STYLE GUIDELINES: Appropriate Clothing for Any Occasion

September 29 2015 – Laura Wright

 

 

Dressing for an occasion can be a challenge.  While most invitations do not specify the desired attire for an event, it may be nice to include this information so guests are well-informed and well-prepared.  Consider the mood and purpose of the event you are planning, then use the chart below to decide what attire is most appropriate.

This comes straight from the queen of etiquette, Emily Post... and is a great resource for party-planners and party-goers alike.  Enjoy!
