Smart casual is a term that’s thrown around so loosely that people have started to forget what it actually is. Smart casual is generally fashion that is neat but not too formal. So it’s not hard to see why people can get confused on what smart casual is because everyone’s take on ‘neat’ and ‘formal’ is different. As is everyone’s fashion taste. In this blog post i’m going to be taking one the challenge of redefining smart casual through very affordable yet great clothing from River Island. With a spotlight on the River Island Ribbed Polo Shirt.
River Island is a great shop that offers something for everyone. From their coats to their suits to their shoes, the brand image is luxury on an affordable budget. This is something I really enjoy and appreciate from a high street store. This past year River Island have started to take more notice of the current fashion trends and implement their own version of the said trends. The perfect example is their ribbed polo shirt collection (pictured above). The polo collection comes in so many different colours, from the neutral colours such as the white polo above and one of my personal favourites a subtle pink.
The polo’s are perfect asset to a smart casual outfit due to the ability to both dress up and down the polo. Partnering the outfit with either a pair of jeans or some pants can change how formal you want the outfit to be. The polo’s are currently in the River Island sale coming down from £20 to £10! They are such a steal and fit incredibly well to any body shape, with the material being quite thin it enables the polo to be perfect for the summer months. I’ll definitely be taking them on my holiday around the Greek Islands in August (with many snaps to come).
You can find the p0lo shirt’s in all variety of colours right here!
