    Start with the basics. A sheath dress is always classic. A conservative cardigan (well-tailored) adds a ladylike appeal. Great pumps are a must.

    Remember that it's about a look, not breaking the piggy bank. Just because you want to look chic and sweet doesn't mean you have to buy a $350 Lilly Pulitzer dress. While you do not want to look cheap, you don't need to go crazy.

    Avoid tacky jewelry or overly revealing cuts. The idea is to look prim but fun. Just don't look too much fun, making sure to keep it classy. Simple diamond studs or pearls can do the trick.

    Use statement pieces in a quiet way. If you have a black collar necklace, place it with a deep blue, high necked dress. Once again, we're avoiding looking too flashy. Be eye-catching, not shocking.

    Wear cropped or trouser pants if you want to stay away from dresses. Jeans, yoga pants, leggings, and sweat pants never belong at the country club. It doesn't matter how casual the event is.
