Having a dress code for an event (or other occasion) might seem like a good idea, but there are certain drawbacks you may want to consider:

The disadvantages of dress codes
1) A dress code might put people off attending an event.
If the dress code is overly-complicated, or if it requires attendees to spend a significant amount of money buying a suitable outfit, this might be enough to put people off coming in the first place.

2) If a dress code seems overly formal (or overly casual) it can give people the impression that they won't fit in. For example, someone who usually slouches about in jeans and sneakers might feel uncomfortable having to wear a shirt and bow-tie for an event. A good dress code won't ostracize people, but a poorly-chosen one will!

3) Finally, a dress code takes all the individuality out of choosing an outfit. Some people will be relieved not to have to worry about what to wear, whilst others will feel restricted by the lack of options.

If you're planning to enforce a dress code for an event or gathering, I would make sure you stick to a policy that is as inclusive as possible!

You will not be able to express your own individual fashion sense because you would only be limited to the code, and if you prefer being an individual- the dress code would limit you because you will have to look like everyone else and you would blend in.
