Different things, right?
ever so subtly, yes
business casual could go as far as meaning a suit without a tie
smart causual could go to the other end and be a polo neck with chinos
For either, I'd play it safe and wear chinos with an ironed shirt
I like business casual to mean suit trousers with a nice shirt.
Smart casual is much slacker imo. Could even mean jeans and brown shoes or something.
What about business smart!?!!
As far as i understand it the grading goes;
business formal (suit and tie)
business casual (suit and no tie)
smart (chinos and shirt)
smart casual (golf stuff)
casual (jeans + t-shirt)
