Newark, NJ – The Ubuntu Awards are just 5 days away and we figured we'd help you get Black Carpet ready! We understand that getting ready for any awards ceremony can be pretty difficult, especially if you have no idea what the dress code is. But let's not fret or worry because in this post, we will break down the basic guidelines for formal attire. Yes, this is indeed a formal event.

First thing to note: There is  no such thing as being overdressed for the Ubuntu Awards! For this day, we want you to look your best, get camera ready and show off your style in elegance. Remember it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. So check out these tips: 

Women: Think Fashionably Chic with more than a hint of Classy! Go with a long evening gown, or switch it up with a chic formal cocktail dress. A little black dress is all you need. Be sure to accessorize and grab your favorite clutch and let your ensemble speak for itself! 


Men: Spruce it up a bit; you can be chic and dashing too!  You can never go wrong with a nice pair of slacks and dress top. Adding that sophisticated tie, or bowtie will definitely complete your outfit. Due note, tuxedos are also welcomed.
