Working in a smart casual office myself, I have to agree that this is a difficult thing to nail. There are so many options and combinations, I find myself looking in the mirror wondering if I look smart enough or indeed too smart.
Smart casual rules for most seem to be set from above rather than by some written law that we all should stick to. In my opinion this is probably the best way to go as there is too much ambiguity about what smart casual should actually be.
But fear not for those that get themselves in a fluster while rummaging through their wardrobes. Simon Jersey have come up with a ultimate guide to help you out.
Research conducted on behalf of leading workwear provider Simon Jersey has shown that UK workers could be hampering their own career progression because they don’t understand how to dress in the workplace. The study, which polled 2,000 people, showed that 34% of employees don’t fully understand how to follow a ‘smart casual’ dress code.
