoned designers are adding pockets to the cocktail dress and evening gowns for a casual chic look. These designers feel that pockets can give a four figure priced dress a less pretentious, relaxed elegance.
