Summer Smart Casual: 3 Getup Ideas for the Office, Date Night, and Weddings

The summer season is just about upon us, and its warmer weather means switching up your wardrobe towards a lighter summer style.

When people typically think about dressing for the summer, they think about dressing for trips to the lake or beach or for backyard BBQs with friends. Getups for those sorts of events are pretty dang easy: a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, or a polo shirt if you want to be a bit dressier, will usually do the trick.

But what about situations that require a little more polish? How can you summer-fy your smart casual outfits?

Our buddies over at Huckberry have updated their smart casual offerings to include options for warmer weather. Below they’ve put together three summer smart casual outfits that will cover you for the office, date night, and a wedding.

All of these outfits keep things light, breezy, and casual, while adding an element of stylish intentionality that will ensure you look sharp and elevate the occasion.

Be sure to check out all of Huckberry’s summer smart casual offerings in their Smart Casual Shop.

Summer Smart Casual: The Office

For a summer smart casual office outfit, find a light casual jacket. It will add a bit of professionalism, while still keeping things casual. Pairing it with a knit polo can really bring texture to your outfit, and texture is one of the easiest ways to introduce visual interest to a plainer getup.

Luckily this outfit provides a more relaxed look while also showing you’ve put in some effort!
