STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Business Casual

The term “business casual” gets tossed around all the time, but does anyone know what that actually means? Guys can throw on khakis and a button-down and call it a day, but with girls it is not quite that easy. What is too dressy? What is not dressy enough? The lines are pretty blurred. Most of the time it depends on the event you are going to and the crowd that will be there. Since “business casual” is such a broad, undefined term it is usually better to err on the side of caution. I know I would much rather be overdressed than underdressed.

While dressing business professional is more straight-forward, with business casual you are able to have a little more fun. This Fashionista kept the bottom half simple with trouser leg pants, an off-white blouse and nude pumps. You really cannot go wrong with these shoes because they can dress up any outfit, even if you are just wearing jeans. They’re comfortable too, so there is really nothing better. And now for the main event: the hot pink blazer. This Fashionista really hit the nail on the head with this one. What is more fun and brings life to what could potentially be a boring business meeting than hot pink? Nothing! This statement jacket really livens up the whole outfit and can make anyone happy!
