Do you ever find yourself questioning what a smart casual dress code entails? Well ladies, you are not alone, as I too have stumbled when styling this specific ensemble. A birthday brunch, an engagement soiree, an anniversary with the bae – the stylistic tone remains the same, favouring chic, clean lines and classic accessories. To make things easier, I’m sharing my Top 7 Pieces For Your Smart Casual Wardrobe.
French Connection Mozart Knit 2IN1, Witchery Side Panel Joggers, Lack of Color Ivory Fedora, Loeffler Randall Winnie Tassel Slippers, Samantha Wills Jasmine & Fleetwood Drop Earrings, Furla Bubble Keyring Moonstone, Mimco Supermicra Pouch.
Cigarette, capri or joggers – I believe any fabulous female should always have a crisp, tailored pant at the ready. Look for neutral colours that will provide versatility with the rest of your wardrobe. I absolutely love these ivory panelled joggers as they are simple yet chic, perfect for a relaxed outdoor setting, or an intimate dinner with riverside views.
This item is the perfect transeasonal piece, to be worn by itself in the warmer months and layered delicately in winter. This French Connection piece is a fabulous combination of sexy and sophisticated, with it’s classic high neckline and split back detail with sheer panelling. Not to mention, it’s black so it will go with everything in your wardrobe!
Because a tote is not always practical for those cheeky Espresso Martini’s in a crowded riverside bar. Metallics help to elevate even the most neutral colour palette, taking you from desk to dance floor in seconds.
Comfortable and totally on trend, a girl needs a pair of loafers as part of her shoe-robe and who can resist these metallic, tasseled slippers? If Cinderella had a pair of these perhaps she wouldn’t have needed to leave the ball so promptly, amiright?
I recently found myself at a spectacular little picnic for the launch of UberEATS. Relaxed setting – tick! Delicious treats – tick! Chic, casual style – tick! The only thing that was missing, was a classic hat like this effortless Lack of Color Fedora. Need I remind you how fabulous Amal Clooney looks in a hat? Inspo!
There’s nothing quite so sophisticated as a statement drop earring, especially when paired with an effortless nape of the neck hairstyle. Samantha Wills is delivering the goods with this simple pearl design and rose gold hardware. Divine!
Perhaps the cheekiest little accessory you’ll ever own! I’ve just added my third bag pom to my collection (thank you Ted Baker) and I’m not about to stop until I own one in every pastel colour! Adding just the right amount of playfulness to an outfit, a bag pom highlights a flair for accessorising – talk about goals!
