How To Master The Smart Casual Attire  

Manchester, United Kingdom -
Classic Fit Red Dobby Check Single Cuff Shirt
It’s a tale as old as time! The problem that each man experiences at LEAST once a fortnight. Why is mastering the smart casual attire so incredibly hard? 

Why is mastering the smart casual attire so incredibly hard? Not too casual, but not too formal. So, not your tracksuit pants, but not your formal suit? – I’m confused and this all sounds like a recipe for disaster. Then what exactly is smart casual and what does it mean today? We are here to answer all your questions! Don’t shy away from colours and patterns when it comes to smart casual! If anything, this may give your outfit the fresh look that was needed.

It’s always worth incorporating light colours into your wardrobe and into the smart casual attire. Light colours can be easily matched, so it’s important to invest in. For example, pale pink, pale blue as well as polka dot and pattern all have the ability to nail a smart casual attire. 

 

These colours all give off a more fun sense of style with a subtle statement (exactly what we are looking for! A strong yet subtle style execution). Not only does this help accomplish the smart look, but colours also help make the outfit more casual, and less like you have just finished a long day at work! 

 

You can wear out a dressier shirt and still manage to make it appropriate if you learn the techniques. Are we getting too complicated? A well fitted shirt is an essential in the wardrobe. A plain formal shirt will get the most use out of all the other shirts you have hanging right now. Layer a shirt over a crisp t-shirt, roll up the sleeves, pair a shirt with a cashmere jumper, ditch the black shoes and opt for a more casual loafer or brown brogue.
