A band box is what they used to call a hat box. One for particularly delicate hats and accessories. So anything that came straight out of a "band box" was fresh and perfect and brand new. Over time the phrase morphed into meaning a very snappy, meticulous dresser.

So it means you're wearing a complete outfit that looks just perfect, as if the outfit were fresh from the "band box" from the store.

Just stepped out of the bandbox?

During the "Big Band" era the bands performed on stage and on the front, center of the stage was a box in which the singer stood to perform. If you've seen any old movie musicals, you can appreciate how perfectly groomed and beautifully dressed the singers were. So to look like you just stepped out of a band box it means everything about the way you look is perfect. I saw another answer referring to a "band box" as a place where the clergy kept their ceremonial accessories that always had to be perfectly maintained. It seems to me that the only thing able to step out of such a band box would be an insect and looking like one isn't the meaning of the phrase at all.
