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. Both featured from Nasty Gal 2016 collection.
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. Above featured from 2017 Nasty Gal collection.
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. Look featured from Nasty Gal.
This is your everyday look, lunch with the girls, or comfy look to run errands. Both of which are also from Nasty Gal.
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.
