DressYourGuest.com is a new website that saves you and your most anxious host from the embarrassment of sub-par fashion ensembles. Developed by Elyse Newhouse and Kate Brennan, DYG allows party planners to register their events, send out customizable invitations, and clear up any confusion over all too ambiguous dress codes -- "Festive Casual?" Seriously?

Once your guests log in to your pre-registered party they can upload potential outfit photos, interact with DYG-approved stylists, and contribute their own two cents on your avant-garde getup.

With it's free fashion advice forum, DYG intends to help guests avoid same-outfit-showdowns, getting the stink eye from micromanaging hosts, and hearing the biting phrase "I love how you just wear anything."
