What Should You Wear To A Restaurant With A Smart Casual Dress Code?


Cook, Motivationist and Nutritionist.

The idea with smart casual is to combine elegant professionalism with something dressy and casual. In other words, it’s the combination of business dress code and a casual one. Pairing two different articles of clothing that fit each dress code is always a great trick to accomplish the right look. For instance, you could pair a neat tailored blazer (business) over some dark jeans (casual). Avoid articles of clothing you would never wear in the workplace as a rule of thumb. You don’t want to turn up in a t-shirt and jeans but you don’t want to overdo things with a full business suit either. 

The term smart casual has actually come a long way since it was first used in the 1920s, and rightly so because what we consider to be professional clothing has changed a lot over the years. According to style expert Lydia Tomlinson, smart casual is a chance for you to “combine style with comfort.” Now that we’ve got the definition out of the way, let’s talk about what you can actually wear with this dress code.
