A PROPER SHIRT
The ticket to a winning business casual getup? A sharp shirt. Pick out a straightforward business shirt, or try Tyrwhitt’s dedicated business casual collection: smart yet laid-back in equal measures. They’re both Zoom-friendly and perfect for the odd office appearance.
OR SKIP THE SHIRT
Not the ideal recommendation coming from a shirtmaker, unless said shirtmaker has been cutting a mean polo that is just as smart as a business shirt. We're so confident in its smartness that we put it under our twill business suit, for a look that's as comfortable as it is elegant.
GET A LEG UP
Your video call looks may focus on the top half, but a proper pair of pants never goes amiss. For a mix of business-ready and easy-to-wear – in other words, a handy set of chinos. In stretch cotton and a plethora of colours, it’s just a case of picking the pair that work for you.
TOP IT OFF
Our well-knitted merino jumper makes a nifty finish to a smart casual look with outstanding dress-down credentials. Keep the fit as trim as your build can take to leave no doubts about your sartorial flair, whether it’s worn to work from home or for your next job interview .
Smart casual men look their best in artful, softly-structured tailoring. Choose a smart jacket with soft shoulders and a gentle lining, and you can throw it on over anything – shirts, polos, knits and even a white t-shirt – to dress your look up in an instant. Keep one to hand for surprise meetings with the boss or, if you need something for more formal occasions, try one of our smart casual suits instead. A two-piece in soft jersey or linen will never look out of place at smart casual events.
WALK THE WALK
What is smart casual without the right footwear? Choosing smart casual style shoes can be tricky; but rest assured, there’s a middle ground between formal dress shoes and trainers. A handsome pair of Chelsea boots or Derbies hit the mark at the end of your chinos. Loafers can add a rakish touch… though you may want to wait for fairer weather if your favourite pair is suede. And there you have it: our complete guide to smart casual for men who want to nail this of-the-moment look with ease.
