Perfecting the ‘Smasual’ Look!

One of my most common enquiries from clients is how to achieve the holy grail of outfit creation, the smart-casual (or ‘smasual’) look. Presentable yet a comfortable way of dressing, what’s not to love!

Investing in some key and classic pieces is the secret to a good smart-casual wardrobe; these can then be mixed and matched with basics.

Look out for:

  • Mid length dresses (tea dresses and shifts are a great example)
  • Mid-rise, dark wash denim jeans
  • A classic skirt, such as A-line or pencil
  • A blouse (a good place to add pattern, colour or texture to your basics)
  • Tailored jacket/blazer (this can be thrown over dresses, jeans, trousers)
  • Cardigan in a fun, flattering colour (cashmere is a good investment)
  • Dress shoe (a nice kitten heel is practical and dresses up jeans or a day dress)
  • Pretty pump (just because….)
