First of all thank you for opening this question. I genuinely need an advise. I have been invited to my my friend's birthday party, which he does for his business partners and other important people and friends.

It won't be formal, so no ties, but I still need to look smart. I'm 35. I have no sense for fashion. Where would you suggest to go and buy the dress? In ideal world I want to come to a shop and a shop assistant will tell me: “You need this, this, this and these shoes” and I'll simply buy all of it. I have nobody to ask, nobody to take with me. Is the NEXT good start? Where else?

Thank you for all suggestions.

Check out ASOS online. They do some decent stuff at relatively low prices.
If you want to go to a shop, get yourself into topman or river island but If I was you I'd ask for their definition of smart.
Smart could be anything from open neck shirt with a jacket and trousers or smart jeans, shirt and blazer.
Personally I'd go for second option.
I'm the same age as yourself if that helps.

Thanks a lot. Smart jeans, shirt and blazer sound very good, that's what they were talking about. I'll start with these shops. I'll need a help from shop assistant, hence I can't shop online. Many thanks again.

Anybody else?

Look at the second pic for a rough idea. river island

I think Next would be a good start. Personally I would go late evenings when the shop is quiet. find a kindly assistant, and just be honest and ask for suggestions for smart casual. They usually have someone who can put a few outfits together for you with different colour suggestions. Try everything on and buy what is comfortable for you and also items that you can wear again to go with things you already own. Suede lace up shoes might be good option as they can be worn with chinos or jeans, open necked shirt and casual jacket might be a good look.
Enjoy the party!

If there's one near you, Charles Tyrwhitt is good for business casual.

I love your honesty about not having any fashion sense. I agree with previous posters about next, maybe river island or topman. Maybe you could google "smart casual men" or "informal smart menswear" and view a few images for inspiration. I definitely find it helps to have a rough idea of the "look" you're going for before you go shopping. Personally I'd go with some nice chinos, open neck shirt (with a small button down collar as opposed to a large one) and a smart/casual blazer type jacket. That's just from a female perspective. Enjoy the party.

Pop into primark, you may be surprised.

Here's a basic starter. Get some slim/skinny fit trousers in black/dark navy (just make sure they are not too tight on you), then get some black suede desert boots (Asos do them from around £23-26), get yourself a nice fitted but not too tight plain white T-shirt. To finish it all off you could get yourself a dark coloured wool blazer jacket. With this setup you'll look smart but very chilled and casual at the same time. Hope that helps dude.

Bit of humour :Try Scotland, I hear men wear dresses up there!

shop assistants don't have time to advise you unless you go to an expensive shop where there are personal shoppers, which I would assume is not your case. I would suggest look at the models in the windows in all the shops, as they are always dressed cool to attract the punters, so that is the look.

I'd go for chino's and shirt from Charles Tyrwhitt. http://www.hotukdeals.com/vouchers/ctshirts.com
Register on their site and they usually send you a £10 voucher. :)

What is your budget ?

Sure browse high street stores and use google but please no chinos and desert boots, it's 2017.

I'm sure somebody in the shop will help him out whatever store he goes into as most times i go into a shop they drive me mad with "can i help you sir" as mostly they are just standing around twiddling their thumbs not looking busy.

Guess it depends on where you are located. I tend to shop in busy city areas where the shop are full of customers, Oxford Circus in central London for example, and it is difficult to get anyone to advise you on what look you need. Fair enough, they will show you a shirt or trousers you need, but to spend time advising you on your entire attire and comment on how you look in them once you have been to the dressing room to try the clothes on, I doubt they would have time for this.

This is what the OP wants really. Someone to advise what would look good on him and when he puts the clothes on, they do look good on him or not. I dress my husband and my brother and I go around to the shops with them :3

Just an update: A shop assistant in NEXT spent about two hours with me with just short breaks.
I have thanked her and the store manager, the manager was over the moon. I'll write a review about the shop, as this is exactly what customers like me need.
I'm going shopping today as well and will see, what I'll find. Many thanks, people. That was the first time, when shopping wasn't stressful and horrible experience. I'm glad I could ask for a help :)
Carry on with ideas, if you still have some.
