What Should I Wear to Dinner Tomorrow Night?

Steven Robinson


I'm going out to dinner tomorrow night and I haven't a clue what to wear! It's supposed to be a semi-formal occasion. I don't have a lot of money to spend on something fancy, but I want to look my best. What should I wear?

Going out to dinner tomorrow night can be a challenging task when it comes to dressing appropriately for the occasion. While you may not have a lot of money on hand to spend on designer clothing, you can still look your best with the right ensemble. Start by figuring out the basic rules for semi-formal attire that will steer your choices.

First, decide on whether you want to go for a classic and sophisticated look, or something a bit more fun and sassy. If you want to go for something timeless, solid colored dress, dressy separates in neutral shades, or a tailored pant and blouse combo is always a safe choice. Go for something simple but elevated, such as a high-necked blouse, cutaway trousers, or sleek sheath dress. Accessorize with statement jewelry, or even a vintage piece, to give it that extra bit of polish.

If you're looking for something a little more playful and edgy, mix it up with unexpected silhouettes. Try a jumpsuit with stylish cut-outs, an above the knee dress in floral or print, or a tailored jacket with contemporary detailing. Experiment with volume, texture, and prints in fun yet appropriate combinations. Revive an old skirt set with a new top, or elegantly transform an everyday pair of trousers with a ruffled blouse. Make sure you pair it with jewelry and accessories that match the aesthetic. For example, pair a ladylike dress with dainty earrings and a string of pearls, or go for bold statement jewelry with an edgy ensemble.

No matter what route you take, you'll want to dress appropriately for this semi-formal occasion. Keep fabric luxurious, but avoid anything too slinky. Stripes, plaids, and tweeds tend to be too casual for a semi-formal event, so lean towards solids and flattering prints. If you do opt for animal prints, stay away from anything that looks too costume-y. Keep hemlines at mid-thigh or below, and ensure that your bottom half is well-covered if you pick a sleeveless top or dress. take into consideration the type of shoes you'll wear. Heels add that extra bit of drama and sophistication, but there's no shame in wearing flats if heels aren't your thing.

No matter what you choose to wear, remember that confidence is key. When you look and feel your best, you'll be sure to make a great impression.
