Dressing for the Occasion: Your 60 Second Visual Guide

Black Tie Optional | Semi-Formal | Business Casual | Casual

This illustrated guide made possible by Life Khaki by Haggar – Talking Men’s style. What’s this?

We’ve been talking a lot about hosting a holiday party lately, but what if you’re invited to one as a guest? It can be confusing trying to decipher the stated dress code. “Black tie” is easy: wear a tux. But what about those other categories? Well, last week we brought you a quick visual guide to dressing for an interview, and this week we offer some general guidelines for how to dress for an event at a glance. (We didn’t do “Cocktail” because the expected dress for that designation can vary so widely depending on time of day and level of formality of the event.)
