The Professional Office
If your workplace is more of the professional type, you want to keep that professionalism and shouldn’t use the above example of a business casual dress policy. Instead, you might opt for:
Tops – No golf shirts, Henley’s, sweat or T-shirts are allowed nor will tank tops be accepted. Short sleeve button down and cropped sleeve blouses are favored over sleeveless tops. On casual days, ties and business suits are not required.
Bottoms – Only cleaned and pressed khaki-style pants or skirts are accepted. No jeans or corduroys are allowed. No cropped pants, shorts, skorts, Bermuda shorts or mini-skirts are allowed. All skirts must be of a professional length and type of material (no blue jean skirts, for example).
Dresses – All sundresses are generally not allowed, especially if they are sleeveless or of the see-through variety. Dresses should be of the casual day-wear type with discretion being of the utmost importance.
Shoes – No sneaker, athletic, flip-flops or sandals are allowed. Shoes should be clean and professional; for casual days, flats for women and loafers for men are acceptable.
Accessories – No accessories promoting lifestyles (grunge, etc.) will be tolerated. All accessories, jewelry and belts must follow the same requirements as a normal professional dress day. Baseball caps and hats should not be worn on business casual day.
