When the dress code says "smart casual" we immediately reach for an outfit like this one, that is comfortable, appropriate for the weather and easily dressed up or down with the change of a shoe.
You can't go wrong with a jean-and-pretty-top combo for a smart casual event. Simply stash a pair of heels and a pair of flats in your car, so that when you scope out the dressing situation inside, you can easily pop back to the car if you need to dress up or down a touch. A red lippie on hand can do the trick as well!
This outfit features a gorgeous pair of washed khaki jeans from Bird & Kite and their snuggly cardigan in the same colourway. Wearing the same colour like this will give you a polished look.
We've broken up the khaki tone with a crisp white blouse, also from Bird & Kite. It is dressier than a t-shirt but still can pass as casual, given that it is in a matte finish fabric.
