Please tell me I’m not the only one out there who doesn’t understand the concept of “Smart Casual” dressing? Every time I am told to come in “Smart Casual” dress, I am stumped. Recently, I picked up a jacket/cardigan that seemed to fit the bill so I plan to trot it out every time I am told to come in “Smart Casual dress”. I put a picture of me wearing it on Instagram and was reminded by a friend that I hadn’t done a “What I Wore” post in a while. So I thought I’d do one using this jacket/cardigan.
The reason I thought this jacket/cardigan would fit the smart casual bill is because it wasn’t too formal in material, yet had a structured shape to it so it didn’t look too casual. It is a heavy knit and actually looks quite preppy, with the round collar and all. All I’m missing is a string of pearls 😛
Perhaps if I were the more creative sort, I’d do something with the buttons. Change them to something a little less plain, but since I’m terrible at sewing, I’ll live with them.
