DRESSED LIKE A DOG'S DINNER

If someone is described as being 'dressed like a dog's dinner', it means they are wearing clothes which are inappropriate for the occasion or too formal. This is quite a negative way to describe someone!

Examples

The dress code was smart/casual, but Linda came wearing a full-length ball gown! She was dressed like a dog's dinner!

My mum really embarrasses me, she always dresses like a dog's dinner, even when we're just going to the shops!

Look at that guy over there! He's wearing a tuxedo in this old pub. He's dressed like a dog's dinner!
