The Fashion Girl’s Guide to a Business Casual Dress Code

Welcome back to this month’s Style Guide series, where each week in April I’m highlighting stylish and functional apparel codes for your professional wardrobe. To refresh your memory, then our current blog theme is Function It. Therefore, whether you’re a professional professional or already in the workforce, my staff and I are bringing you weekly blog articles specializing in everything from polishing your résumé to growing your business. On top of the daily to do’s and basic workload, looking the part should always be thrown into the mix. I broke down company formal basics, and next up I’m bringing one of the business casual dress code.
The do’s and don’ts of professional workwear can be complicated, but once you have them down you are guaranteed to have a dress you can be pleased with. The very first thing that you ought to familiarize yourself with is the own setting. If everyone is dressed to the nines every time they step into the office, you should revisit my business formal article. If it comes to business casual, some offices are as relaxed as wearing jeans or a bit more dressed in khakis and knee length dresses. Company casual warrants a bit more freedom in regards to your work outfit, but you should still mention the pressed and clean lines of business formal.
Dresses are always a safe bet when it comes to the workplace. For business casual, you have the choice to play prints and colors even though solids are always a fantastic idea, also. Paired with the ballet flats and cardigan options below, you’ll be all set.
