For daytime weddings, lean towards the casual side and don’t go near those embellished and sequined types.

A cocktail dress or something that will is suited to wear for evening. Occasion # 2 – Cocktail Party Cocktail dresses are the most common. They are the dressy-casual type. Don’t go for fabrics that are way too casual like denim, jersey and chino. Occasion # 3 – Baptism For a baptism, wear a little bit of color. Try out a colorful suit or a nice dress. Nothing too flashy. Occasion # 4 – Night on the Town Some would think that looking for the perfect night out dress is simple. It is, when you know your body. Pick one body part that you would want to accentuate. Occasion # 5 – Dinner Party Don’t overdress because you’ll make the dinner host feel insufficient, apprehensive, and even uneasy. It’s a good idea to always ask the host for advice. Occasion # 6 – Job Interview It’s one of the most important days in a person’s life because that s the time the person will make the best first impression possible. A suit is standard when it comes to interviews, you can never go wrong with a suit. But if you don’t have a suit, you can always choose something business formal for alternatives. It usually depends on the field you’re applying in. When in doubt, you could always call the HR executive and ask if what kind of outfit is appropriate. Occasion # 7 – Meeting THE PARENTS Don’t look like a school librarian when you want to make a good impression, also, don’t show too much cleavage, and wear sky high heels or something extreme. Opt for a simple dress in a pretty pattern. Occasion # 8 – Company Party Keep things professional but still in line with the event. If it’s a conservative environment, dress conservatively. No matter how casual and laid-back or relaxed your office environment is, never wear anything provocative or anything too revealing. You want to be taken seriously. Occasion # 9 – First Date It’s pretty tricky – you want to look great without trying too hard. Just think of comfort. It’s important as well. Occasion # 10 – Funeral Though you’re outfit doesn’t need to be in black, it just needs to be respectful. You can try dark neutrals if you don’t want to wear black. Nothing bright like neon, yellow, orange and other flashy objects. It’s not the time to wear anything festive or fun unless you were asked to otherwise. Occasion # 11 – Night at the Theater, Ballet or Opera Back then, people used to dress to the nines for evenings out. Now, people can go to Broadway and wear a loose pair of jeans and tank tops. Just because you can be casual, doesn’t mean you should be. If you paid for a huge amount of sum to watch the show, why not dress up for it as well? You don’t have to wear anything like a formal long gown; you can wear a cocktail dress or a sophisticated suit.
