Check it out! 👗🧥 repost• Wedding season is upon us, and that can only mean one thing: a deluge of ornate envelopes inviting us to celebrate the marriages of our nearest and dearest. But from “wine country casual” to “black tie optional” to “semiformal,” understanding what the dress code means can be a challenge.

In class-mobile America, dress codes can be a powerful act of democracy: With clear guidelines, anyone can appear to belong to the in-group. Anyone can look up what “black tie” means and understand exactly what’s expected of them wardrobe-wise. But dress codes can also be a powerful act of exclusion. “Dressy casual” can mean something very specific to a particular group of people and another thing entirely to everyone outside of it. That’s why it can be incredibly stressful to get an invitation to a party with a dress code you don’t understand or don’t think you can follow.

Swipe through the gallery above for an illustrated guide to common dress codes, and head to the link in bio to read about the history behind wedding attire.
