Attire

The event is Smart Casual….but what does that even mean?!?!?!

Oxford defines it as “a style of dressing in which people wear clothes that are neat but not formal.”

Smart casual attire is a dress code that combines well-fitting, polished business wear with elements of casual attire—think blouses, polo shirts, button-downs, chinos, dress pants, dark-wash jeans, and polished, practical footwear. On the spectrum of formality, smart casual lies between dressy casual (jeans and blouses) and business casual (dress pants and pencil skirts). A common way to achieve a smart casual look is to pair pieces of slightly different formality levels, like a pencil skirt with a vibrant sweater, or a refined blazer over a flirty blouse.

Urban Dictionary calls Smart Casual “A nonsensical dress code that people slap onto events, parties, and workplaces. Completely down to interpretation; this always causes confusion and often spectacular results. A mixture between smart and casual – should not be taken literally.”

So, go ahead and check out this photo album to get a flavor for what people wore to the event last year:
