@KatNYC2011:  You could always call the restuarant and see what attire people usually wear and then go from there. Smile Good luck!

I would probably do a black wrap dress, tights, boots and fun jewellery.

I have also done dark skinny jeans with heels, a fun top, cool jewellery and a boyfriend and still felt dressy enough.

Never underestimate the power of a little black dress.  I have a knee length Ann Taylor cowl neck dress that is my go-to for nice dinners out.  Pair with a brightly colored scarf, pumps, and a pea coat and have fun!

I think you’d be fine with really dark jeans and a cute top/sweater and killer boots/shoes

I don’t think it will be too cold to wear a nice but not too formal dress, with a pair of pantyhose. Just pair it with a warm peacoat, and a clutch and you’ll be good to go.

What field is your Darling Husband in?  Will your Darling Husband and his boss be coming directly from the office?  That would influence what I would wear.  If they will be in business attire, I would wear a LBD possibly paired with a jacket or a pantsuit with a brightly colored top underneath.

okay so no dress, no jeans.   Dress pants?

Black pants, and a cute top?  You’ll look fabulous in whatever you choose! 🙂 Good luck with the dinner!

What about a cute dress, leggings, and boots?

Personally, I’d wear thick black leggings and a nice dress dark coloured but not black, smart coat and some understated jewellry.  With flat boots. And a long winter coat and scarf.

But, if that’s out I always think a lighter coloured trouser/pant looks less “work-wear” than black.  Match it with a nice bright blouse (not too formal or you’ll be in the work wear catorgory again).
