What do you wear to a cocktail reception?

I have been invited to a Christmas cocktail reception and have no idea what I should wear.


Answer by  Sheila (147)

I would wear something that is classy and not too revealing. Typically modest dresses are considered appropriate cocktail clothing. Also bright colored clothing is usually not desirable. A black dress is perfect, think of Julia Roberts in pretty woman after her transformation. Pretty jewelry can also finish off the outfit.

Female - You can't go wrong with a Midlength Black Dress or a conservitive pants suit. Male - A Dark suit, or Kahkis, dress shirt and tie. As long as you dress comfortably you should be fine.

The invitation should say formal or informal; opt for a knee-length rather fancy dress, or stay in classic black, but short.

Where is it? A formal reception in a home or hotel, think dressy, but probably not formal. At a beachfront bar, maybe a little more casual.
