Dress Code Casual – Easy One!

Dress Code Casual – Introduction

You just got another invitation and you’re not sure how to dress up? Don’t worry, today we have an easy one. This particular dress code usually pops up when you’re supposed to show up casual, but still tidy.

There is always a reason if you find the word ‘dress code’ on your invite. It means that the promoter, your friend or whoever invites you, asks for a common theme.

After talking about the dress codes ‘smart casual’ and ‘business casual’, we will now cover the easiest one: the dress code casual.

Dress Code Casual – Explained

Well… the word ‘casual’ describes it perfectly: you’re allowed to enjoy a lot of freedom and flexibility. The other two dress codes contain more rules and restrictions.

Alright, as we said: take it easy and relax. Still, it might be a bit weird to wear flip flops or swim trunks, a snapback or similar. So, we do have a recommendation for you to follow the dress code casual:

  • Polo Shirt or normal shirt
  • Jeans or chinos
  • Sneakers
  • Jacket or blazer if it gets colder

Yes, there are plenty of other options too, there are so many ways to dress up casually. You can always contact us with pictures, we’re happy to advise. Afraid you’re overdressed? Stick to Oscar Wilde:

“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”

Business Casual – The Dress Code Explained

Business Casual – Introduction

Today we’re talking about an important topic: dress codes. Since I’m running a Men’s magazine, we’re explaining that first, I hope we can talk about the ladies soon.

Every now and then, I’m asked how the dress code ‘Business Casual’ works, today I will explain you how to do it. Usually, the term ‘Business Casual’ is written on an invite after a business day – which means your most likely attending a business event. The easier my solution – but we will explain later.

Of course, the dress code business casual allows a lot of room of interpretation. It’s after a tough working day? Why not an easy solution?

The good thing about business casual, it works the same way in every season – wearing a suit is always possible! Dependent on temperature, just the fabric changes. Doesn’t make sense to wear linen during Winter and tweed in Summer?

Business Casual – Remove Your Tie!

You’re running around in a suit the whole day? Anyway tired, up for a drink and a chat with your colleagues? The tie looks classy but it’s not always comfortable. Event though the dress code business casual is often mixed up with smart casual, I do have a separate solution here:

Remove Your Tie!

Sounds too simple? Dependent on what suit you’re wearing, you can also get rid of the belt. The advantage of all this: you don’t have to run home to change clothes.

Basically, you can use components from the dress code smart casual. But I do believe, the dress code business casual is a bit more classy. It’s less colors and sneakers and more of an understatement. Whilst smart casual can be pretty trendy and fashionable, I would recommend to go for an easygoing but still classy style here.
