What is dressy casual style?
Dressy casual is a form of dress code that stays between business casual and semi-formal.
It requires experience and detail oriented approach to be pulled off effectively.
Simple example is stated above in the picture.
Typical matching consists of a lounge suit (navy preffered,do not go with the black suit,
black suits give funeral look,leave black monochromatic look for women to play with it,
black elegance looks good on females,navy suit gives men power and energy),
black shoes (in this case I wear black Chelsea boots because they give me flexibility being
formal and casual shoes at the same time,you can try combinations with black derby shoes,
I would stay away from brogued wingtips while being dressy casual),navy dress shirt
(must have in the male wardrobe,you can try with white dress shirt or light blue shirt)
and black waistcoat (you can go without waistcoat if you want).
Importance of dressy casual is impecable.
Style comes from West and is also worn in Europe.
It gives that feel of maturity and it is not recommended to be worn with tie.
Ties give more business causal or even smart casual look in that case.
You want to find the right balance.
Dressy casual during cold days and winter
Simple layering with navy coat jacket during cold weather secures good.
Yes,it was almost end of the March (third week of a month actually) but it was cold outside.
No matter how good your combination is,you need to layer yourself properly.
I added navy coat jacket so I am warm and comfortable also during bad weather.
This can give you the freedom to unbutton coat jacket during daily climate oscilations.
Don't go with the camo puffer jacket over dressy casual outfit during winter.
It will make you look unstylish and non articulate.
Layer your dressy casual style with navy coat (formal) or navy coat jacket (formal and casual).
