Some say that the definition of business casual has been stretched too far. Is it really that casual? Do you have to wear shirts and ties to be considered a workaholic?
This is an important distinction. It is a difference between work and play. While many people consider that work wears hats and clothes, while a lot of people who go out on a date are referred to as fun-hat wearing party animals, there is no such thing as work and play.
Casual clothing is meant to be worn by both the professional and the casual person. For instance, you can wear clothes that are casual, as long as they are not too casual. If they are too casual, then they do not belong in the casual category. For instance, a blazer might be a good choice if you are out for a nice dinner with friends, but if you were out to a night club, then the blazer does not belong in the casual category.
There are also some accessories that are important. For instance, a white tie suit is a great choice for formal events. It is very acceptable for an event that has less formal rules or if the event is just going to be an informal get together.
At the same time, you need to choose a white tie suit that is not the same color as your shirt. This will make it obvious that you are working when you are wearing a white tie suit. There are a lot of great accessories that are considered work.
You could have a dinner jacket. These are made for working men. They have pockets in them that are not too deep. The extra pockets are usually filled with chocolates or other mementos that will remind you of a night at home with family.
Necklaces are great accessories. These are used for a more formal event like a dinner or a wedding. You can choose a great necklace that will be appropriate for any occasion and your outfit.
The important thing is that you wear clothes that are appropriate for the occasion. While it is fine to have a bit of a laugh with a friend, if you are dressed inappropriately for the occasion, you will look completely out of place.
