What to dress to a Dinner Party

Continuing from my previous post, ‘Hosting a Beautiful & Cheap Dinner Party’ and as promised, here’s some suggestions on what to wear as a host/ hostess or a guest to a dinner party. (Or really, any special occasion)

Note: All the dresses are from ASOS and all the men’s shirts and pants are from J Crew.

Guys

It works both ways, for the host or the guest, you’d want it to be casual and relaxing, so  a nice collared shirt and casual pants will do, such as the ones below
