A Woman's Guide to Business-Casual Dress

There is a difference between business casual and just plain casual. In fact, dressing too casually can even cause some bosses to think that you are not serious about your job and therefore not promote you. On top of that, the more casually you dress, the more casually people will treat you in the office. This is bound to cause some, completely avoidable, tension in the workspace.

Business casual must always include high-quality pieces, hose or socks, appropriate underwear, footwear in good repair, coordinated accessories, clean, styled hair and makeup for women. With that in mind, let's take a look at the type of footwear is considered business casual to finish off your outfit.

Moreover, while opting for skirts, be extra careful about their lengths. A skirt meant to be worn to office on an informal occasion should be no shorter than knee length while standing and should cover the thighs while sitting down. 

Similarly, do not go for low waist pants as such that are available in the women's apparel section of various clothing women stores. You can wear black opaque stocking with a skirt. They hide everything and make all women's legs look long and slim. Best of all, they are in style right now, and never go out of style.


Fashion is a big part of daily life so looking good not only for work but for outside events, dinner parties, and other important events can be imperative for your self esteem. When picking out your clothes for work make sure that you don't have anything else on your calendar for that day that may require you to dress a bit differently.

The business casual look allows young women to bring out their creative style and work out whatever they have in their wardrobe. They do not necessarily have to buy new outfits. They can just simply make use of the existing ones they have in their closet. Choose handbags with lots of color that look more like weekend carriers rather than something you would take to a job interview.
