    Default Dress codes.....

    Hi all, been invited to a function....dress code is semi casual....
    Now I'm a basic dresser. I usually wear a nice skirt and top or pants & top.
    My dresses are extremely casual.
    Been told not to wear black and not a skirt that I have already.
    I did suggest not to attend the function.

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    I'd go a nice maxi dress and some blingy sandals.

    Semi casual is not a traditional dress code! Sounds a bit confused to me!
    I would avoid denim.
    Separates are fine - skirt and top (I'd aim for knee length or there abouts unless you're wearing a more casual maxi style) or pants and top.
    Whatever you feel comfortable in really.
    Why can't you wear a skirt you already have?

    Cause I've been told not too and I really don't want to go shopping for new clothes as I will only wear it on this occasion. *sighs*

    My skirts are knee high. Dresses I don't have many as I just lost a big amount of weight. So the ones I have a little loose.

    It is confusing

    How does the person (a) know what all your skirts look like and (b) have the right to tell you you can't wear one you already own? How bizarre.

    I assume semi casual must mean smart casual, in which case a nice top with a skirt or pants is acceptable attire.

    Who is telling you that you can't wear a skirt you already have? Seems like a strange demand.

    Husband?

    There's a lot of resources for this sort of thing online if you Google, with lots of pictures, if that helps

    That's pretty rude of whoever invited you IMO. Anything further than offering a dress code is a bit precious.
    What would this host prefer? You attend in whatever clothes make you feel good or you don't attend at all?
    Tbh I'd be inclined to decline the invitation.

    I'm intrigued as to what type of function this is, where someone cares so much about your skirts. So strange! Why are you singled out??

    Has the invitee told you not to wear a skirt you already have or your DH?
