Focus On: Party Dress Codes

Those holiday party invitations have been arriving in the mail. And, while you certainly know how to eat, drink and be merry, you may have no idea how to dress "creative cocktail!" Check out these dress code explanations so you can be there with bells on and the right attire, no matter what the occasion.                                                 


Holiday Attire (a.k.a. festive and creative cocktail): For Women - A vibrant dress with sophisticated bling and a glittery clutch.

For Men - A velvet blazer or a classic suit with a fun tie. Or without a tie, wear gray flannel trousers and a colorful, cashmere sweater.


Cocktail (a.k.a. semi-formal after-five):

For Women - A little black dress in lace, chiffon and velvet with dressy shoes. Jewel tones or icy pastels also will work. No matter what the color, the hemline should be no more than two inches above the knee.

For Men - A fitted, dark suit that is a toned-down version of a tuxedo. Also wear a white shirt with a dark tie.


Formal (a.k.a. black tie):

For Women - A tea- or floor-length gown with an evening bag. Then add a dramatic necklace or dangling earrings.

For Men - A tuxedo with a black bow tie.


Dressy Resort (a.k.a. garden party, outdoor wedding or island chic):

For Women - A breezy sundress or shift accessorized with bright jewelry. If you are in the tropics, feel free to wear an exotic print.

For Men - Either a tan or linen suit, or a pale shirt with white pants. For the shoes it should be loafers without socks. And, if it's a country club setting, wear khakis and a pastel oxford shirt with a sport jacket.


Casual (a.k.a. come as you are):

For Women - Nice jeans or capris and a cute top with ballet flats.

For Men - A button-down shirt with jeans, or shorts for the summer.


Business Attire (a.k.a. office appropriate):

For Women - A simple suit or sheath dress. Even if your office is usually casual, opt for the skirt over pants, a blouse over a tee shirt and pumps over flats.

For Men - A navy or gray suit with a white or pale blue dress shirt finished with an elegant tie.


Now you will know exactly what to wear for any event. But if you don't have the right clothes for that certain party and don't have time to shop, contact GoodDeeds.
