Here are a few occasions where one could rock their semi-formal outfits and still manage to make a fashion statement. Let us delve in without any further ado!
Weddings: Say ‘Yes’ to the Blazers!
It is easy to scourge through the closest and find a blazer, which can almost be paired with any accessory to bring in that 'smart casual' look. Blazers are perfect for experimenting with bold coloured dress shirts, which would match the festive mood.
If blazers are not of preference, then the classic suit would very well fit the occasion!
Daytime Functions: Keep it Easy Breezy!
Classy and breezy outfits would best suit daytime looks, to give a more laid back and relaxed vibe. In that case, smart casuals will be the best choice for any day time function, as one can never go wrong with it!
More subtle hues or neutral tones such as beige, white, and ivory can be incorporated into the outfit to keep it light and suit the daytime look. The outfit can be experimented with patterns and textures, to add more character and a touch of creativity. If not, keeping it simple by wearing a suit jacket and dress shirt will also work perfectly well! For a more relaxed look, dress shoes can be switched for a pair of loafers.
Night-Time Functions: Dressed in The Nines!
It’s Party Time: Loosen Up The Tie!
It is the perfect time to loosen up and get rid of the bow and tie! It allows playing with bold colours, patterns, and textures without limiting themselves, as it will be all about making a fashion statement! But too much of anything is not good. Hence, the outfit must be coordinated consciously to avoid any mishaps. For example, using multiple colours or overlaying more than two or three patterns can lead to a potential fashion disaster.
It is the one time where jeans can be born to a semi-formal event and not feel it's too casual. It will be easy to achieve the party look by pairing the denim jeans with a blazer and throwing in a bold coloured dress shirt along with it.
Fine Dining: Serve Some Looks!
These are some of the occasions where semi-formal outfits are typically worn and are considered an ideal attire.
Conclusion: Don’t Forget to Get Creative!
Fashion is an expression of oneself, and it is imperative to always add a personal touch to any outfit they have fashioned themselves in. It will add character to the clothes and, will make them stand out from the sea of men dressed in almost a similar way. It is not necessary to own high-end clothes or be dressed in haute couture outfits for all occasions to leave an impression.
Even off-the-rack clothes, which can be found in anyone’s closet, can be fashioned in a way that it could become a new trendsetter. A small twist to the outfit can be the game-changer by making it more existing and exquisite.
