Will Field on Smart Casual
There’s a myth that knitwear is only for winter but there are many options for summer too. The use of high-twist yarns, open weaves, linen and silk blends help make knitwear highly relevant to wear year-round with smart-casual tailoring. The broken suit is also a good option, mixing and matching blazers, trousers, etc. Speaking of which, trousers can also be a great staple piece and in the correct cut and style, really bring an outfit together without much effort. It’s a kind of reverse notion to wearing a slightly rowdy sports coat. Think neutral tones like browns and creams, blues and greys, with a focus on details. Having a Ghurka waistband or double pleats finished with hand “Travetta” bar-tacks can both be achievable good options.
Smart casual is a golden opportunity to dress both elegantly and intelligently in a non-ostentatious way, an evolved form of classic understated style in the work place or wherever you like.
