Invitation says “Festive Holiday Attire”, What is it?

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

It is always helpful when a host prints the expected mode of dress on the invitation, but with holiday invitations stating “Festive Holiday Attire” and “Holiday Chic” it’s not always easy to decipher exactly what that means.

Some invitation clues can help you decide what type of dress is expected.

  • What’s the occasion?
  • What time of day is the party?
  • What’s the location?
  • How many guests?
  • Is it an evening cocktail party at a five-star hotel or drinks and appetizers at your neighbor’s home?
  • Is it formal or informal?

Women's Festive Holiday Attire Dress Code

If an invitation states “Festive Holiday Attire”, here are some guidelines:

For Women:

Add a bit of holiday color and sparkle or beading to your outfit.

Nice black pants or simple black skirt with a red silk blouse or cashmere sweater or sweater set, nice dressy flats or pull out chic pumps. No out-of-season shoes, totally out-of-style, over worn or dated shoes – hear Jimmy Choo calling you and go shopping, it’s a party you’re going to!

Use the time of the party to guide you as to how dressed-up or dressed down you should be.

No chipped or dirty nails, go bare and buffed nails if time doesn’t permit new polish.

No overdone makeup, hair accessories or jewelry (nothing that clinks). (Dress from Boston Proper)

Men's Festive Holiday Attire Dress CodeFor Men:

Add some holiday color to your shirt – a deep burgundy or dark forest green, nice dark dress pants (usually stay away from khakis or light colors).

It’s a party, wear something besides jeans, but dark well-pressed perfect jeans if you think they are appropriate.

Nice leather shoes, no thick rubber soled clunkers – think GQ, and dark socks (cover the calf), Men's Festive Holiday Attire Shirtmaybe red or green holiday pattern depending on the time and location of the party.

For evening and for warmth, wear a nice sport coat and leave the large cable knit sweaters in your closet. (Entire look from Men’s Wearhouse – wear burgundy shirt instead of white shown for a holiday touch.)

Fashion Faux Pas:

Always make sure your clothes are clean and pressed – no worn, frayed, faded or stains anywhere.

No missing buttons, unraveling anywhere or broken zippers.

Make sure you are comfortable – ladies, can you sit down, bend over, reach for the appetizers without a wardrobe malfunction?

Nothing too slinky or sexy, no straps or underwear showing, you might have to see these people at work on Monday.

Green Beer on Plaid St. Patrick’s Day Party Invitations

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

If green beer is a must for you on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s easy to do at home or for your party. Just a drop of green food coloring in the glass or mug before you pour the beer, will result in a fun green concoction everyone will enjoy. For the greenest beer, you’ll need a light colored brew. A dark or stout beer may produce green foam, but it will be hard to tell it’s green when the foam is gone.

A pint of green beer on a green plaid background is a fun way to invite guests to your St. Patrick's Day party. Come see our entire collection of St. Patrick's Day Invitations at Announcingit.com

Our Green Beer on Plaid St. Patrick’s Day Party Invitations is the perfect invitation to invite guests for green beer and malarkey at your St. Patrick’s Day party.
