What is Business-casual, and am I doing it right?


Business attire used to be a no-brainer. You shaved, slapped some cologne on and slipped in to one of many black or navy suits. It was hard to make a fashion gaffe with this kind of dress etiquette in the workplace, because it was so damn simple. But now, the rules have loosened up and men take a more casual approach… depending on their profession. It’s important to remember just because your office holds ‘Margarita Friday’, doesn’t mean you can dress like you’re on holiday. Here’s our 5-point guide to ensure you’re doing business-causal correctly.

1.. Be clean-cut: Casual dressing is no excuse for looking sloppy, so make sure you’re well groomed. Keep your hair and beard in good shape, and slap on your favourite cologne every morning before you leave the house.


2. When in doubt, opt for a suit: If you’re unsure about the attire for a business meeting, keep it simple and look like you belong. Don’t take the risk of dressing down, as in some environments this isn’t perceived as professional.


3. The level of formality: Remember, overdressing is always the safer bet. By overdressing, you compliment your clients and represent your company in a way that’s considered ‘above and beyond’.


4. Don’t limit your opportunities: It’s important you always dress in line with your superiors, and never more causally than your subordinates. The more you dressed in a relaxed manner, the less you look like someone who can be an authority figure in the workplace.


5. Never compromise on quality: Whatever you wear to work, ensure the workmanship behind the garment is second-to-none. Buy the best quality you can afford, and see it as an investment.

    Appreciating the time and effort you put into your site and in depth information you provide.
    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old
    rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
