Business Casual dressing – What is it?
Business casual is what people normally call a clothing style that is used in most of all businesses. This style keeps a very fresh look while maintaining professionalism. It is sometimes something that people confuse with other terms. This style is not informal in any way; it is just not made out necessarily of black tuxedos and ties. There some basic requirements that some companies obligate people to respect. Some styles have to be respected, and most of all companies require one or some of the following things:
-When it is about jeans, companies not always accept them as casual business outfits. However, khaki slacks are always a good option to wear at work. It is not very formal, and it is not informal either. So it is a great choice if you want to dress casually for businesses.
-Colored shirts always look great on khakis. The best thing about colored shirts is that they don’t require using any ties or accessories. Normally color shirts are polo style or classic fit, semiformal, short sleeve shirts. They are very good choices for you to wear at work with a pair of khakis.
– If you don’t’ want to stick to the khaki slacks and you want to vary a little when it comes to shirts, you can always consider any base white formal shirts. They are normally the perfect option for any man.

– Socks are something you have to wear carefully. Your socks have to always be dark and not white. They have to be middle length or long, as it is not acceptable to be showing your legs when sitting down in a business.
