business casual attire?

this weekend we are going out to eat for our anniversary, we are trying a new restaurant that is labeled as elegant fine dining...its pricey but has great reviews. the dress code is business or business casual....
we dont really go out to restaurants often being that i cook every night. ... so im not accustomed to restaurants with dress codes. for business /business casual, would a black long skirt, hosiery, nice high heels work? i just have on iea what kind of top to wear!!! i am a casual person usually or i dress alternatively... i have a black shirt that is very prety, has silk lining on the edges but it only goes over my shoulders..no sleeves, and it shows cleavage. think that is too much for business casual attire? i also have a purple button up shirt that is silky...which do you think would be better for this attire?

  • my skirt is just like that. heels are similar but shinier material. my purse is even close to that! i never buy expensive purses but my mom got me a fancy pancy name brand purse because she said i would need it..i suppose she is right lol.

  • The skirt sounds beautiful, not sure how all black would be, but sleeveless is fine and it is a date so cleavage is ok too! Business casual could even go as low as Khakis so you will be great in any skirt really. Have a great time!!!

  • yea all black creates a blocky look and that is not flattering on any figure

  • ill probably go with the purple because purple tends to bring out blue eyes well. then come home, change into clubbing attire and we are going out to hit up the dance club/bar :-)

  • Business casual means: no jeans, no t-shirts with writing on them, no shorts; for men, there is an additional rule of collars on shirts.
