That is no philosophical phrase that you might have to ponder much upon, it’s as simple as it sounds- smart casual is the new sexy! Meaning that the smart casual style is now the trend!
Now casual is not a fixed choice of clothes in your wardrobe, neither is it a style that will be exactly same for all, it greatly depends on your body type and personality. Though in a broader perspective, casual is something that is not too formal, and neither is it untidy, but it’s something that you can carry around by just being yourself! Casual wear is something that one can carry out every day at the university, hangouts or even simple chores. This type of clothing is very comfortable, though in a very presentable manner. For example a semi-formal shirt with straight pants and a neat pair of pumps with light accessories for ladies.
Saying ‘is the new sexy’ does not literally mean to dress up all sexy, showing those curves and skin, rather it just refers to how the priority has shifted from sexy clothes to casual, which don’t show much of your skin and yet look classy. Here are a few points for you to consider when you dress up casual next;
- Set your signature style
This gives you an edge over the other casually dressed people. Now, this can be sunglasses (if outdoors) or reading glasses indoors, a side bag, or simply a watch/bracelet.
- Bright inner and dull upper
Wear dark colored formal skirt/pants, preferably black, blue or brown, paired with a bright colored shirt inside.
- Pair it up with matching pumps
Pumps are the best option when going smart casual. Pair up the color of your pumps with your jacket to give it a nice semi-formal finish. Though you can pair it with different footwear like closed ankle boots, or small heels, all you have to do is ensure that you don’t end up wearing something very flashy as it will destroy your overall look. Or, maybe not! Flashy also gives the edge.
Wear small cute matching earrings, a nicely ironed scarf, or a classy watch which goes perfectly with your outfit. This will not only help you look different but will show how you put efforts to even the smallest bit of detail.
- Grab a leather bag!
As a woman, it is impossible to move around without carrying your essentials (gloss, retouch makeup, mints, comb, cell phone, wallet, food and what not!)
Now you can’t be looking all smart casual crisp and have these things stuffed in your pocket or in your hands. Get a bag to assist you! Let it be your organizer. So ladies, pay close attention to these points and rock your outfit like you always do! But remember, your attitude is the little secret here. Be confident in the way you look, embrace yourself and walk with faith.
