    This probably seems like a ridiculous question since nobody cares what I wear, but I'm going on a school trip and the dress code is smart casual (I never know what dress codes actually mean). Any suggestions as to how close I can get to casual without crossing the border? I was thinking bomber jacket.

    No, it isn't, if by bomber jacket you mean a short, belt level jacket with a gathered waistband.

    Smart casual is like a shirt and a pair of good jeans, blazer optional. On your feet avoid trainers, shoes or boots are better.

    Edit: you're female so you have a lot more scope than my advice but you still can't go far wrong with it.*

    I mean this one http://www.selectfashion.co.uk/cloth...003_khaki.html but the one I got is a lot more oversized (I ended up getting size 16 instead of size 10, you can call me crazy )

    That's casual, not smart casual.

    Generally no but frankly if it's for a school trip and it's a bit chilly out, I doubt they would really care unless you attend a posh school.
