In case you were wondering, Texas formal means a cocktail dress and boots, a broomstick skirt and boots, dark wash jeans and boots for men and lots of hats and turquoise jewelry. And I should know because they sent out a PowerPoint presentation to make sure we were all dressed appropriately (Nate's military ball was Texas formal last December). I was hoping it would be the regular attire because we both already have things in our closet to wear (evening gown and dress blues), but I ended up in a new black cocktail dress and red cowboy boots and Nate wore jeans. It was actually a lot of fun.
Which got me to thinking, do other states have special dress codes too? Or is this Texas-specific? After a quick Google search, I found dress codes for schools and in one case, a prison, but failed to see anything on the social scale. Can anyone chime in on this?
