I’m confused by what you’re looking for. She doesn’t want to wear a dress *or* a pant suit? So what kind of clothing ideas are you looking for? Skirts? Shorts? Jumpers? No pants at all?

I don’t think there is anything butch about a BM wearing a nicely tailored suit to a wedding though – you don’t have to identify as a man to wear a pant suit!

Would she be more comfortable in a palazzo pant and dressy blouse?

sarah.masters:  I’m a big fan of a nicely tailored pant suit with a nice blouse under the jacket (no tie):

but there are even less traditional options out there: 

What would she wear to an important work function?

I think a  plain, sleek, bodycon dress in grey (especially an ankle/floor length dress) would be suitable for a tomboy.  No ruffles, no frills, no lace, no pink, no purple, no chiffon, no jewelry just dreadlocks- it would be decidedly feminine without being sweet or girly.  And maybe a sleek clutch instead of a bouquet of flowers.  It would also be less sweaty than wearing a shirt and a suit jacket.
