Smart Casual for Retirement Style

Whether classic or chic, there are ways to pull your look together so it’s unique, personal and contemporary.

There are a few factors to make this happen seamlessly and your personal style is key.

Embrace the essence of what makes you unique, stop caring about what others think, and dress the body you have right now! You can pull anything off if you feel confident.

For many West Coast women, a SMART CASUAL wardrobe will work best. Whether you will be travelling, volunteering, visiting grandchildren, dining out, or golfing, smart casual makes sense!


Great fitting pants and jeans are a must. A great fit makes all the difference!

Go for pieces that can be dressed up or down like a crisp ankle pant or dark wash denim.

Basics like tunics, t-shirts and tanks are versatile and indispensable.

Always have a great dress (or two!) for those occasions when you want to dazzle.

Long sweaters, twin sets, and cardigans work well to replace the classic blazer. If you still enjoy blazers, look for jackets in casual fabrics like denim and jersey and pair them with tees and tanks instead of button-up shirts.

Scarves and jewellery add sparkle to basics. Have fun with your accessories!

Don’t be afraid to invest in stand out pieces and rock them! A bold jacket? A dramatic sleeve? Pair them with denim or pull-on pants!

Play with COLOUR, pattern and texture. Metallics brighten your skin tone—don’t be afraid to shine!

Many of us have worn uniforms to work and welcome the chance to play with fun, comfortable and colourful clothing that is easy to care for and makes us feel wonderful.
