Dress codes have their place, especially for business or special occasions. Smart and formal wear is pretty easy to decide on, and casual usually indicates jeans are acceptable and everything in between.
But what about smart casual? It can sometimes feel ambiguous and leave us wondering and questioning what exactly is appropriate. Here is a guide to what smart casual really means.
A good fitted shirt can bring both a smart and casual element to your outfit, It can either be a single-coloured shirt or patterned, depending on what you prefer.
A blazer is a great alternative to a suit jacket because it shouts sophistication as well as casual.
T-shirts is perfectly acceptable as long as you stick to plain colors; teamed with a good fitting blazer and slacks.
Jeans can be perfectly acceptable in a smart casual setting, but make sure they’re well fitted or dark in color – no holes or rips, teamed with a good fitting blazer and shirt.
You can pretty much get away with wearing anything on your feet as long as they’re not trainers. Slip-ons and some smart boots are a good way to compliment an outfit.
