Dress Code

Assalammualaikum & good day everyone!
Happy tuesday ! Its sunny outside..good weather I must say and I hope the lovely weather continues.The federal capital and several parts of the country were blanketed by haze which blew in from Sumatra since last Saturday especially in Klang valley..and thank god its improving a little today..alhamdulillah ~

this week thought I would share and introduce u all on dress code..well we may refer & learn more about dress code below in order to implement the proper etiquette,house rules and morals.

Smart Casual/business casual/semi-formal:

Appropriate dress code for a wedding at any time if stated on the invitation. Men wear a suit with a white or pastel coloured shirt. A tie is optional. A tailored jacket and tailored pants will pass, but not jeans please ! As for women wear dresses or pants, with or without sparkling accessories depending on the time of day,and yes, smart casual is my dress code for every Friday in office (me prefer jeans + blouse + cardigan)..

feel free to interpret smart casual...and if you're working on weekends you can proceed with this kinda outfit.

Black tie: 

Black tie is a dress code for evening events and social functions derived from Anglo-American costume conventions of the 19th century. Worn only for events after 6 p.m. black tie is less formal than white tie but more formal than informal or business dress. It is also more formal than recent intermediate codes of “creative,” “alternate” or “optional” black tie -(wikipedia)
Otherwise it can also be worn after 4.30pm. Men are to wear a black dinner suit with white shirt and black bow tie. Women wear formal dinner dresses, long or short.

Morning suit:

In Britain the morning suit is a less formal version of morning dress appropriate for races and summer weddings.  This suit differs from formal morning dress only in that the cutaway, trousers and waistcoat are constructed from the same light material. The term is often used as a synonym for morning dress although technically this is incorrect as only a jacket and trouser of matching fabric are by definition a "suit".  (The word is derived from the French suite which means “to follow” as in the trouser fabric following the precedent of the coat fabric.

Worn before 4.30pm. Men wear a black or grey suit with a white shirt. Women wear a nice dress or smart suit. This is a good option for a very formal day wedding.
Generally, morning suits is meant for formal affairs held in the morning or afternoon.  Special considerations for weddings that begin in the afternoon and continue into the evening.
The morning suit is not worn in countries outside of the UK

Lounge suit:

A popular choice for less formal weddings and can be considered the appropriate dress code at any time, day or night. Dark suit and tie for men. The girls can wear a dress or smart suit, or even a cocktail dress if the wedding is held in the afternoon or early evening.

White tie: 

Worn after 6pm. This is ultimate in glamour and formality. Men wear full black tail coat and black trousers, white shirt, white waistcoat and white bow tie. Women wear full length evening dresses.Traditionally, white-tie events were known as formal events and black-tie events were simply semi-formal.


Worn after 5pm. Men are required to wear a suit (preferably dark) and tie. Women wear pretty dresses with all the sparkling accessories they chose.


Men wear blazers or tailored sports jackets with tailored trousers optional - never jeans. Women dress as if they are going out to a nice restaurant.

Other dress codes can be more specific or even hint at your theme: 
Garden party attire, 
bare foot and black tie (great for beach weddings), 
Indian summer.

well I hope u enjoy and lets dress up people!
