job training- smart casual? - February 8th 2015, 06:06 PM

Hey

so I have a training day on wednesday for working in a shop where I've been asked to wear something smart casual. Enough to look professional but expressing individuality and creativity.

I only have casual clothes and the only outfit I could possibly fit together for smart casual was worn last week the interview of the shop (it's a music shop so I can't get discount on any clothes haha).

Please help? I don't really have anything to wear and idk what to buy??

I would start with something business casual and then find a way to show your individuality. So like dress pants or khakis and a nice shirt, but find a way for it to show your personality? I've never heard of this before so that's the best I can do.

well, jeans and t-shirt are casual enough, but if you add a jacket - it will be more (though not too much) official.

the same comes to girls: a dress with a jacket look nice and not "over-official" ;-)

So, no need to worry about that! Good luck with your job!

I'm thinking something like you should be wearing a shirt ("smart"), but that shirt can be colourful or have interesting designs ("individuality").

Feel free to PM me if you ever need anything.
