Your Outfit Organised: What to Wear to an Autumn Dinner Party

You know the saying: "It's better to be overdressed than underdressed." How about, "You can never be overdressed or overeducated"? While these well-known phrases fill us with confidence and ensure we never put a fashionable foot wrong, it can be really (really) embrassing to interpret the dress code wrong and turn up in a super-dressy outfit, while everyone else is in denim cut-offs and thongs.

Dinner parties are one of those occasions where nobody is really sure how to dress. Is it a casual backyard BBQ, with the kids running around? Or is it a fancy adults-only sit-down dinner, where you're expected to bring a bottle of your best wine?

We've put together 3 forever foolproof, smart casual looks that are bang on-trend, while also walking! that fine line between way too dressed up, and not nearly dressed up enough.
