There are casual outfits, but then there are smart casual outfits. Smart casual embodies a look of class and sophistication… appropriate for the midlife years. In these outfits, I have simply paired a blazer with jeans to create a smart casual look appropriate for women in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond. Shop these outfits here.

Midlife women love a pretty pink blazer, don’t we? It seems like every time I post an outfit with a pink blazer that the jacket sells out immediately. Here I have paired this cotton blazer from J.Crew (runs small) with a ruffle blouse from Vince Camuto and my most favorite, super soft Wit and Wisdom boyfriend jeans. Heels always elevate a look…and a designer handbag is the perfect finishing touch. Shop this outfit here.

This next outfit is one of my best selling outfits of all time. This super cozy sweater blazer is back in stock. Do not be distracted by the buttons as J Crew changes up the buttons every year – it is the same cut of blazer. Pair it with a simple striped T-shirt and SOFT cropped jeans by Wit and Wisdom. Elevate your style with a Tory Burch logo belt, Loafers, and haute handbag. Shop this outfit here.
