 I would go with a modest dress (either long sleeved or with a cardigan over) and understated heels.

Mad-men-esque attire would do well there. Or a “sunday best” type of thing. Basically, if a royal would wear it to an offical function, you’d be safe.

You could easily get away with “business casual” a skirt and cardigan or sweater or long sleeved blouse,  nothing too short, too risque or revealing.


@crayfish:– Agree mad-man is a perfect description.. Conservatively feminine.

I’d go with a knee-length pencil skirt and a pretty long-sleeved blouse or cardigan.

Think of something you can wear to church, stylish and yet modest and understated
