What Not To Wear as Business Casual?

Women have a better choice as compared to men if they want to wear business casual dresses. Opt for conservative and not too revealing. Blouses, plain shirts, cotton shirts, sweaters, turtlenecks, vests, and sleeveless shirts are all acceptable.

  • Avoid low-cut dresses or those with high slits.
  • Avoid dresses (especially) and skirts that are more skin-tight.
  • No sundresses.
  • No jeans, unless otherwise noted. If jeans are allowed by your employer, distressed jeans, jeans with holes, and “boyfriend” jeans are not desirable choices.
  • Neutral colors are best for a business casual woman.
  • Tucked-in or untucked can both go, depending on the shirt.
  • Unusual patterns are acceptable, as long as they are not wild. The standard, however, is a monotone shirt.
  • Use a collar for a more formal look, and collarless shirts for a less formal look.

You can also try footwear such as leather shoes, flat trouser shoes, high heels; no open toed shoes as a perfect business casual woman in your office. Avoid flip flops, sandals and sneakers because they have nothing to do with being business casual. Wearing heels are okay, so long as they aren’t too high to bend your feet and injure you. Many women fall in the offices due to wearing unsuitable heels.
