  • Written by News Company

Almost everyone coughs up 5 to 10 minutes, figuring out what to wear for work. Don’t you think it is chaotic to decide? Every business environment is poles apart from each other due to which the rules and dress codes are different too. Besides, the standard business attire remains the same – dress shirts and pants!

Unsurprisingly, you would never spot anyone coming out from an office in their tees and shorts, since it is against the business dress code. So, instead of squandering time to put together clothes every morning. Here’s your guide to a different type of business attire, saving time and effort.

What is Business Attire?

Can you wear PJs to a party? Of course not, because it doesn’t confine with the dress code. Everyone is supposed to wear dresses and other party wear. Similarly, there’s a dress code for offices too, famously known as the business attire. Usually, it’s certainly on your job contract.

It’s nothing extravagant, men have to own a couple of business shirts and dress pants, while women are good to go with formal dresses and dress shirts. To make it convenient, take a dig at these types of business attire. Remember to be thoughtful of your office’s dress code.

Professional Attire

Have you ever observed the dress code for ‘bankers’? In short, that’s professional business attire. Everyone has put on suits, with proper ties. Similarly, there are many companies with such strict dress codes too. They have to stick to it in the thin and thick of scorching heat or brisk winter winds. However, it’s different for men and women.

For Men:

  • Dress shirts are a must. Don’t even think of entering your premises without it. As for the color, professional attire is okay with any color until it matches your suit.

  • Dress shirts are not enough, and you have to wear a suit too. Yes, even if the sun is eyeing you directly. Besides, you have to opt for plain ones that also in warm colors. So, you have to stick to darker colors – grey, blue, black, brown, etc.

  • Footwear has to be formal too. Thus, pair it up with dress shoes and plain socks. Instead of getting your hands-on fancier ones, look out for the delicate ones since it’s for office wear, and not for a party.

  • Coming to the accessories, tie, and the belt is mandatory too. Don’t go over the board by selecting a trendy tie because only plain ones are suitable. A mini-fashion tip, pair up your belt with the color of shoes.

For Women:

  • Women can’t wear anything else than formal suits. However, it up to you if you prefer pairing up with dress pants or skirts because all this fits under the category of formal.

  • Dress shirts, preferably white or any other neutral color.

  • Unsurprisingly, women have an exemption from wearing ties or belts though you can if you want.

  • Women are free to wear plain black shoes or coat shoes with heels.

Business Casual Attire

For Men:

  • Button-down shirts are a must with an exception, whether it’s a dress shirt or not.

Semi-Formal Attire

Thus, semi-formal attire gives a red signal to cufflinks, ties, etc. However, the dress code is still rigid, but with some minor exemptions. The majority of the companies and business follow a semi-formal business attire.

For Men:

  • Unlike the professional setting, rather than suits, you can wear blazers.

  • You can’t wear anything else except for formal shoes.

  • For bottoms, there is a choice to choose from pants or skirts.

  • No need to wear blazers or jackets.

  • Any sort of closed heels and shoes are allowed.
