Business Casual Pictures

We have pulled together a collection of business casual pictures reflecting acceptable business casual attire as well as unacceptable business casual for men.

Acceptable Business Casual Attire

Let's start with the acceptable series of images. business casual attire At left is typical business casual for men. Although you can't see his trousers, if you assume he's wearing dress slacks or khaki pants then he's good to go for business casual.

You'll see this setting often in the white collar work environment and the image portrays a man conforming to traditional business casual dress guidelines.

Next is a classic business casual look. You can't go wrong with this one.business casual attireIt's "executive casual" and the genleman to the right is using the business suit without a tie and opened collar to dress down his fine navy blue suit.

If you want to error on the side of conservative and classic "executive casual" is the look for you.

The 3rd relevant image for acceptable business casual attire has a gentleman wearing a white dress shirt with a light vertical pattern and flat front dress slacks. business casual attire

This general look is widely accpeted in arguably "any" published business causual dress guidelines.

If you want to remove some "casual" from this attire, just keep the sleeves extended and buttoned and fasten the next button on the shirt front to bring the collar together a tad more.

Otherwise, stick with this dress theme for an acceptable business casual for men.


Unacceptable Business Casual Attire

Here we have a perfect example of "no" when it comes to either business attire and/or business casual attire. The next images do not qualify as acceptable business casual picturesbusiness casual attire

A tie with faded and tattered jeans might get you points at a casual cocktail party with your friends but in the workplace this look falls quite short.

Remove the tie (or keep it if you like) and upgrade the jeans to something slightly more crisp or less worn and you can take that look into the office on casual fridays.

Lastly and similarly to the situation above, dressing up jeans with a tie or a sport coat does not qualify for acceptable businss casual attire. business casual attire

This works for a casual Firday's but not for standard weekday white collar work environments (not yet at least!)
