What is Business Casual?

It's always important to make a good first impression with a potential employer. A thoughtful purchase of business casual attire is truly a worthwhile investment.

Here is a brief guide to business casual style:

 

For Men:

.   Wear a nice pair of dress pants or khakis (no jeans).

.   A button-down shirt, polo, or sweater.

.   Ties and blazers are nice, but not necessary.

.   Don't forget your feet! Think: dress shoes, not tennis shoes.

 

For Women:

.   Choose a blouse, sweater, or twinset. Avoid anything sleeveless, strapless or sequined

.   If you choose to wear pants, go for khakis, dress pants, or cords. Avoid cropped pants or shorts.

.   Dresses and skirts should be at or below the knee.

.   Opt for a modest close-toed pump, loafer, or flat.

.   Any jewelry or accessories worn should be understated.
