Hey guys! With Halloween looming in the distance, can you clarify the term "fancy dress"? In the US this would imply formal wear, possibly edging on ballgown and white, elbow-length gloves (that's an extreme), but definitely implies "don't you dare wear blue jeans and/or flip flops". Yet I think this term back-translated from the UK meaning means "costume" to us in the US. Any insight into this?

Oooh. Good question. Any takers?
