What Is Dressy Casual Attire? Dressy casual attire (also called smart casual) is a combination of relaxed and refined pieces – think blouses, dress shirts, button-downs, dress pants, dark jeans, and clean shoes or sandals.

A Casual suit is a loose term for women, but it generally means that a formal dress or outfit is required.

However, it isn’t quite as formal as black tie, so something like a pant suit or floral pattern could be acceptable.

For men, it’s a lot simpler and means a suit worn with a tie. For women, dressy casual attire can offer more flexibility when assembling the perfect look.
