when jackets are required for the men....

what, if any, is the unspoken requirement for women?

Is being beautiful and elegantly dressed enough, or do I have to wear a dress/skirt?

It's not that I'm against dresses or skirts per se, it's more that I'll be dining with my best female friend and I'm just not motivated to get all fluffy and sexy - as I would be if I had a male dining companion and was trying to impress him. And I don't want to be cold, shivering tends to diminish my enjoyment of long expensive dinners, so I'm leaning towards nice black slacks, maybe a dressy Banana Republic sweater, tasteful jewelry, silly shoes.....I'm not really that concerned, just interested in outside opinions on what 'jackets required' translates to for women.
