Fashion Friday: Translate Tricky Dress Codes

8:30 AM

Happy Friday Y'all!  We'd like to introduce you to Shannon from Prep Avenue! She's a freshman in college attending Furman University in sunny South Carolina (not too far from our production facility)! She's writes an adorable blog, so you need to follow along!  We hope you enjoy her first one here on the Monogrammed Life!  Be sure to check out her full bio on our Meet the Bloggers Page!  Enjoy!

Dress codes can be tricky. You don’t want to be overdressed for an event, but you 
definitely don’t want to be under-dressed either.

I saw this picture the other day on pinterest and it seemed way to relevant. With sorority and fraternity functions and formals taking up basically every weekend here on campus, and prom season (post coming soon!) right around the corner I feel like everyone is in a dress craze right now.


My good friend K (the one who curled my hair so pretty!) got asked to a fraternity function a few days ago and we were told that the dress code was “cocktail”. As we scoured the Internet for the “perfect” cocktail attire dress I thought it would be perfect to differentiate between all the dress codes!


Black Tie Optional [ dress | necklace | clutch | pump]
Cocktail Attire [ dress | bangle | pump]
Business Casual [ dress | bag | necklace | pump ]
Garden Party [ dress | necklace | wedge]
Nothing Nada [ dress | sunnies | wedge]

What are some of your favorite dresses right now?
