How to navigate this dress code |

Compiling smart casual outfit ideas is no easy task and the mere mention of the dress code ‘smart casual’ is enough to induce a sartorial meltdown for even the savviest of dressers. Not super formal and not casual enough for loungewear, getting the line just right takes some practice. 

Thought to be a term coined in the mid-twenties, smart casual originally referred to men’s clothing, suggesting suits of less heavy fabrics, in more unconventional colors, could be worn to certain events. However, since then, the term has encompassed all categories and is regularly bounded around for events of all kinds, leaving plenty of outfit anxiety. Celebrity stylist Natalie Robinson believes the term is too open and that’s why it’s often daunting to dress for those occasions that call for smart casual.
