Attending a July 4th evening dinner and party that will culminate in a viewing of the DC fireworks with various government VIP’s. Because my connection is through a client the invite is second-hand and not sure what to wear. He simply said, “you need to dress up” and then “I will get you more details.” So I am in an information vacuum but anticipate most people will be in conservative dress and men will be in really classy casual dress. No khakis and Tommy Bahama garb. What do I wear?? A navy blue jacket over light gray trousers? A dark cotton suit with no tie? On one hand I have to be ready to meet highest level of government, on the other hand I don’t want to be the overdressed guy at the party. I was thinking white pants, navy jacket and loafers.
