The beautiful Louise asked me on Facebook to do a post on Work Wear. More importantly to clarify the difference between “Business Casual” and “Smart Casual” dress codes.
So today I am going to give you some ideas on dressing for Business Casual.
First, you may ask, what is “Business Casual”?
After spending time trying to define it, the best definition I found is “A Classic, Clean Cut, and put together look where a full suit is not required”.
With that in mind, for a man it means no tie or suit jacket. It means Chinos are acceptable and polo shirts and sweaters but no sportswear or open toe shoes.
For ladies, it means a hem line just above the knee, chinos, trousers, tops (like the one from Penneys below).
And if all else fails ask yourself, would I wear it to a nightclub? If the answer is Yes put it back in the wardrobe.
I really like my few picks. I hope you do too.
