OOTD - Smart n Chic Casuals !

Hola chicas!
Hope you all are doing good.. Its Friday and I have some exciting plans for this weekend which also includes the Indiblogger Meet this Sunday. I hope it would be as exciting as the last time.

My last post was on the store visit to Crabtree & Evelyn, DLF  Place, Saket! And I had promised that I would share the outfit I wore that day soon. 
I had to rush to the event directly from work, so I couldn't wear anything flashy or blingy. The dress code at my office is quite relaxed, we are allowed to wear Smart Casuals or semi-formals, but most of the people at my office also turn up in pure casuals. 
If you are bored of wearing Indian ethnic wear or western formals to office daily, you can jazz up your look by trying Smart Casuals if your office allows. Here are a few tips if you wish to wear smart casuals to work -
  • Rather than plain, light colored shirts you can experiment by wearing blouses, stylish knit tops, a nice sweater set, or classic sleeveless tops with a cardigan or jacket.
  • You can play with stylish color-blocking as well, and can wear printed shirts or blouses with pleated trousers or cropped pants.
  • You can also wear smart knee length dresses, skirts and even palazzo pants to make a unique style statement. ;)
  • A pair of Palazzo pants with a tucked in pussy bow blouse, heels and satchel bag would definitely make you look good and you can even head to a bar with friends later in the same outfit.
I decided to wear my checks print formal trousers with a black camisole and wore a cut-out sleeves top as a crop-top to give the outfit a chic look. To give the outfit a more glam look- I added the lovely aztec print necklace from Forever 21. 
Top - Thrifted
Camisole - Vero Moda
Trousers - Wills Lifestyle
Bellies - BATA
Bag - MANGO
Necklace - Forever 21

Watch - ALDO



So, what are your views on Smart Casuals? What do you prefer to wear for work? Do share with us in the comments below!
The next post would be an OOTD - Review post of an online shopping portal. Stay tuned. :D
Loads of love
