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.

 

Are you a fan of the smart causal look? What do you like about it?

Style Icon – NeNe Leakes

Hey style lovers! Long time no Style Icon post right? Life has been busy and my content has been busy along with it. But today I bring to you one of my favourite Housewives – NeNe Leakes, and she is a Style Icon

I have been watching NeNe Leakes since she started as one of the original Housewives on the Bravo hit reality tv show – The Real Housewives of Atlanta. If you follow me on Twitter, you would know I am a huge fan of the reality show. The ladies with their over the top craziness and they are good entertainment. I recently signed up for Amazon Prime so I get to watch all sorts of series now. Some weeks ago, I started watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta from season 1 and it brought back memories. It is great to look back and see how the women have grown and developed their brands.

NeNe Leakes has always been one of my favourite ladies on the show. She says it as it is most of the time. And although many may find her annoying, I think you either love her or hate her, and I love her. NeNe also has amazing style and looks good in almost everything she wears. Now I must say I wasn’t a fan of her fashion sense when she first started on the show. But as the series went on, her fashion sense started to make sense and I fell in love with her style.

Leakes is one woman who I know for sure wears her pieces, her pieces do not wear her. She has the carriage and charisma to look so stylish in anything she wears. And that is why she is a Style Icon on Fashion and Style Police today.

Outfit Post – British Fashion Blogger

As a British Fashion Blogger, I like to explore as many British Fashion Brands as possible. Over the years, I have found some amazing British Fashion brands and I tend to wear quite a few of their pieces. I love exploring when it comes to fashion and beauty, which is why my wardrobe is full of very different pieces and accessories. Variety is the spice of life!

The weather has been incredibly hot in Cheshire these last few weeks. It has been so hot and uncomfortable that wearing any sort of outfit feels like a chore. Which is why I like to wear as little as possible. I got this t-shirt in Macy’s while holidaying in the US, and I am happy I finally got around wearing it. It is dead comfy and it is a great fit. I like my t-shirt hanging loose, especially in the warm summer months. I can seeing myself wearing this t-shirt a lot this season.

The cropped leggings is also a new wardrobe addition. I love wearing leggings as I find them dead comfy and easy to style. But these last few weeks have made it almost impossible to wear them. The weather is too warm for anything but shorts. So I think this cropped leggings is a smart invention for leggings lovers like me. You get to wear a cropped version and stay cool.

I think this cropped basic leggings are a must have for any summer wardrobe. It is a stylish way of looking good and staying comfortable while this heatwave is on. You can dress it up or down, depending on the occasion. I had some errands to run, so I went for my comfy sandals.

What do you think of this look?  Are you into leggings as much as I am?
