What to wear to a dinner party

You just got invited to a dinner party, and you’re looking forward to socializing with all
your friends, eating some good food, and maybe even having a drink or two. It’s
pretty much all you can think of the entire day, but when it comes time to get
ready in the evening, you realize that you haven’t yet picked out your attire.
To top it all off, you were planning to arrive fashionably late, meaning that
everyone else is already there, and calling someone to get style tips is out of
the question.

That’s exactly what brought you here, in hopes of finding a step by step guide on what exactly
to wear to this party. Now while we can’t pinpoint the exact clothes that you
should be pulling out of your closet at this very moment, we can run you
through a few dinner party scenarios and show you what would work best in each
given situation.

The outfit that you wear depends entirely on the type of dinner party that you’re going to. An
event being organized at your friend’s house will require a very different
get-up than one that’s taking place at a ballroom. Pay attention to the
setting, and dress accordingly.

For Men:

At the top of the dress code food chain is the black tie dress code. This will be best for an
event being held at a banquet hall, or even one taking place at a personal home
but with a classy dress code specified. Black tie is the easiest to prepare for
because the outfit is in the name. A black suit or black tuxedo work perfectly,
and can be worn with your choice of traditional tie or bow tie.

On the other end of the spectrum is the non-formal dinner party, for which a simple t-shirt and
jeans works best. Obviously, don’t wear the same jeans that you wear when
working in the garage, and try to go for clothes that are fitted to your
figure. The white t-shirt can be substituted with any other neutral coloured
t-shirt, as long as it fits the colour of the jeans.

Sometimes a t-shirt and jeans seems too informal, but an entire suit would just be going
overboard. That’s when a blend of the two will work best. You can wear jeans
and a dress shirt (tucked in or out), and throw a suit jacket or blazer on top.
That will give you a classy yet relaxed look, the kind where you run a company,
but you have an Xbox in the office. For a ‘preppier’ look, switch the jeans up
for khakis, and find a pair of leather loafers.

For Women:

While men have the simplicity of being able to throw on a suit and tie and being ready within
minutes, women have a huge variety of clothes that they can choose from when
going to a dinner party.

Starting from the classy. For that really formal dinner party, your best choice may be to go
simple. A black dress and heels is the closest equivalent that you have to a suit
and tie, and can be adorned with different variations of jewellery and accessories.
If the dress seems way too classy, switch it up for a black skirt, with a dark
top to match.

For the more casual dinner party, you can always go with a basic cocktail dress.
These dresses come in a variety of classiness and chicness, with some being as
simple as a summer dress. In fact, your cocktail dress may look almost
identical to your black-tie dress, but in a lighter set of colours. Colouring
is very important for dresses, because it can determine your level of

For the in-between, your options are almost endless. You can go with jeans and a nice top, a skirt
and top, or even khakis and a button up.

Ultimately, make sure to dress to impress, and to be comfortable in whatever you wear. And if you’re still having trouble deciding, just close your eyes, reach your hand in your closet, and let fate choose for you!
