Go for a no-break to half-break. And again, start off with more conservative colors like navy, grey or camel. I kid, of course. Sneakers have as little business being in a business-casual outfit as T-shirts and jeans. Get a pair in black and brown so you have a pair of appropriate shoes to wear with any color of your pants.
Some business-casual offices still expect you to wear a suit to work. They just allow you to leave the tie at home. It still looks most professional and handsome as well, so the ladies tell me.
Wearing a suit gives you the most professional image, even if you forego the tie. In some offices, you may only wear them during winter , as a middle layer between your shirt and jacket. But other offices allow you to wear them as a substitute for your jacket. Keep your sweater or cardigan lightweight and solid. Leave the chunky knits and bold patterns for more casual occasions. In fact, the business-casual craze started with just leaving the tie at home.
The first way to dress business-casual is to simply wear your suit without the tie. A leather strap with a subtle silver or gold face is fine. Avoid silver or gold straps. And consider sprucing the outfit up a bit with a pocket square.
Adding a pocket square will fix that. This outfit is actually quite safe when it comes to dressing business casual. You can pull this look off in two ways: With dress pants or with chinos. The dress pants will give you a dressier look whereas the chinos are a tad more casual. Both looks will probably be fine if your office has this standard of business-casual, but the dress pants will give you a more professional edge.
The latter works too, but dress pants will slide the look back towards business a bit. This is the most casual of the business-casual looks. It leaves both the jacket and tie at home.
Like with the previous look, go with dress pants rather than chinos to avoid venturing too far into casual territory. Wearing a tie without a jacket makes you look boyish. Not a professional look, my friend. So either wear a jacket and tie or wear neither. Just having it around will make the tie look deliberate. Now you know how to make business casual work. Be the guy that gets it right.
Take it one step up. I do have one question. What are the general guidelines for pairing pants and jackets? Is one generally light and one generally dark? Very informative, thank you. I do have a question. What are the general rules of style when matching pants with a jacket?
One light, the other dark? As well as shoes. Are short sleeve dress shirts in summer weather acceptable with business casual attire? The short sleeves tend to have holes that are far too big for most guys. As I read this site, I thought it was great and very enlightening. I concluded that, as you well explained, business casual is not a single dress code with a very specific level of formality, but ranges from most formal to most casual within it, with many variables and layers.
Now, I wanted to suggest or rather ask that, just as there is the suit sans tie, there is also the counterpart of wearing suit separates non-matching jackets with a tie, is there not? If it is, would this be the equivalent to the suit without a tie in terms of level of formality? Do you mean wearing a suit jacket with pants from another suit?
That would be similar to the odd jacket as explained above. Wearing separates comes with some risk. If you wear your suit jacket out too often without the pants, you might find one day that they no longer match, as wearing it out can cause slight discoloration over time.
