I think that you should be okay in a solid-colored (gray/black/navy) pencil skirt and a nice blouse or sweater, or a pair of gray or black slacks with a nice top.

@Leprechaun: agreed. you could always buy a blazer that is the same color as the pants you wear, or something like that if you feel the need to be a little dressier

I agree with PP.  Business attire doesn’t always mean a suit.  If I got that invite and didn’t want to wear a suit I would wear dark slacks, a blouse and a cardigan.

Business attire is pretty open and suits are not always necessary.  Dresses and skirts that come to (at a minimum) a few inches above the knee (nothing short, you should be able to sit in it comfortably), slacks, blouses, cardigans/sweaters, etc. are all acceptable.  Make sure your clothes fit well (not too tight, no excessive cleavage, etc.), and are clean and unwrinkled.  (Sounds silly and should be common sense, but I see it all the time.)  Basically nothing you would wear to a club/bar, gym, or lounging around the house.  Make sure your shoes and handbag are professional as well. And make sure you can comfortably walk and stand for an extended period of time in your shoes.  Good luck!

A dress is fine, but not a frilly, flouncy girly dress.  Something classic and preferably solid colored or with a hardly noticable print.

I would wear a blazer and pants or dress shirt and pants. But then I dont wear skirts to work
