  • If you’re wondering what to wear to a hunt ball or looking for hunt ball dresses, we’ve got you covered. As our hunting editor Catherine Austen suggests when she revealed what you need to know before you go to a hunt ball, you should first check the dress code. A few hunt balls stipulate white tie, but the majority will plum for black tie.

    Simply put, black tie for ladies best translates as long and of an evening-appropriate fabric. This typically includes materials such as velvet, chiffon, silk or lace, but these days other smart fabrics are also acceptable. Think floor-sweeping gowns rather than cocktail dresses. Catherine says “Go long (but slinky) if you are in any doubt”, adding that you should avoid wearing “your most expensive suede heels – they will get wrecked and you will regret it.”
