Business Causual

Many individuals will have a chance to work in situations where the dress code is more relaxed. The words "business casual" is subject to multiple interpretations depending on the environment.

"Business or workplace casual" means charcoal pants and a white oxford button down shirt and a quality pair of casual shoes for men.

Choose your casual attire carefully, and use your common sense when dressing for work; looking neat should be a priority.

Avoid t-shirts, baseball caps, sunglasses, and don't wear sneakers unless it is the norm.

Don't take "casual dress" too literally. You're better off dressing a bit on the conservative side than on taking a gamble only to find out that your idea of casual does not match that of your employer.
