There are so many terms for casual wear these day that it can be a bit confusing. Casual wear is such a catch all that there seems to be subcategories to define all aspects of casual clothing. Today we talk about atheleisure, business casual and even elevated casual (just to name a few) to define our leisure look. It is that last category, elevated casual, that I seem to be drawn toward.
I have to admit that I have not really gotten into the atheleisure looks. While I think it’s great for some, I’m not sure that it works or me. Although never say never as I’ve been known to sport a great sneaker from time to time. And when I hear business casual, I always envision the oversized polo with ill fitting khakis. When a lot of companies went business casual that became the standard work uniform. Yuck! I think that’s why I gravitate towards an elevated casual look.
For me elevated casual means a look that’s casual but not too casual but also not overly dressy. It’s a look that’s great for a variety of occasions. Perfect for the office, a great way for travel and is the ideal date night look. Think fitted polos with slim cut khakis or maybe a pair of statement pants or shoes. Because we are in a transitional weather period don’t forget a great jacket. Even your coat can become part of your elevated casual look. The tie is optional but don’t be afraid to don one from time to time.
