Dress codes are in place everywhere; from restaurants and work spots to casual hangouts, dress codes define whether or not you get admitted into the place! But the essence of dress codes can be quite confusing, especially if it’s casual! In this write-up, let’s take a look at some of the major casual dress codes…
Just casual! When it comes to just casuals, pretty much anything informal goes. So, while it’s a yes to jeans and tee shirt, refrain from the torn, tattered or shredded ones! Try to be tasteful yet fashionable. A classic example of the just casual dress code would be a pair of skinny denims with a plaid shirt or a graphic tee with a cardigan-style sweater!
Smart casual! This style tends to border on the dressy side and can mean dressed up versions of the casual dress code. For women, this might mean a curve-hugging maxi skirt, a tank top and a cardigan accessorized with a lot of chains and necklaces for that dressed up look; and for men, a nice pair of trousers and a polo or button-down plaid shirt!
Business casual! This is probably the most confusing among the casual dress codes as it puts together two contradicting words together ‘business’ and ‘casual’! While business casual codes means different things for different age groups, for men, a pair of khakis with printed shirts and a belt with sensible shoes should do and for women, a tailored skirt or pants with a dressy blouse should do the trick!
