It's okay to be casual, but not too casual.

As an entrepreneur, you have the luxury of setting the professional tone in the office, and that includes the dress code. In today’s business world, business casual is often the norm, but just how casual is business casual?  Here are some quick tips to help define what’s hot and what’s not.

It's okay to be casual, but not too casual.

Jeans are acceptable as long as they are not overly worn out (no holes, please).  Pair the casualness of denim with a comfortable blazer or sweater and button down shirt up top. Sneakers are not considered professional enough, but loafers are, as long as they are aren’t scuffed and are in good condition. For women, pair your jeans with a fitted jacket or trendy top and statement jewelry. Elevate jeans with a pair of classy heels.

Start with the basics.

Invest in a couple of classic wardrobe pieces that can be accessorized in many ways. The little black dress, a wrap dress, a pencil skirt, and a pair of straight-legged pants could be staples in a woman’s casual wardrobe, white and blue button down shirts, crewneck sweaters, wrinkle-free khakis and cashmere blazers could provide the basis for a man’s business casual attire.
