A dressy casual dress code is the middle way between casual and slightly formal and is at the top of the list for weddings of more contemporary couples. This is an opportunity to show off your personal style and have fun with your look. Consider adding interesting patterns, mixing textures, and combining casual pieces with sleeker ones. Opt for a hero piece like a relaxed blazer or a shirt to keep your outfit on the laidback yet dressy side.
Does the invite say cocktail? In that case, a semi-formal look it is. There aren’t many rules to follow, but adding some polished and formal touches is required. A suit or sleek blazer and pant combo is your best option here and you can play with lighter colors like beige, light blue, or grey. A tie is optional but is always a fun way to add some color or pattern to your look and to consider.
