Thank you to Walmart and LTK for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
In recent years, a style has emerged that has grown in popularity, especially in the workplace. It’s called “Smart Casual”. The term can be kind of confusing, since is a mix of two words that are opposites of each other! So what is “Smart Casual” style and how do you wear it? Let’s define what “Smart Casual” is, where you wear it and look at a capsule wardrobe with several outfits. Smart Casual is a blend of two styles. The “Smart” is refers to business workwear style and the “Casual” refers to everyday, comfortable style. Smart Casual gives you more flexibility with your outfits and is suitable to wear more places that just the workplace.
I found several clothes and shoes on Walmart which are perfect for a smart casual wardrobe! I created a mini capsule wardrobe that includes tops, bottoms, layers and shoes, plus accessories, all on Walmart! Walmart is a great place to find affordable clothes, shoes and accessories that is easy on your budget. Whether you are just starting to build your closet with workwear or you want to add several smart casual outfits to your closet, shop Walmart first to find your foundation pieces for the fall season. Walmart carries both their exclusive brands that you cannot find anywhere else, like Free Assembly, Scoop, Time and Tru (my personal favorite), plus Lands End, Sophia Jeans by Sophia Vergara and Madden NYC.
What Styles Are Smart Casual?
Smart Casual style includes well-fitted, neat and office-appropriate pieces that are slightly less formal than a business-casual or business-professional dress code. Smart casual is much more elevated and put-together than just casual wear.
Here are a few “Smart” example pieces you can include in your outfits:
- tailored blazer
- sweater blazer
- trench coat
- structured bag or work tote
- simple leather belt
Here are a few “Casual” example pieces you can include in your outfits:
- t-shirt / tee (a slim-fitted one looks best)
- non-distressed jeans (medium wash or dark wash)
- button-down shirt
- casual sneakers
Where To Wear Smart Casual
