Bridge that gap between casual wear and business casuals with smart casual attire that can take you from a business meeting to a date night with ease. Here are a few staples to add to your smart casuals’ wardrobe…
A few well-fitted casual shirts are an absolutely must-have in your wardrobe. For a more relaxed look, you can roll up the sleeves or pick half-sleeved shirts instead. Choose from checks, prints, stripes or solid colours. A variety of colours – neutrals, warm and cool shades – and prints are essential to build the perfect wardrobe.
A classic trend in menswear, Polo t-shirts can look relaxed or smart depending on what you pair them with. Pick between prints and colours and pair them with jeans, chinos or even elevate your look by pairing it with trousers. You can also layer it with a jacket for a day out or a blazer for evening wear.
Chinos & trousers
Comfortable and stylish, well-tailored and slim fit chinos and trousers will take any look up a notch. The cotton fabric is great for the warmer weather and the cut will help you achieve that smart casual look. Invest in colours like Khaki, Navy-Blue, Black and Beige since they are easy to match with other clothing.
Denims are the backbone of casual clothing and you can spruce it up to smart casuals with the right pair. Straight cuts and dark washes are great to pair with your shirts or Polo t-shirts for a more polished look. The same rules apply to denims as they do for trousers – opt for colours that will match easily.
