Hi everyone,
I was recently invited to a party with the dress code being "upscale cocktail attire". As this is my first real cocktail party(I'm 18), I'm not exactly sure what this means. Could you guys give me a little help as to what I should wear?

Thanks,
Stephen

So do you think that I could get away with a blazer, nice button down, and khaki's? I have a limited wardrobe since I'm at college.

I think you would be fine in that? Where is the party being held?

It's a premiere party for a TV show that was taped at the location.

If you can run to marshalls or the like and pick up a cheap pair of slacks. If not khakis and a blazer are a classic look. ENjoy!!!!!!!!

what color is your blazer?
navy blue.


I was planning on wearing khaki's, a nice belt, loafers(with dark blue/black socks), a light blue button down(with a nice tie), and the blazer. does that sound acceptable? or do you all think that is too casual?

khakis and a blazer is going to make you look like a frat dude at rush. buy some slacks (dark grey preferably).

AGreed Dark grey slacks would be great. Aim for flat front, no cuff. Usually Calvin Klein or Ralph Lauren Chaps are at the Marshalls/Ross stores for cheap!

I think that's dressy enough, maybe a nice solid colour sweater over your shirt. How dressy can a college party be...

Like Duke said, the khaki's are just going to make you look like a pledge. Definitely go and pick up some slacks. I remember my first semester in college, I had to run out and pick up new clothes for almost every big party. I would usually stretch it a bit, pick up some nicer stuff, and just eat ramen for a few days :D

Well the thing is, it's not a college party. This party has no association to my school. It's a premiere party for an MTV show.

In regards to sweaters, I have a few nice solid color v-necks I could use as well.

In that case, you definitely need to step up you're game.

Run pick and some navy slacks and something like a gunmetal button down. Add your navy sportcoat and you're good to go.

Make sure your slacks fit correctly length wise as well.....

Nothing worse then someone dressing up only to not notice that his pants are too long. Kills the look instantly.
