How to Crush the Professional Smart Casual Outfit Look

Fashion blog: How to Crush the Professional Smart Casual Outfit Look

Dressing for work can be such a chore - especially for a new job! What does smart casual even really mean? 

We like to think of it as polished but still comfortable. Somewhere in between a pantsuit and your I’m-done-for-the-day sweats. At the same time, don’t be afraid to be a little fashion-forward with your outfits. 

With all that in mind, here are some ways you can crush the smart casual look.

Blazers

Almost irrespective of how casual your outfit may be, a blazer instantly brings it up to code. From a t-shirt and jeans to a summer dress, a blazer is an easy way to add some professionalism to your look.

Shirt Dress

Choosing the right outfit for work can be time consuming, so when you're in a rush, a shirt dress is a great option. The buttoned-down front gives it a touch of professionalism but it's still comfortable for all day wear. Tie a belt around the waist for an extra helping of style.

 Button-down Blouse

A button-down blouse with a pair of pants or jeans is so simple but will place you squarely in the realm of smart casual style. Never be afraid to roll up your sleeves, literally, and get down to business.

Jackets & Coats

When it's too cold for just a blouse or dress, a simple jacket or coat can dress you up nicely. Keep it casual with a short sleeve blouse or smarten it up with a button-down shirt.

Sweater

Similarly, a sweater works great in cooler weather. A matching sweater and skirt will earn you some style points while a pair of jeans or pants will keep the vibe more casual.

Wide Leg Pants

If you can get away with wearing a more loose fitting pair of pants, go for it. Just make sure to balance it out with a tight fitting top to avoid a baggy look.
