I just found some of the cutest little flouncy type dresses on clearance at the Dress Barn...I couldn't pass them up at the price. Will these be ok on the non formal nights? They are kinda sundressy, very feminine dresses.
I feel the longer cropped pants in the nicer materials are fine for casual dinners-but just like you really should not wear even "nice" jeans to dinner-even Carnival despite what many post-you should also not wear the clam digger/pedal pusher length of capris to dinner.
Most people know the differance-if they look more like for picnic wear then don't wear them to dinner.
Also, even if they are in a "nicer" material-sometimes taller women buy what was really meant for average height or petite women. When they hit just barely covering the knees-even in linen or silk materials-they are not proper for casual night.
good point momofmeg! If its something that you would wear to the company picnic, the family or neighboors bbg then its really a bit too casual for nightime wear in the dining rooms.
Most of the cruise lines specify resort casual wear in their dress codes. Resort Casual is quite different than just plain ole casual.
