Jackets Required TV Presents: Episode 34 – What is Business Casual?

Welcome to Jacket’s Required, hello, I’m Dominic Lacquaniti, designer and tailor.
On this week’s episode of Jackets required TV I’m going to tackle the age old question of what exactly IS “Business Casual”?
Basically it refers to a style of dress that is less formal than regular business attire but still gives a professional relaxed business impression.

So what does that mean and how do you dress for it?

Appropriate business casual typically includes slacks or khakis, dress shirt or blouse, open-collar or polo shirt, optional tie or seasonal sport coat, a dress or skirt at knee-length or below, a tailored blazer, knit shirt or sweater, and loafers or dress shoes that cover all or most of the foot. The more modern end of the spectrum allows for dress jeans as well.

And in Florida – for women, a more open shoe is also acceptable. And the Golden Rule applies here as well – make sure it fits. It’s all about the FIT.

The mystery of business casual dress code is now solved – you’re welcome!
