    never understood when restaurants and such said they had a ‘dressy casual’ atmosphere. like, its either one or the other.  in my world anyways. 😛

  • Wear a dressy top and a casual bottom?

    The phrase Dressy Casual exists to fill a certain need. It exists to describe something that is not at either extreme of either Dressy or Casual, but rather to describe something that is a happy medium.

    Dressy Casual? Never heard of it before today. I’ve heard of Casually Dressed or Dress(ed) Casually, but never Dressy Casual. Maybe it’s a regional thing.
