Dressing smart/casual has always confused me but then I discovered the velvet suit, says Jane Moore

THE dress code “smart casual” always flummoxes me. But if there’s an outfit that encapsulates the description perfectly then it has to be a velv

THE dress code “smart casual” always flummoxes me.

But if there’s an outfit that encapsulates the description perfectly then it has to be a velvet-look suit.

This velvet suit finally solved my smart/casual dilemma[/caption]

This one, in deep red with ruched sleeves, could be dressed up for a winter wedding with a silk shirt underneath, or dressed down – as shown here – with a plain polo neck sweater or even a smart, long-sleeved T-shirt.

Either way, velvet looks classy and gives the impression of making an effort, but also keeps you warm and comfortable if the venue’s a bit chilly.

After all, how many times have we turned up somewhere in a slinky frock and ended up having to keep our coats on because someone forgot to switch on the heating?

This suit has a loose, rather than tailored, style and the trousers have good length for anyone who, like me, is taller than average.


I have teamed it with a pair of sparkly court shoes – very “in” at the moment – for that extra smart look.

Classy, warm and comfortable. Suits me.
