What does Business Causal means to you? Well as per google, business casual means relating to or denoting a style of clothing that is less formal than traditional business wear, but is still intended to give a professional and businesslike impression. For FabFour Fashion Business Casual means casually dressed with style and flare. LOL if you don’t believe it scroll down and see for yourself.
Although I work in a rather corporate environment, thankfully we do have casual fridays where we employees have the pleasure of dressing down while still looking pulled together.
The basis of my business casual look were these white jeans and the royal blue waterfall collar vest. I find that the vest smartens up the outfit making the whole look seem very pulled together.
I added my favourite made to measure check shirt from Sumissura. I love where it hits me so that I don’t have to tuck it in but still look boardroom chic! The finishing touch is my beloved Kate Spade bag.
I work in a corporate environment, so when we have meetings I definitely need to suit it up. But in general, our office dress code is very relaxed. Of course, regardless of the setting, I still have to do me and come correct!
I scored these amazing crop pants on J. Crew. The fit is just perfect and I just love the leather trim. I have to say a big thank you to the good folks at J. Crew for offering some tall options! This means that these pants were indeed meant to be crop… Tall women everywhere will understand LOL. Also, I don’t have the dreaded gaping at the waist, so no tailoring necessary!
Then I added this leather jacket that I am wearing as a top – by now, you all know that I live for multi purpose clothing! The jacket comes with hooks to allow you to secure the lapel and wear it as a top. I finished my look with my fuchsia pumps.
This look easily translates to after work play, but before then, gotta take care of bid-nass!
I have been fortunate to work in a place that allows their employees to wear business casual on Fridays but you already know your girl Judy still brings it LOL. I love that business casual attire allows you to still be dressy-professional but more laid back.
For me business casual is more of a khaki, polo or jeans, for my business casual look I opted for a simple stripey grey, blue, and orange shirt with my pleated black leather at the knee skirt. This look is still professional and quite cute for an after work outing with my Fab Four Fashion ladies.
To emphasize my stripe shirt I wore my suede dark Ivanka Trump pumps with my mix leather and suede dark wine clutch.
To finish my look I wore my camel wool winter Olivia Pop-ish coat and it looks like I’m ready to take care of business.
The infamous phrase “You should dress for the job you want, not the job you have” is a rule I like to live by. So even when I’m doing casual looks, I still try to dress it up a notch. That’s definitely not to say that you won’t catch me in jeans, I love my dungarees, but I like a good business casual look.
I’m still feeling that vintage vibe so I wanted to rock a look that made me feel it from head to toe. So I went with a look that makes me feel like I’d fit right into a modern day episode of the Jefferson’s! The tie neck blouse is perfect for the office and can give off that sexy secretary look and works well with a ton of other pieces in my wardrobe.
For this look, I opted to pair my tie neck blouse with rust coloured culottes further emphasizing the throwback feel and these beige coloured boots that are in line with the simple colour palette and the overall look.
I kept the accessories to a minimum by wearing simple earrings and with that I’m ready for the office!
Tah tah for now,
