An afternoon retirement tea is sooooo civilized and a great way to celebrate a retirement. Since it is not going to be a fancy event, separates, (pants and top or skirt and top), should be appropriate. Be sure to choose styles that flatter you whether you wear pants or a skirt.

Party Dress Codes
It is almost always exciting and fun when a party invitation arrives. However sooner or later we have to start to think about what we will wear. When types of “dress codes” are indicated such as “smart casual”, “semi-formal,” “vineyard casual”, “festive”, “cocktail chic” or etc. it can throw us for a loop. Where should one begin to figure out what any of these types of dress codes mean?
Finishing Touches: Belts
No matter what time of the year belts are a popular accessory and are a way to define your waistline. You can belt a suit, coat, or dress for a new and /or put together look. Belts with interesting buckles are another way to add some style to your clothing. They are a way to give a basic outfit like a LBD (little black dress) different personalities or an updated look. For example a snakeskin, leopard print or a metallic belt can give your LBD three different looks.
