Hey guys! How can I politely tell my guests to dress up nicely?

I tested out at my engagement party if my guest would follow the cocktail theme, but most rocked up with what I'd consider something you'd wear to a 21st or a night out. I want my event to be super formal and everyone look accordingly but not sure how to word it nicely. Thank you :)
