Style Tips for the Smart Casual Look

Smart casual is another look I love styling. It is quite easy to get this look right. If you read my last fashion post about rocking the casual daywear look, then you will know all about my love for the trend. The smart casual look is also close to heart. It is another look I found myself styling pretty much everyday some years ago when I worked for an energy company in Manchester.

For those who are not sure what this trend is all about, here is a definition for you. The Oxford Dictionary defines the smart causal look as “neat, conventional, yet relatively informal in style, especially as worn to conform to a particular dress code” Here are some style tips that may come handy if you intend to style the smart casual look –

 

Get a blazer

Rocking a blazer is one of the easiest way to add smartness to a causal look. A blazer has the power to add a touch of class to your regular casual look. And it does so effortlessly.

Knee-length pieces

My love for smart causal became stronger when I became a Mummy in 2013. It is easier to attend an event with twins looking dressed in a smart causal outfit than going all out with heels and minis. The smart casual look is easy to nail with knee-length dresses and skirts rather than minis.

 

Linen works in the warmer months

In the summer, linen works great for styling this look. Opt for chic linen trousers instead of jeans or leggings.

Add a clutch

A stylish clutch adds some more glam to your look. Go for an all-purpose clutch with some subtle beading to get this look right. I am usually not a clutch girl but I have invested in a couple this year, and I am glad I did. They are super handy to have around.

Outfit Post – Fashion on the Street

Happy Sunday Fashion Lovers! I hope we all are having a lovely Sunday evening. It has been a very busy weekend here with us doing some home improvements. We are pretty much done which is great because I know I have a busy week ahead. I made time out of our busy home improvement schedule to take these outfit pictures. The weather has been up and down here but I didn’t let the crazy weather take over my weekend.

I got the denim shirt from Macy’s earlier in the year and I am glad I did. It is a lovely shirt, fits great and looks even better. It is a piece that is easy to style. I styled this look effortlessly.

The black leggings is a new addition as well. I am forever buying new leggings because I wear them regularly and they wear out really quickly. I think leggings are an all weather clothing so it makes fashion sense to have a couple of them in your wardrobe. This leggings was bought some days ago. I like the quality and the petite length. Hopefully the new pairs I got would last longer than others.

Another new addition is the Fern Blue Faux Suede Flat Espadrilles Pumps. I love the colour of this flats. It is such a rich shade of blue and I am super in love with it.

This footwear is great for casual looks like this as it is super comfy but stylish at the same time. It is now one of my favourites. What do you think?

Everything else I am wearing is oldie. I have had the bag for a few years now and it still looks great. There sunglasses I have had for many years now and it always looks brand new everything I wear it. That is why I like to spend money on quality items regardless of how much they cost. I know I would get more value from money from the expensive items than from a cheaper version.
