Mens Guide To Smart Casual Dressing
What do you wear when you’ve been invited to after work drinks but you’ve got to dress smart in the office, or come the weekend and you’ve got a special evening out? Smart-casual is a dress code that covers both styles, but is wearing a shirt and jacket trying too hard?
Nowadays, smart casual is a term used frequently to define how we dress. Often the ideal answer is a blazer, smart jeans, a white shirt and brown loafers. The idea is to pair down a smart blazer or shirt with a pair of jeans and shoes or trainers to keep the look smart. This will ensure a relaxed and casual style, whilst keeping it formal enough for special occasions. There are many combinations you can try to adopt for this dress code, for example a pair of Nudie Jeans with white Zespa trainers and a BOSS shirt will ensure effortless style, whilst keeping it relaxed and suitable for any smart casual event.
We’ve come up with just a few simple ways that you can transform your look from day to night:
