The time when men only wore suit or tux to go to events or even going anywhere. Those days are long gone. 

Now, today's modern men prefer to stay stylish and comfortable at the same time. 

So, I see a lot of men wearing just a simple shirt + pant (chinos or trousers) even when they are attending an event or going to party or just strolling on the street. 

Now, I know a ton of fashion blogs still suggest that semi-formal do require you to some kind of blazer jacket or waistcoat. And there's nothing wrong with that. 

But, the semi-formal attire we're discussing for the sake of this post is only shirt + pant outfits. No jackets, no waistcoats, no bling. Just simple shirt and chinos or trousers outfits. 

Now before go ahead and see the semi formal outfits I have curated for you today, let's understand the basic difference between the formal and semi-formal dress code. 

Well, in a way it's pretty easy to spot, right? However, just to understand the difference between the two let's list down a few important things that separate the two.

Essentials You Need To Look Good In Semi Formal Dress Code 

Pants. Depending on your personal style and choice you can pick either trousers or chinos or both in following colours. 

Shirts. Again depending on your personal style and choice you pick either formal or casual shirts. However, make sure the shirt should long enough so you can tuck it in to achieve the perfect semi-formal look. 

Shoes. All the outfits featured here are with sneakers but if you don't prefer wearing sneakers with everything you can switch the sneakers with either loafers or monk shoes. 

  • Sneakers. You can pick any colour you like but stick with minimalist design aesthetics. I prefer to go with white sneakers. They look clean, simple and minimalist.  Shop Now
  • Loafers. You can pick from various different styles of loafers depending on your personal choice. However, I recommend you to stick with tassel or penny loafers. They look classy. Shop Now
  • Monk Shoes. You can go for the double monk or single monk shoes depending on your personal choice. However, I love to pick double monks over single because they look edgier.  Shop Now

Also, add a few matching accessories like a watch, bracelet and belts etc. 

Now, that we've discussed the essentials you'll need to build your perfect semi formal wardrobe, let's look at the outfits I have curated for you today.
