‘Dinner Dressy-Casual’: The Kind Of Clothes That Get The Most Wear

When it comes to ‘going-out’ clothes, the kind that I tend to wear the most (and I suspect many of you as well)  is ‘Dinner Dressy-Casual’ wear. Let’s face it, the chances of most of us going out to dinner with family, friends or colleagues far exceed the chances of an invitation to a destination wedding or a ball. Going out for a meal is a pleasurable social activity and most of us want to look like we made an effort to put our best foot forward. At the same time, we don’t want to be overdressed and stand out like a sore thumb. You don’t want to hear your friends say that when we said we were going to Windsor for dinner, we didn’t mean Windsor castle!

I am a huge fan of peplums and I love the look of this peplum top that I purchased recently (on sale which makes it even lovelier). This bag is one of my favorite clutch bags ever – it has a certain ‘edginess’ to it that I adore and I often find myself reaching for this one over others.  Of course, adding a nice pair of heels to a ‘Dinner Dressy-Casual’ outfit is always a great touch! Last but not least, I am a realist and living in London means always carrying a warm piece of clothing with me, even in the summer! This long-line woollen cardigan is right up my alley – it is chic, warm and a great alternative to carrying a coat. These clothes are a great example of a ‘Dinner Dressy-Casual’ outfit that I have worn recently and will definitely wear again.

I hope that everyone has a lovely weekend filled with many nice meals,  and thank you so much for visiting my blog!

  1. This is often a look that I struggle with… “Am I dressed enough or am I underdressed?” … You pulled it off well with the cardigan, a great transition piece that allows you to to adjust on the fly!
