How to Wear: Business-Casual

In one of my classes I'm required to wear business-casual clothing several times this semester. I think for some, including me, it is kind of hard to tell what the difference is. In my opinion, I believe there isn't too much of a difference, for girls at least. For guys it's simple, just wear some nice pants, maybe khakis, and a button down shirt compared to a usual suit that is business-professional.

Now here is the difference for women: you don't need the blazer or heels. Flats will look just as good with either dress pants or a pencil skirt. I personally prefer pencil skirts and just got my first pair of black dress pants the other day, knowing I'll be needing them more often than I used too. Be sure to wear a dressy top. This could include a sleeveless shirt with a cute pattern, or maybe even ruffles. You could also wear a cap sleeved top, or a long sleeve if it's cold. It's nice to not have to wear the added blazer if you're not a huge fan of dressing up.


If you're feeling colorful, this is a great option
for business casual for business casual. The flats
are a great choice. If you're not into color,
you could substitute either the cardigan or skirt
for a more neutral color.

The look to the right is great if you're
wearing dress pants. The top 
is sophisticated and since the colors are neutral it looks great together.
