Smart casual

Smart casual usually means any daytime event like a baby shower, kid’s birthday party, or even free dress day at school. The best way to tackle this is by keeping it trendy and polished. Opt for sneakers, shorts, and a button-up shirt for the boys. For girls, sandals, a floral dress, and a hair accessory will do the trick.


No need to get your hands on a tuxedo just yet, semi-formal sits right in between smart casual and formal attire. Think engagement parties, milestone birthdays, and in some cases, family get-togethers. We recommend looking at Blue Sky Kids selection of kids clothing, (you can shop their entire range here) they have everything from shoe choices to accessories.

The best way to transition from smart casual to semi-formal is through the fabric, avoid knit, soft cotton, and linen – these materials are too casual for semi-formal events. Instead, select dresses made with tulle and chiffon for the little princesses, and you’ll always be safe with a chino option for the boys.


If you’ve got a formal event on the calendar, then we bet you’re on the hunt for a perfect outfit for your little one.
