Evening dress; evening suit

formal suit, composed of an evening jacket, evening-dress trousers (almost invariably in black), a white evening-dress waistcoat, and a white evening-dress shirt. White gloves and low black shoes are indispensable accessories. E. d. emerged in the 18th century as an outfit for military officers; only later did it become civilian clothing. In the early 19th century it began to be worn with long trousers; in the mid 19th century it had become formal attire only. E. d. is worn on gala social occasions; in ladieswear its equivalent is the evening gown.[[it:ESLO]:_abito_da_sera;_completo_da_sera]]
