what to wear hunt ball

It is that time of year again in our world where the excitement of the Hunt Ball begins to mount.  It is a dashing affair with the ladies in elegant black gowns and the men in tuxes or their “pinks” which are actually scarlet formal hunt Jackets.  Of all the articles we enjoyed presenting, What to Wear to a Hunt Ball is one of our most popular. Traditionally women wore either white or black  to a hunt ball but through the years, the accepted color has become black.  We shopped this sensational selection,  whether you want strapless, sleeveless or a little cover, you won’t find a more stunning line-up anywhere.  Any one of these beauties will take you right through the season of long formal dresses.  Please remember when you click through our site to shop, a portion of our commission is donated to our Charity of the Month.

We consulted Pat Ike, our expert on the subject, for a bit of history, “White or black and long is correct…more specifically…no color.  Proper term is always scarlet when referring to “pinks”.  Named after the tailor Mr. Pink.  Traditionally red is never used as a descriptive term. When the British soldiers came home from the war (redcoats) they hunted in their uniform coats.”
