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

If I had to wear a dress I wouldnt go. Dress pants and a nice shirt is good.

If you're planning on wearing a pair of chiffon palazzo pants and a heavily beaded or sequined/paillette top, you can get away with it, but "cocktail attire" means a killer dress...with heels!

You need a dress to be appropriate, and that top isn't near dressy enough. But, there is something to be said for a woman who feels goods and is confident, even if not wearing a dress. Good luck, and have fun!

Cocktail attire does NOT mean dress and tuxedos. Wear what you plan to.

Yes. Well you'd need to wear something dressy and NOT business casual. If its a dressy blouse and slacks so think itd be fine.

I don't think you have to as long as your outfit is dressy.
