    Hi

    Going to a clubbing event and dress code is smart casual & no trainers.

    Now I'm thinking dark navy blue trousers, belt, white shirt (tucked in) and black shoes.

    Would this be ok?

    With blue trousers definitely go with brown shoes, brogues or something if you have them. Your top half might be a little boring bit you can accessorise a but, say with a nice watch or some jewellery. Ideally though wear a shirt with a bit of colour, if nothing else white is high risk when there's drinks around.

    Problem is right, I'm fine with shirts and jeans but apart from trainers, I only have loafers - I don't think they would go well.

    It's fine. They're both not and smarter than trainers.

    Can't say I'm a fan of that shirt, but go with some slim, very dark jeans. As someone said above blue denim and brown shoes (or tan or even oxblood) are the optimum combination, but black can work if the jeans are very very dark. Your belt must match your shoes or it's a fashion faux pas by default.
