Business Casual Outfits – 5 Business Casual Ideas That Work
Does finding casual business clothes make you pull your hair out in the morning? Are you standing in your closet looking for casual business ideas?
Business casual wear is the fusion of two types of clothing: business clothing and casual wear. The challenge is that the choice of clothing is almost limitless when it comes to combining these styles.
So how can you put together casual business suits that make you look good? Here are 5 tips for success.
1. Don’t think everything will work out
The biggest mistake in putting together a casual business suit is thinking you can wear whatever you want. This may work for a few days. But soon you’ll realize you’re running out of things to wear.
2. Plan your wardrobe
You should plan your business casual wardrobe in the same way as a formal business wardrobe. You need to think about your needs, your body shape and personality, and your work environment. Then you should shop carefully to put together a wardrobe that won’t cause you grief every morning when you wonder what to wear.
3. Capsule wardrobe
The best way to do this is to build a capsule wardrobe based on a neutral palette of navy blue, grey, or black. Gather some basic items like a jacket and pants or a skirt that fits. Now you’re ready to add color and accessories to match your work style. That way you’ll always have something to wear and know that all the pieces of your suit will fit.
4. Keep a separate wardrobe
Don’t mix your weekend clothes with your casual business clothes. You’ll end up wearing the clothes you wore on the weekend to walk your dog or go shopping. If you don’t have time to clean and iron them, you won’t look polished and professional at work.
5. Keep your outfits simple
Combine a crisp shirt or blouse or a nice sweater with pants or a skirt that fits you, in a neutral color. Add some accessories, such as a good watch, a classic necklace or earring for women, a good briefcase or leather bag, and you’re ready to work.
