I’m attending my boyfriends firmwide party in a few weekends and it’s at an outdoor venue. He isn’t super clear on dress code (he says casual but I’m taking that with a grain of salt 😂) I looked up the venue and the only photos coming up are weddings- any thoughts on appropriate attire or appropriate outfit ideas?

Long summer dress is a safe bet. With short sleeves or a jean jacket handy

I was thinking the same, thank you!

Can you provide any more details on the type of firm, time of the event, and any info/clues you have? A firm party could be anything from a summer BBQ to a formal cocktail event, but knowing the title on the invites, start time etc can help. If you know any of his female coworkers you should also ask them. That’s definitely what I’ve done in the past when dating men who were clueless about women’s fashion/dress code lingo 😂

Great thoughts & I have some the of the same questions 😂, it’s MBB, he’s not sure of the activities but it seems like more of a summer BBQ- just at a more formal venue. I’d rather play it safe and dress up rather than wear Jean shorts and a blouse like he told me to 🤦🏼‍♀️
