    What to wear?

    Advertisements
    I have NO IDEA what to wear to DB's Army Christmas party! I asked him if it was casual or dressy and he said just casual.. but I have a feeling he really has no idea I don't want to be the only one wearing just nice pants and a cute top, but I don't want to be the only one wearing a dress either. He got his drill letter yesterday and it didn't say anything about it



    so the party is TONIGHT!
    i have to leave in about an hour and a half and i'm still not 100% sure what i'm going to wear

    i'm thinking either dark nice jeans with a white long sleeve shirt and this black pea coat type thing and a green necklace & earings

    or

    the same thing but with grey nicer pants
    idk if it'll all look to dark if i wear the grey pants with the black coat

    DH said his was casual as well.... but we went and everyone was wear semi-formal attire!
    Thank goodness I wore a cute dress and had DH wear slacks.

    I think you'd be safe with Semi-formal

    (we already had our party last month, since DH's squadron was deploying)

    Most Christmas parties I went too I work nice slacks and a dressy blouse. They were all business dress up to semi-formal.

    maybe i'll plan on wearing nice pants & a dressy top, but put a dress in my car I'll have to drive about an hour, so I'll have to text DB and ask him what other girls are wearing.

    But then how long should my dress be? I only have like one dress and it's mid-thigh-ish..

    ahh i'm thinking too far into this!

    If your dress is mid thigh I would look into getting a new dress if you think there is a chance the party might be semi-formal or even cocktail attire.

    At least no shorter than one inch above your knees in those two instances. Although with semi-formal you can go longer.

    I'd go with the grey pants, particularly if you don't know if it's casual or not. Slacks are middle of the road, so you won't stick out like a sore thumb.

    It obviously depends on the shade of grey, but it shouldn't be too dark. And it's not like you're going to be wearing the pea coat the entire party, so I wouldn't worry about it.
