I have been invited to the 50th birthday party of a very wealthy man in San Francisco. The party will be indoor/outdoor. The dress is said to be “casual” (Hawaiian theme, but we don’t need to dress ‘Hawaiian’). She said nice jeans are fine for both men & women? Time is 4-8pm. The weather is 69-70 degrees & partly cloudy. I was told to ‘bring layers’ in case it gets chilly. What would you suggest for both my boyfriend & I to wear???? Help!

The dress code for the birthday party is more about the quality of the clothing than the dressiness of the outfit. Wear your favorite outfits. That combo that is not dressy, the outfits you save for a special day that express your individual styles. The contradiction here is the tropical Hawaiian shirt in a climate that is not tropical. Wear a beautiful blouse with a nice soft sweater and a short skirt or slacks, or a maxi cocktail dress with a thin wrap sweater. Your boyfriend would wear a collared shirt, jacket and favorite trousers and shoes.
