    When it comes to dressing for an occasion, the toughest thing to do is figure out what to wear. Black Tie, Cocktail, Business Casual, etc...

     

    Depending on how strict you want to follow  the "dress code", here are a few ideas on what to wear to these types of events:

     

    Casual Occasions:

     

    Casual is easy. It pretty much means to dress as you feel, but be clothed! You're not going to be naked streaking through Glorietta into the gymnasium (if you haven't seen the movie 'Old School', I recommend watching it).

    Normally, you want to choose wearing pants over shorts to an event; although, this could change depending on the time of day of the event, the location (whether it is indoor or outdoors) and, especially, the type of event. 

     


     

    What to wear for a Casual Event:

    If you still don't know what to wear from what I described and the photos above, then comment below and will try my best to help you!  One thing that's very important here... BE YOURSELF! The more you try and be someone else, the less you will enjoy the event.

     

    Good luck and make heads turn!
