Professional Tip
If you ever see an event where “smart casual” attire is required, think of it as how you’d dress if you want to make a good impression but in a casual setting. Say you're going to Napa Valley Grille to meet your significant other’s parents. You don’t need to be dressed as nice as business casual, but you should look put together. Avoid sweats, athletic wear, T-shirts, shorts and leggings. Nice jeans and a simple top/sweater are perfect! More attire tips here.
