Men should wear a dark business suit and women should wear a cocktail dress or dressy separates. Many soiree hosts put information on the party invitation giving direction about how guests should dress.

Men should choose a suit that is navy blue, charcoal gray or black. They should add a conservative tie, leather dress shoes and dark dress socks. Women should choose a knee-length dress that is a solid color. Women who choose to wear dressy separates should choose a knee-length skirt and a solid color business-appropriate blouse. Women should wear shoes with a moderate heel that are a solid color.
