They said casual but casual? Going to Texas which is super hot so packed shorts.

Bring the cowboy hat, belt buckle, and spurs. Boots optional if you can fit the spurs on sandales.

really helpful thanks


texas is open carry as well, so make sure people see your sidearm

This is for school?

If so and if it is a particularly religious school then it would be business casual, if it is secular I would suggest wearing what is comfortable, Be aware that in the south they tend to crank up the AC in the summer so bring a sweater or long sleeve shirt you can pop on or off as needed if you are susceptible to being cold indoors during air conditioning season.

Screw that.  Dress to impress.

Look at pictures on the school's website, of similar events at a similar time of year.  Most open houses aren't at all formal - whatever students would wear to class is fine, though usually attendees tend to dress more like what students would wear for a crit day with guest critics - so one step up from everyday student wear. 

An exception would be if it's a school that has a more formal dinner as part of its open house (in which case they would have told you that in the invite materials).  If you'll be going to a restaurant or to an alumni club or to a faculty member's house for dinner (all things that happen at certain schools) then you'd want to dress up slightly for that - though unless they tell you otherwise you could still expect nothing more formal than business casual.

The denim button down shit says formal but can kick ass at a moments notice.


That person would have their ass kicked before they hit 'post comment'


Frank Gehry was inspired by Chuck Norris after he saw him punch a building really hard.


Is this UT? And you've already been accepted? Wear whatever you want.

Wear that same old, baggy t-shirt with the stain on it that you got from that team-building exercise.

Is it UT Austin? Last time I visited there some hipster was wearing a gandalf cloak... Wear whatever you want.
