Smart Casual – How It Works

Smart Casual – Introduction

We all get invited time by time. Whether after a working day for the afterwork event, a private party with friends, company meetings or other cool events.

The flyers and Emails flutter in all colors and shapes in our physical and digital letterboxes.

The Dress Code, Smart Casual ‘is often found on the promising invitation.

Well, one approach are the two words ‘Smart’ and ‘Casual’. It’s supposed to be a style between elegant and casual – but not overdressed.

Sounds complicated? It is not complicated.
