Do I have to wear a dress to a formal event?

I hate wearing dresses. I've always been a tomboy and I've never worn a dress but there's this stupid gala I need to go to

  • If it's strict black tie, yes.

    If it's just 'formalish' you can wear a pantsuit, it will look bad, but it wouldn't be offensive.

  • As a fellow tomboy, I feel you. But I would advise a dress :/ Nothing flashy or overly girly. But formal events usually dictate women wear dresses.
