    My school farewell is taking place soon and i need to dress Smart Casual, I usually like formal wear but i have no choice this time.

    I just bought myself a cool jacket (blue) and a blue formal kind of shirt (check the image)

    I'm going to wear blue jeans and black shoes.

    Should i use a tie or no tie? I'm also quiet tall and thin, so I am just not sure if this outfit will work for me...

    You are going to wear jeans? WTF

    Use the jacket, same color for the trousers and don't wear a tie or a bow, since it increases your age. Last, but not least, wear some light color shoes, like grey and not too black...

    Good Luck!

    Just wear the blazers and jeans with a dress belt/shoes. Not really necessary to have a tie.

    Go download some episodes of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy :) Or, ask any woman around who isn't gothic-looking.

    Forget the tie....jeans and a tie? Unless you are going the "Texas" route with a bolo tie, I'd say that's a big no.

    [​IMG] + black slacks (ditch the jeans) + chuck taylors (I know it's not for everyone but they go great with almost anything and fit that casual look)

    If you want to get noticed, wear white shoes. Or if you want to scream attention wear some brightly coloured shoes, something tasteful and fits your style. Sounds like you're in high school, you can break some rules :)

    You can wear the jacket with jeans. The jeans just needs to be a different color than the jacket. The jacket also needs to be open, don't button it.

    I'm not sure what kind of shirt you have there, I can't really see.
