Smart casual can be one of the most challenging dress codes to understand, and whether it’s the dress code at your office or for an event or venue, you’re going to. Even when you know what sort of stuff fits with the dress code, it can be tricky to feel like you can add your style or flair to what you’re wearing. Usually, we tend to invest more in the clothes on either end of the smart to casual spectra, such as evening wear and streetwear, and don’t put as much thought into the middle ground!
But, whether it’s for work or your social life, if you need to boost the options for your smart-casual wardrobe, then one of the best menswear brands to look to is Burberry. Burberry does cater to fashion for all settings, from ties and pocket squares for formal dressing to caps, sneakers, and shorts for everyday urban life. However, they are an excellent choice for things on the casual end of smart, too, with shirts, pants, shoes, and jackets that add a very fashionable twist to safe, reliable smart-casual staples like polo shorts and loafers.
