The Smart Casual dress code poses many puzzles: Smart, but still casual. When are you too overdressed, when too casual? Especially at events that are attended directly after the working day, subtly relaxed business fashion is often being worn. In principle, this includes everything you wear to a meeting, but with which you would also go for a business meeting afterwards.
With Smart Casual, women can choose between office-compatible trousers such as business trousers. Skirts of the recommended length are also allowed. It should be combined with a subtle patterned blouse and a casual blazer. T-shirts, sweaters or cardigans are an option, too - but here, the focus should definitely be on very good quality and high quality optics. Dresses are an “evergreen”, but they should be reserved and under no circumstances should they appear too revealing.
You can style a great smart casual outfit with midi skirt. A midi skirt made of flowing material, creates a slim silhouette. But careful, the skirt visually shortens the legs and is for smaller women only suitable with high heels.
Casual and oversized, with wearing a blazer you can easily transform a casual look into a smart casual look.
The blazer can be chosen in intensive colors or with a pattern
A smart casual outfit is often worn at work, but also at events directly after work. Therefore, a tote bag fits very well with the outfit, since it is chic and practical. You can stow a small laptop or an iPad in it.
