Depending on formality, it’s a matter of would I wear this to an audition?

For me it really depends on the formality of the event. Generally I ask myself if I could wear it to the office or not. If the answer is yes, then I’ll wear it to the wedding. I wouldn’t necessarily wear office attire to a wedding (no suits or pants and tops), but if it’s a dress that I would find appropriate for the office, I’m comfortable wearing it to the wedding. Plus if I can get a dress that I can wear again, then I have an excuse to buy more dresses!

I usually dress pretty nicely but my rule is would I wear on this for a date night?  Meaning no jeans, shorts, t-shirts, tank-tops, etc.  Usually I go with a flowery dress, cocktail dress, or slacks and nice shirt dressed up with nice jewerly.  I never let my undergarments show, EVER, I hate seeing bra straps, it’s just gross.  And when it comes to showing off certain areas of my body, if I can’t wear it infront of my dad I shouldn’t wear it to a wedding.

For me, it’s would I wear this in front of my grandparents and to church (we had to dress up for church).

ETA: This means no visible bra, minimal cleavage, shortest thing is just above the knee. It’s always a dress or a skirt and a blouse. Depending on the formality of the wedding, that dictates the fabric.

I dress according to the same rules as when I attend a colloquium in university (not too much cleavage, elegant and classy). I’m not going to a bar with my single friends, I’m going to attend a special event and need to take it seriously and be respectful of other people’s feelings.
