Hi there,

I have to attend a dinner and talk on Thursday and the dresscode is apparently 'jacket and tie'. I really don't go to formal things very often so basically don't have a clue what I should wear. Any ideas as to how formal I'm meant to be would be really appreciated smile

Jacket and tie I would interpret as smart casual for a woman. So dress and jacket, or trousers, smart top and jacket. Dress up a bit with jewellry and you can get away with a lot.
