As more and more workplaces embrace casual wear, smart casual has emerged as a more sophisticated take on casual office attire. Smart casual refers to clothing that is tailored and elegant yet casual. While there is no specific "look" that equates to achieving this laid-back look, it's more important to focus on the make and fit of each individual piece. Smart casual clothing should be made with higher quality fabrics and have a perfect fit.
The secret to wearing smart casual is to ensure each piece is tailored--opt for a sportcoat with a slimmer cut or have items customized. For example, create a look with a sportcoat, linen shirt, five-pocket pants and loafers--this is a polished yet casual look that can take you from the office to happy hour.
Many brands are offering fresh, unique takes on smart casual pieces to help you express your personality. Made-to-measure (custom) clothing is another option that can help you build your smart casual wardrobe. Often when we think of made-to-measure we tend to think only of suiting. However, smart casual pieces can be customized for your specific body type and with your distinctive styling choices.
Whether you buy your smart casual pieces off-the-rack or made-to-measure, focus on the fit and quality of each piece to ensure a polished, sophisticated and elegant look. This is what makes casual smart. How do you wear your casual wear?
