What is Business Casual?
Pants – Bottoms usually of a cotton, polyester, wool, corduroy or a blend of materials. These items are commonly known as trousers, dress pants and slacks (no denim).
Tops – Blouses, button-ups, collared shirts, sweaters, cardigans with camisoles, decorative or simple shirts (no graphic tees), all of these are versatile business casual pieces.
Skirts/Dresses – Options for skirts and dresses are endless – pencil, A-line, high waist, etc. – just make sure hemlines are not too short. A good hem length rule of thumb is two inches above the knee; any shorter and it becomes inappropriate for work.
Shoes – Heels and flats are good choices to complement a business casual outfit but sneakers are not.
