I've been invited to a wedding of a high school friend. We graduated 12 years ago, but have kept in contact on FB, though rarely actually see each other.
I really would like to go but am confused as to attire. The invite says "black tie invited" is that like formal/prom wear or would a nice blouse and skirt do?
I never wear dresses, so I am going to have to borrow or buy something...

It's sort of the same as black-tie optional.
The wedding party is going to be formal, as are most the the guests. But it's not strictly necessary.
Basically it's saying please dress up - but we won't force you to if you desperately don't want to.
So just make as much of an effort as you're comfortable doing. So yeah a nice skirt and blouse would be fine.1
