What the heck did she mean by smart casual, semi-formal attire with optional black tie accessories anyways? This style guide will help you determine what to wear when a certain dress code is requested. It's just a matter of mastering some simple dos and don'ts.

Dress codes aren't just rules from those mean people at elementary schools who didn't want you to wear spaghetti straps and miniskirts in third grade. They actually carry into adulthood with all new rules and regulations about the right kind of dress to wear uptown versus downtown, to a wedding versus a cocktail party, to your first job and then your tenth job that's suddenly way more lax.

In the latter, you might find yourself questioning, "How casual is too casual?" To make interpreting these rules a little easier, here's a dress code guide to some commonly called for dressing requests. Welcome to a world where casual isn't just casual and formal isn't just formal.
