Fiance and I are going to a Christmas party at the home of the (very very wealthy) couple who paid for his scholarship this weekend. The invitation calls for “festive attire.” What does that mean?

Something sparkly! 😀
I would guess cocktail attire.

@sunflower22: Hmm I would assume that to mean maybe an ugly Christmas sweater or just a Christmas-y shirt or something?
[Edit] I just gathered they are wealthy…that might mean more formal like a cocktail dress.

@sunflower22: I would assume cocktail dress, probably in the season’s colors. Reds, deep greens, gold etc. Maybe add some christmas jewelry, or a nice brooch!

@sunflower22: Something fancy/colorful/sparkly !
LOL ! As long as the ugly sweater sparkles and is age-appropriate. 😛

I would say colorful or sparkly cocktail attire…. so like regular cocktail attire but not a little black dress.

Lol I am from ND. It’s too fucking cold for a damn cocktail dress, and when someone says “festive” I make sure to go all out. Hand me an ugly Christmas sweater, some gaudy, Santa Claus earrings and a pair of antlers and I am ready to rock any party.

I think you could also do something more simple, such as a little black dress, but dress it up with festive accessories.

wow! That’s an great little guide. I had no idea “festive attire” was a “thing”. booking marking that for future reference….

I love how almost everything is on the internet know. How did we manage without it?

To me it means glitter, sequins and sparkles! And dark, rich, seasonal colours. Dress pants and a beautiful blouse or sweater is acceptable. I always go for a cocktail dress and either sparkly, patterned or opaque hose/tights. But I love dresses, I wear them more often than pants.

Sparkly/shimmery dress in red, gold or dark green. 🙂
