What the hell is an "elegant casual" dress code?

I'll be attending my boyfriend's holiday work party this week. On the invitation, it states the dress code is "elegant casual" and the event is to be held at a local event facility.
What does "elegant casual" actually mean? Specific examples or photos would be great.
My boyfriend asked one of his female coworkers (she is in her 50s) for advice on what I should wear. She suggested a "nice pantsuit."
I don't own any dress pants or pantsuits. I have quite a few "casual" dresses (knee length and most are black). My hair is kind of short - so I guess I can't put it up. I don't own heels but own flat shoes.
How do I add "formal" to casual" ?
