Ever wondered what ‘smart casual’ means? Well, you no longer need to scratch your head, we’ve got you covered. With Dubai’s clubbing dress code requiring smart-casual attire and causing confusion all around, we decided to bring you up to speed with what smart casual is all about.

It’s all about balancing professionalism and social adeptness and looking smart while also being comfortable.
