In an increasingly practical society, protocol and etiquette take on new meaning. Before, there was only room to use very formal clothing when going to business meetings. Today, the game has changed, and the word "casual" is taking over. You can dress professionally and formally according to new trends.
Business casual "is less formal than traditional business wear, but is still intended to give a professional and businesslike impression." And this style is taking over offices all over the United States. For example, in many companies, "Casual Fridays" is a well-known event, where people can wear jeans and more informal shirts!
There are many workplaces, especially in creative industries, that allow employees to dress however they want. Clothing is a way to express yourself, and companies are respecting people's personal choices a lot more today.
Characteristics of Business Casual style:
Here's how you can play with business casual outfits to keep it classy but not formal or boring:
- Pick the right shoes
If you're wearing a very formal outfit and want to dress it down a little, going for a pair of sneakers can be the perfect decision. It would be a very casual choice, but it could also look incredible. On the contrary, if you're wearing jeans, maybe a pair of heels is the right accessory to make you look more put together.
We would only go for sneakers on very casual business occasions (for example: in creative environments or if you work at a start-up).
- Irreplaceable basics
White and black cotton t-shirts, denim shirts, denim skirts, and jeans are spectacular pieces that you can mix and match with more typical office clothing pieces.
- All in one fashion
Dresses and jumpsuits are great solutions when you don't know what to wear. They are perfect one-pieces that solve all your problems, perfect for those days when you wake up without a lot of creativity.
