What is Business Casual?
We all know that the business world is everchanging, and with that comes adjustments in traditional business attire. The workplace environment is becoming more laid back but that does not mean one’s professional appearance immediately diminishes.
I’m Still Not Sure?
There has been confusion regarding what is considered business casual versus regularly casual clothes. The standards are different for men and women, but there are no rules when it comes to self-expression. It is difficult for employees to understand what a casual dress code is, but it is not their fault. There is no clear-cut definition. But that’s the freedom of it!
- No denim/jeans
- No spaghetti strapped blouses
- No flip flops
- Avoid clothes with offensive language and logos
- No graphic pictures
Your outfit should be clean, pressed, and fit properly. No matter what, you are representing on behalf of an organization that is trusting you to present yourself in a professional and expressive manner. If you ever have questions regarding workplace attire, don’t hesitate to ask your peers or reach out to your human resource manager for assistance.
Until then, express yourself!
