Smart casual outfits for mature women – lookbook
I said that if you want to style outfits for smart casual, you need to be elegant. But also you still should look comfortable to make it look more casual as well.
These flare pants are the piece that you can create many outfits with. You can create smart casual looks with pants similar to this. You don’t have to buy anything. I just put them together as a reference.
Flare pants are great for mature women. Because they seem to be the most flattering piece for you. It creates body shape with more elegant curves. By the way, it’s one of the fashion trends that you need to follow this year.
Pairing classy pants with a button-down shirt makes the outfit more casual. But in fact, they both make a pretty polished look, that is gonna look perfect on you.
Accessorizing smart casual outfits is very important. Because it changes the whole warmth of the look.
So, use whatever you have in your wardrobe or if you don’t have any of them, you can definitely shop from my lookbook. Use some accessory with every single smart casual outfit, to make it even chicer.
Blazer is the essential of a smart casual dress code for any age. But you don’t have to use it for professional-looking outfits. You need to use it as a casual piece (I know, it’s not casual but still).
So, this outfit has three pieces of dressy style. Others, like blazer and boots, are to give a more informal look to the outfit.
Pieces with ruffles, ruches, and other details like them are amazing for mid-age women. Why? Because it’s time when most of our weight goes to the tummy area. So, these details help you to hide those parts and so, they make you look slimmer.
A leather jacket is a casual piece in your smart casual outfit. It is the piece that every woman should have in a wardrobe despite age, of course. A leather jacket is awesome to put everything together in your look.
Not only that but also it makes you look so stylish and chic. I think it’s even making you look two times younger. So, why you should miss that? You should definitely use it in your smart casual looks.
A leather jacket is an essential piece in fall for women over 40. But the thing is, it’s not the only piece you should have in your fall wardrobe. There are some other things that I included in my other post. Don’t forget to check it out!
You can use a button-down shirt instead of ruffle tops. They look amazing together as well.
You can create an outfit with a silk shirt and a leather jacket. They will be a great combination too.
But agree with me, a beautiful button-down shirt and skirt is another perfect combination, right? So, do it.
Start creating a smart casual look with a skirt. Then pair it with something more casual. To be the closest to smart casual attire, you need to find that smart casual piece still elegant. That’s why I decided to contain this shirt in this lookbook.
If you don’t want to wear heels all the time, you can go for flats like the one I found for the outfit. You just need to find the one that is gonna look dressy and classy.
But here is another thing. If you choose every piece that is classy and elegant, then you can go for sneakers. You can wear sneakers with a skirt, pants, or jeans and if you balance everything right in your look, you can create really amazing smart casual outfits.
Besides elegancy, the key to smart casual is to find the most minimal pieces for your outfit. Minimalism creates that elegancy.
In smart casual, it’s not restricted to wear jeans, unlike business casual. So, you can easily create stunning smart casual outfits with them.
I love the combination of denim jeans and a blazer. It looks so stylish on every woman. And it is the perfect combination of the smart casual look.
I don’t wanna mention age too many times, because there is not anything inappropriate either for mid-age or young women. I mean, there are outfits that you can wear without any worries while you are a woman over 40.
I can tell you more, those are the pieces that make you look stylish and younger. So, use them to create smart casual outfits or use something similar that you already own.
Can you create smart casual outfits without dress? No, you can’t.
Why? Because the dress is the piece that you can always use as a classy piece. If you choose something minimal that’s gonna be just awesome.
But minimalistic outfits need more accessories to get the completed look. You can find some ideas on how to accessorize the black dress outfits in my older post. You can find accessories that you are gonna love there too. So, it’s worth checking out.
Dress and coat is another perfect combination of smart casual. There are coats that look more casual and there are some which are totally classy. You can decide which one you prefer depending on other pieces of the outfit.
If you already check out my other post about smart casual, you probably already know why I am saying that you need to find some classy and some casual pieces to create a perfect smart casual outfit.
Here is the formula that I explained in another post, to understand it even easier.
- Choose something dressy – a piece that is very polished, classy, and elegant. That’s gonna be the main piece for you.
- Now, choose the piece that is casual – not like flip flops, but still. It can be jeans, a basic tee, sneakers, and things like that.
- And the last step is to find some accessories – you need to find accessories that help you balance the outfits as a smart casual. Designer looking sunglasses and watches are perfect accessories for smart casual outfits, especially at your age.
