Tips for the inaugural ball

MEDFIELD

Millie Downing, founder of the Etiquette School of New England in Medfield, offers simple fashion tips for the Deval Patrick inaugural parties tomorrow.

The main gala's invitation specifies 'black tie optional.' "Optional means that minimally men should be in a suit and tie, preferably black," Downing said.

For women, Downing suggests an elegant floor-length dress. She implores party-goers not to wear anything funky.
