Different Types of Semi Casual Wear
Semi formal is usually a big step down from formal wear and a big step up from ordinary casual wear. Semi formal wear often involves outfits which you could easily wear on a casual day out while still looking much better than a casual self. But when it comes to work, semi formal wear may not necessarily replace the more formal business dress code. This has many reasons such as the fact that most people work in offices anyway and will not be dressing up for work. In fact a lot of people who work in offices tend to dress down. Office attire is usually more business like and less casual, while casual wear is usually more relaxed and comfortable.
One of the most common types of semi casual wear is a t-shirt. A t-shirt can be dressed down or dressed up depending on how you pair it with other items of clothing. If you choose a simple t-shirt and a pair of jeans then pairing it with a nice blazer or jacket can give it an added dash of professionalism. It’s also easy to just leave your t-shirt on if it’s really not necessary, but remember that this type of dress down clothing also tends to be fairly cheap compared to other types of formal wear. A great way to dress down a t-shirt is to wear it to a class or some other event where you know the other people there are going to be professional like. This way you will look dressed down but still be able to afford the piece of clothing.
Other good semi casual outfits include dressy jackets and vests, dark colored trousers, dark colored stockings and tights and light colored skirts. These outfits can easily be dressed down with a nice pair of jeans and dress shoes, but if you want to go dressier then go for a top that is more classic and less stiff. Also, keep in mind that the occasions where you dress down these items of clothing are often more formal than the ones where you just dress up. There are lots of ways that you can get these outfits for a lot cheaper than other casual outfits so remember to look around before you settle on one for any particular occasion.
