Do I really have to wear a dress

Posted by   + Show Post
If the invitation says cocktail attire? I have a pair of very nice black dress slacks I planned to wear with a red dressy top

Quoting Roxygurl:

It's a red tank top but I plan on wearing a bolo/sweater/not sure what its called.

It's a shimmery red and hangs a bit lose on me. It comes down a bit in the front but not enough that it flashes anyone and its kinda sparkly at the top.


Quoting scarletmeshell:

What does the top look like?


I think that will look great. I don't think it has to be a dress. What kind of shoes will you wear?

I would assume it means a dress.

Yes, you need to get a dress.  I recommend a simple black dress that way it will never go out of style and you can wear it for years on end.

This is the top. I promise it looks fancier in person. My fiancé wrinkle his nose up at it based on the picture but then when it actually came in he said that it looks a lot nicer in person.

No. I've seen plenty of women wear extremely dressy pants and tops.

I'd say probably you would, sorry :/ I personally loove dresses so I can't really relate much but my advice would be to just find a dress you feel comfortable in and looks good, and remember its only for a night! :)

IMO, that looks too casual for an event that requires cocktail attire.

I think the slacks and blouse will be just fine
