Hello all,

I am going to a dance holiday party. I don't know what to wear. Its the first year that's it at a restaurant. For the past two years its been at a dance studio. Two years ago I threw on a pair of jeans and a shirt. Last year I had a cute dress on. I have know idea what to wear this year because the change of venue. Thanks for the help!

Given your past attire, I'd chose business casual especially with the new venue. It bridges the gap between jeans and a cute dress. Just make sure the wardrobe is comfortable since I'm sure several styles of dance will be part of the party. Casual slacks, button shirt or classy t-shirt with a sports jacket. Alternatively, throw on the jeans with a classy t-shirt (no 'in your face' logos) and sports jacket.

If the party is held in private room, then the jeans thing can work. Regardless, again considering the venue even with a private room, the cute dress probably won't be the best idea.

Ask the other attendees you know what they plan to wear and take it from there. Personally, I would choose something not too outrageous and still makes a statement. Think about what statement you want to make and go with it. If you were just doing to that particular restaurant, what would you wear - just spice it up a bit for the party aspect.
