Fashion Stylists for Real People

Fashion Hmmmms…Answered

Ok, here it is – the clue to de-coding the dress code hmmmmm… dum, dum, dum… It all depends on what the guy is wearing!!!! That’s the rule of thumb, the barometer of sorts. So, what I mean is if the invitation calls for Black Tie Optional and the gentleman you are attending with will be wearing a tux then you can/should wear a black tie gown. If it’s Black Tie Optional and he is wearing a suit (that is the option my guy usually picks if optional is an option) than a cocktail dress is appropriate. Dressy casual – well in this case the guy will probably wear a sport coat but not a suit, maybe with jeans (that’s the oxymoron part, jeans + a nicer top = Dressy Casual) so that’s your guide, get it? Even if you are attending the event sans gentleman you can still use this…
