I would wear a cute dress and heels, with a cardigan.  Nothing too fancy, maybe something similar to what you would wear to an office job.

I’d go dressy casual – anything more than that and I think you’d look overdressed for the Cheesecake Factory.  It really isn’t a fancy place so I’m sure no one you are going with will be very dressed up.

ETA: I’d probably do something nicer than jeans though.  Like dress slacks and a sweater/blouse.  IMO, a dress really wouldn’t be necessary although you could go that route as well.

Yep a simple black dress, knee length, with a cardi and reasonable heels?

What does your Fiance wear to work?

I would do a dress, cardi, and I typically wear boots rather than heels when I’m trying to dress the outfit down, rather than up.  But I agree with hilsy85 – maybe going off of what your Fiance wears wouldn’t be such a bad idea.  Will they all be coming straight from work if its Friday?

@cherrycoke: I think that outfit would be perfect! Do you have a picture?

Adorable outfit.  Go with it.  I highly doubt his coworkers are showing up in tuxes 🙂

I’d totally wear that outfit since it’s a casual dinner & it’s just the Cheesecake Factory.
