When you get invited out to dinner, there are so many vibes your style and outfit can give off. One of the first things I do when I get invited to a dinner is look up the restaurant and take a look at pictures of the inside and the menu. Why? So I can decide what to wear and what to eat.

Sometimes, I get stuck on what to wear to a casual dinner. Casual dinners are usually reserved for weeknights or weekend evenings with friends or a loved one at a spot where the food and ambiance aren’t too fancy.

However, even if a dinner is described as casual, you don’t want to always show up in jeans and a tee shirt. 

If you have a handful of casual dinners in your social calendar and could use some ideas for what to wear, here are a few!

A casual button-down shirt

I love the look of a nice linen button-down shirt. If you’re lost for what to wear, pairing a camisole or tank top of any color with an open, button-down shirt and jeans or trousers is always a safe option. These are especially great to wear during the springtime when the weather isn’t too hot or cold.

Neutral clothes and statement accessories

Sometimes, when we know we’re going someplace casual, we reach for our go-to neutral clothes like our favorite black turtleneck and solid jeans.

While your neutral pieces are great, you can take them to the next level with statement accessories. If you’re wearing mostly black or beige, spice things up with a red bag or bright-colored shoes.
