Engagement Party Dress Code Festive Fête
I am invited to an evening engagement fete. The invitation says festive cocktail attire. What does this mean regarding long or short dresses?

When the invitation does not specify 'Black Tie', then you can assume the dress code is 'Suits & Dresses', or cocktail attire. 'Festive Attire' as a dress code is the same as 'Suits & Dresses,' although you would add a pop of color or glitzy jewelry, with beautiful shoes and carry a small clutch bag. Wear a short party dress.
