Pop quiz: What's that you're wearing?


After reading several posts on the Miforum listserv about what constitutes "mountain dressy" for an event in Northern Canada, I thought of this quiz we ran eons ago in Corporate Meetings & Incentives magazine:

Match the type of attire in Column A with its definition in Column B

Column A

A. Business Casual

B. Casual Attire

C. Cocktail Attire

D. Dress Casual

E. Resort Casual

Column B

Men: nothing less formal than a blazer and slacks. Women: dressy pant suits or short, dressier dresses.

Men: attire for warm destinations, including mid- to knee-length shorts; collarless or golf shirts; khakis and sandals. Women: linen sheaths, casual skirts or sundresses.

A style of dress that is less formal than the standard office attire of suit and tie or dress.

Men: collared shirts, sweaters, turtlenecks, blazers, and slacks, such as khakis or corduroys. Women: casual dresses or slacks, sweaters, and blouses. No shorts, jeans, T-shirts, flip-flops, etc.
