1. Choose shirts that have collars, such as long-sleeve button down shirts.

Always tuck the shirt in and pair the shirt with an appropriate belt. For business casual, tie is optional.

  • White button-down shirts are the most formal and therefore the safest. Unlike pants, all manner of shirt colors are acceptable: Purple, pink, yellow, blue, and red.
  • Choose shirts (and pants) in “formal” fabric: Cotton is king, and comes in many different flavors. Wool is acceptable, if itchy. Silk, rayon, and linen are frowned upon.
  • Choose shirts in “formal patterns: Oxford, plaid, and poplin are a little less formal, but perfectly acceptable. Twill, herringbone, and broadcloth patterns are more formal and nice to use if sprucing up. Hawaiian and other irregular patterns are considered too casual.

2. Wear pants styles such as khakis, dress pants, trousers and corduroy pants.

Jeans are not considered business casual.

  • Pleated pants and dark colors are more formal, conservative choices. If you want to be on the safe side, overdressing is less frowned upon than underdressing.
  • Pants should extend to the top of your shoe, or slightly longer. Pants that don’t reach down to your shoe are considered high-water pants; pants that fold and bunch up near the feet are considered too baggy.
  • Avoid pants in loud colors such as red, yellow, and purple. Camouflage is not allowed, neither are white pants — they feel a little too informal for even business casual. Stick with black, brown, grey, khaki, dark blue and dark green pants.

3. Consider pairing your shirt with a sweater or sweater vest.

V-neck sweaters work best if wearing a a collar.

  • Turtlenecks can be worn in combination with a blazer for a sleek look and a little bit of novelty.
  • If you want to wear a suit coat and still look business casual, dress it down with khakis instead of suit pants.

4. Select formal leather shoes, and don’t forget the dress socks.

Stick to black, brown, or grey shoes. Oxfords, lace-ups, and loafers are all standards.

5. Study the list of don’ts.

Avoid the following items, which, fortunately or unfortunately, don’t fall under the category of business casual:

  • Sneakers, sandals, flip-flops or other open-toed shoes.
  • Sports shirts, sweatshirts, sport team jackets, and athletic socks.
  • Shorts and capris.
  • Jeans.
  • Very tight, and hence revealing, cuts of pants. No skinny-trousers allowed.

6. More tips

  • Abstain from wearing clothes that are too tight and clothes that are overall too revealing.

  • While business casual by any standard is less dressy than business formal, it is still important to remember that you are dressing for work. This means that you should still look well put together by making sure your clothes are ironed, clean, and free of holes.

  • Remember that business casual still means business and you should look presentable enough to deal with your boss, clients and your fellow employees.

  • If you have a tattoo, try your best to cover it up. That doesn’t mean to wear long sleeved shirts every single day to cover up a tiny symbol on your forearm. Depending on the size and what it is, deem if it is appropriate or not. If so, still cover it up, but you don’t need to stress about it too much. If people see it, it won’t be the end of the world. If it isn’t appropriate, do your best to cover it as you see fit.
