What Does "Country Club Casual" Mean In Dress Code Speak? Don't Just Throw On Some Lilly Pulitzer

June 23, 2010 by Aria Hughes
shefinds | Shop

It’s invitation season, which means confusing dress codes are inevitable. One of the more impossible dress codes mandate is country club casual, which seems to suggest to wear something golf course appropriate. Don’t.  Instead, for a country club casual event during the day, stick to a simple sundress, without loud prints. If it’s an evening party, think conservative cocktail. (No cleavage, no studs, no mini skirts.) Here are two outfits that will help you fit right in:

This Tahari by Arthur S. Levine Mock Two Piece Linen Blend dress ($128) is the perfect option for day. The dress is clean and simple and the embroidered detail at the waist will make you look slimmer.

Since country club casual means dressy, but more conservative, we suggest you bring along this Gap Silk-Trimmed cardigan ($49.50) just in case. This lightweight cardigan has a slim fit, and pretty silk trim makes it more feminine and dressy.

Leave your gladiator sandals at home for a country club casual event, and wear something subtle, yet cute, like these Nine West Women’s Gleamy sandals ($49.50). The cork heel will be comfy for your feet while you’re mingling.

For night, stick with a conservative cocktail dress like this Jessica Howard Ruffle-Neck Shantung dress ($80). The ruffle details at the neck aren’t overpowering, and the ribbon sash cinches in your waist. The A-line shape of the skirt and the pleating details will work for every figure.

Since this dress has a lot of details at the neck, skip a necklace and wear earrings, like these Kenneth Jay Lane Pearl Filigree Drop earrings ($61.60).

Stick with a simple shoe like these Kenneth Cole Reaction Lush Life Sandals ($59.99). The champagne color will go well with your new mocha dress and the embellishment on the shoe is  subtle, not tacky.
