What is Dressy Casual Attire? [Decoding Dress Codes]

It’s still casual, just a bit dressy, but really not too dressy” was what my friend said when I asked her what dressy casual attire means. I didn’t get much from her answer; in fact, I was just as confused as ever. Following the dress code as stated in the invitation is a must. It not only shows our respect for the one throwing the party or organizing the event, but it also reflects our regard to etiquette. Dress codes guide us in what to wear and what not to wear during an important event or occasion. They ensure us that we will neither be overdressed nor underdressed, hence saving us from any embarrassment.
