“Smart but Casual” Dress Code

I recently wore this outfit to my friend’s party. I was aiming for a “smart but casual” look that didn’t fall into the category of “dresses”. When I initially came across these trousers I was little apprehensive about wearing them because I tend to stick to basic block colours (preferably black) when it comes to trousers, also, the trousers resembled harem-style pants without heels, which was a bit too casual for the event. I think this outfit could be worn on a casual day out too if the heels were swapped for flats and opting for lighter accessories instead. The shirt is a really simple black polo neck that I wear in and out of college, these shirts are really popular at the moment and you can find them at pretty much every major high street retailer.

As for the party – it was a fantastic night! The theme of the night was ‘Hollywood’ and my friend Liv certainly looked the part! It was exciting to see a few famous faces at the party, such as Christine Bleakley from the TV programme This Morning. I went a bit snap-happy with all the pictures/videos – the Speakmans definitely know how to throw a party!

Love from,

Miss Iffa
