    Ok me and my girlfriend have been invited to a "tea party", what is appropriate clothing?

    Thinking beige semi-smart trousers and a light colored shirt for me, a flowery skirt and modest top for her? Is this what is meant? You guys are British, this should be in your blood.


    (yes, I do want to take along a placard and dress in red, white and blue, no that is not the kind of tea party meant)

    I actually think that draping the Union Flag over your shoulders is a capital idea, how better to show your acceptance of British culture and tradition? Red, white and blue it is.

    Drinking tea and prancing about on grass pretending to be English related. So...biscuit I guess.

    I've never been to a tea party :emo:

    Tea dress for the lady and perhaps chinos and a nice shirt for the gentlemen? Talk in a British accent and remember that a drop cake is a scone and you're on your way!

    Flower, plain block color or gingham () dress/skirt with a camisole is ideal for a tea party



    ...for men hummmm I would say a plain white shirt and beige smart trousers is your best bet


    Light colour shirt might look too pastelly plainy with beige!

    Sabertooth, I have the following message for you:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    Ahahahahahaha you're going to a tea party. :rofl:


    But seriously, just wear a slightly nicer version of what you'd normally wear, for example if your girlfriend doesn't usually wear skirts then there wouldn't be anything wrong with her wearing some fairly smart trousers instead.

    Enjoy your tea party. :tea:

    I'd wear a blazer or sports jacket if I were you (maybe actual "smart" trousers rather than "semi-smart"). Of course, it depends on who the host is.
