What do I wear? I told my husband what I planning to wear - smart black skinny jeans and a nice sleeveless top. He laughed at me.

It sounds like a 'suity' event and my husband said he expects the women will be wearing dresses. I will be spending a rare day in London away from the children and want to wear something comfortable. We've been told to wear comfy shoes.

I'm now thinking something along these lines:,en_GB,pd.html?dwvar_730075D_color=05500&dwvar_730075D_size=6&start=7&cgid=brands-boutique-women-trousers

Does that seem suitable?

I know this is a bit pathetic but I really don't get out much!

I'm dead jealous of you! I've been a couple of times, and its great fun.

Wear whatever you like - chances are, you'll be wearing a coat over the top as it won't be that warm.

A few people wear lovely flowery coats which look great. Its not Ascot, though - no need for serious dresses...

Enjoy the evening!

I should think it might be a bit more dressy TBH.
If you want to wear trousers I would really accessorize big time - nice jacket, corsage, hat?

Thank you!

I've got a day shopping beforehand - the joy! I am quite keen on trousers and know I would wear them again so I'll look for accessories to jazz the outfit up a bit
