 My husband has a work party in a couple weeks. The invite says business casual. Im a jeans and t shirt kind of girl. I dont own a dress. I have one nice dressy kind of shirt, its a bit small, and a pair of dark wash jeans. Thats really it. Will that fly? Am i resigned to slacks or a dress? Neither of which i have, or am willing to buy.

Thank you ladies. I am not going to go out and buy anything for this party. Well, not anything ill wear once. I guess im rocking jeans and embarrassing my husband or not going.

That last line of my immature edit was a smart ass statement. I will be going, and i will be wearing my dark jeans with a dressy top and jewelry and heels. Of course ill do my hair and make up. That will be my effort. Im sorry i just dont want to go out and buy something i dont feel i will wear enough to warrent buying it.

Dress clothing, but not suits and ties. For men, dress pants, dress shirt. For women, nice skirt or dress pants, and a blouse.

Business casual would be like a pair of slacks or khakis and a decent shirt.  Not jeans.

Business casual is not a suit but not jeans.  Most offices daily attire is business casual these days.  I wouldn't wear jeans.  I would buy some pants or a dress.

Not jeans. Slacks or khakis and a nice dress shirt or a polo type shirt with a collar.
