Whether your getting invited to a birthday dinner, a wedding, a date, or just going out with friends, if its unknown territory (and your anything like me) one of your first questions is “What do I wear?” or “How should I dress?”. All of these non descriptive words, semi -casual, formal, black tie, white tie, smart casual, etc what do they really mean? Still leaving me with the unanswered question….what do I wear there? Well, after doing some research I have some answers for the ongoing question!
Cocktail dress, or a skirt and a cute top can both be worn to fit a semi casual occasion.
FORMAL/ BLACK TIE
Formal for women does require a full length dress. The only exception to the rule is if it is Semi formal than a woman can wear separates but still be floor length or at the very lease a paint suit.
Often this is the look that is versatile. Typically pants and matched with a pair of heels. Can often be worn during the day transitioning into a night time setting.
This is your everyday look, lunch with the girls, or comfy look to run errands.
So whether your getting ready for a date, attending a wedding, or just having a day out with the girls, remember first impressions are everything, and you never know who you might run into, so make sure your always dressed to impress.
