What Is a Dress Code for Upscale Casual?

Premium casual is a semi-formal outfit that combines upscale elements with comfortable, more casual pieces, such as skinny-leg khakis, heels, and a good blouse for women or jeans with a V-neck shirt and jacket for men. Avoiding some types of clothing is just as important as wearing others while dressing in an upscale casual style.

For an upmarket casual dress code, men shouldn’t wear T-shirts by themselves or rubber-soled shoes, but dark jeans or slacks, collared shirts, and blazers are OK. Flip-flops are never classy, regardless of the gender.

Little black dresses and black slacks are fantastic upscale casual wardrobe essentials for women that can be dressed up with jewellery and high heels or dressed down with flats.
