This is an informal dress style, so almost anything goes. (If it is decent enough). Jeans doesn't belong here. A dress is okay, with boots are pumps. Combine a skirt or pants with an elegant blouse or sweater. T-shirt are only allowed worn under a blazer. No big logo's or writings on your clothing. And what about the men? Cotton pants, shirt and blazer are okay, no need for a tie.

This is a formal dress code for during the day. You can choose a formal dress (kneelength) or a pantsuit. Combine the pantsuit with a blouse, but you can also wear a top. Always wear panties with the dress. You can wear a hat. Pumps or elegant flats are okay. Pair your handbag with your dress or pantsuit. And what about him? A dark tailored suit, with a plain shirt, tie, dark soks and black shoes.
