What is Dressy Casual?

12:42 AM


So I was invited to attend an event this upcoming weekend and the dress code calls for "dressy casual" attire. What exactly is dressy casual?

Dressy casual is very similar to business casual, but slightly dressier/less informal.

What Not to Wear
Jeans
Tennis shoes
Sandals
Tight or short skirts
Hats or caps
T-shirts
Sweatshirts
Showy logos and slogans

Do Consider
Time, location, and weather

Women
Cocktail length dresses
Dressy top with a skirt
Dressy pant outfit
Accessorizing with jewelry is a must to complete a dressy casual look.

Men
Sport coat or blazer with khakis
Open-collar shirt
No tie

The event starts at 6pm. I live in Florida. So I'm considering a white button down dress with red square-tip heels, and white gold jewelry pieces.

  1. My friend and I always call dressy casual "snappy caz." Caz is the shortened form of casual. Did you do the illustration? Very cool.
