20-40-60 Etiquette: Deciphering party dress codes
GUEST'S ANSWER: Linda Miller, author of Fashion Matters Blog: Sometimes hosts try to get too creative. Urban casual and elegant casual always leave me wondering. Guests don't want cute terms; they want to know how to dress without guessing.
Is there a look that covers all bases? Not really, but I think a dress comes pretty close. Depending on the color, print and style, it can be dressed up with evening shoes and statement jewelry for a semiformal event or worn with sandals and a straw hat to a beach party.
Callie Gordon is twenty-something, Lillie-Beth Brinkman is in her 40s, and social columnist Helen Ford Wallace is 60-plus. You'll also find a guest answer. To ask an etiquette question, email email@example.com. For more 20-40-60 etiquette, go to blog.newsok.com/partiesextra.
