In the evening after work, some of us head out to parties, others head out to attend important functions and some of us go out for company meetings. Dressing up nicely is extremely important for any function.

An after five wear or attire is often the apparel you choose to wear for a formal or casual function. The professional clothes which you wear from nine to five is called your work clothing and the attire for example, a cocktail dress or cocktail suit which you choose to wear for an important casual or formal function is called an after five or a cocktail attire
After Five Apparel for Men
Business and office concept - businessman in suit
The usual after five choice for men is the evergreen formal black suit. Ensure that you get a good tie for this black suit. In some cases a tie may be optional, but wearing a tie that complements your suit, will turn some heads around. The suit's color and fabric should always be decided according to the season. In winter, black suit made of a heavier fabric like wool would be a smart choice while on hot days light colored suit stitched from a light fabric such as linen would be ideal.

To play safe, most of us opt for vintage silk ties; they are classy and define men's formal fashion. If you are attending a casual function, like a cocktail party or a wedding reception, you can drop the suit and wear a nice jacket with or without a tie. Always wear a well-ironed, good pair of pants and avoid jeans. Jeans are never bad, but if you are attending a function or a party make sure your dress suits the theme, because an after five dress code is always specified in these functions.
After Five Apparel for Women

It's not tough anymore to go shopping for plus size clothing for women; you just have to figure out what to wear. Cocktail dresses or gowns can be worn even to weddings held after 6:00 pm; (avoid white at a wedding as that color is reserved for the bride). Many accessories and jewelry complement such dresses. Remember to wear the right shoes and carry a matching purse. Accessorize according to the bling factor of your outfit. The fancier it is, the lesser jewelry you should wear and vice versa.

Different types of attire are chosen for different occasions, and for women after five clothing comprises cocktail dresses, gowns and suits. If you are attending an opening or a formal wedding, a business function, or collecting an award, choose a formal skirt, or some nice pants. Going out clubbing and dancing requires party wear which involves comfortable dressing. Opt for short skirts/dresses, comfortable pants or shorts which will allow you to groove on the dance floor.
Dressing up nicely puts a positive impression in front of your seniors, colleagues, friends and peers and it shows that you consider every gathering important and are thankful for the invite. Never underestimate the power of clothing, you would be amazed how much respect an individual can get by just dressing up nicely.
