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

Oxford defines it as “Elegantly and stylishly fashionable.”

The Huffington Post wrote “Taken together, this term means smart and sophisticated. Elegant, but not overdone. Tailored, but not too traditional. Pairing work with play, casual with dressy doesn’t take a large budget; just a keen eye and some great accessories.”

Urban Dictionary calls casual chic “trendy, well groomed & hip looking clothing”. Much like it’s sister dress code, smart casual, it is “a nonsensical dress code that people slap onto events, parties, and workplaces” that is “completely down to interpretation” and “always causes confusion and often spectacular results.”

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