About a decade ago it was easy to know what to wear to any occasion. If you were going to a wedding you couldn’t wear jeans. You had to wear your Sunday best to a wedding. But now the rules are changing people are even getting married in jeans and sneakers. In the business world to look professional you had to wear suits and formal dresses in order to look professional (apart from the creative industry). But things have changed with time and now there is a concept called smart casual.
