You can wear absolutely anything you like. On formal nights, you will see anything from the very dressy (sequined dresses and tuxedos) to business-like dressy outfits. There are no real rules that I'm aware of.

On our recent cruise, we received a daily bulletin telling us, among other things, the dress for dinner that night. Only Saturday night was "formal" (dark suit or tuxedo for the men, long dresses or cocktail dresses for the ladies); "smart casual" was another category as was "casual." We saw a bit of everything; everyone looked wonderful (I think people secretly like to dress up). We saw a lot--every night--of the short, black cocktail dress. We cruised out of Miami in areas that are supposed to be warm but I found the evenings cool, even in the dining room and our cabin.

As has been said, you can wear anything you want. We have seen formal evenings include the dressiest and all the way down to blue jeans. It is what your idea of dressy or formal is. Women can usually dress up almost anything so it looks dressy. Ship air conditioning can often be on the cool side so a light cover up of some kind is often a good idea.
Happy sailing.

Here's some advice from a travel
agent. Granted, you may dress as
you like, but, there are some
cruise lines where formal nights
are important. You will stick out
like a sore thumb if you wear
jeans on, say a Crystal, Seaborn, Raddisson, Cunard and
Silversea cruises. A little less
so on Holland American, Princess, cruises in Europe, Asia, So. Pacific, Australia and Hawaii.
If you really want to dress down, take a Carnival Cruise.

There is something about dressing for dinner that really makes a cruise worthwhile--the guys all look alike, but you ladies, you provide the essential extra that makes dining worthwhile--how many times do you get to "put on the dog"--do it, love ya for doing it!
