Drinks Party

For Cocktail parties  "Smart Casual" is often the dress code which, being an oxymoron, is not very explanatory. Both looks worn to a drinks party hosted by friends of ours were deliberately, but easily,  toned down. In Eleanor's case by simply replacing heels with flats, and in Max's case by replacing suit trousers with a pair of jeans.
