Business Casual at Work
As the old saying goes, it’s business casual when you feel it. We are getting to that point of no return for many businesses; all businesses. Well, you are starting to see some wear and tear on your business, you need to look at your business like you might an old suit you have worn out and then simply remove the buttons.
The first thing that we notice about any business is its wear and tear. We get in touch with people when they make a phone call. We write on forms with pen and paper. In short, when we do things with our hands we notice the wear.
People, corporations and other types of businesses are real-time wear and tear. They change. The same with us. We are not going to change just because someone says it is casual. It will still be business casual because it is a daily routine for most of us.
Working in business casual can be like wearing a suit that no longer fits you because the new suits don’t fit you and your office smells bad. In other words, the garments are old and worn out. I am not saying that being a business casual in your office is bad but this could create discomfort in your work environment, especially when you have many employees.
Just the smell, the sweat and your foul breath and smells can be a major problem for most people. Think about how many times you had to scrub some sweat off of your nose or throat while working or brushing your teeth.
Keeping a few items in your dresser drawer will help you transition to a business casual environment. You will have enough material to wear a tie from time to time. Ties for women are a major time saver and is a way to dress down for work. Not to mention that it is stylish and attractive too.
Shoes are also a big time saver. I know you have shoes laying around and they are dirty and have holes in them. A fresh pair of shoe will give you a new lease on life. A pair of dressy dress shoes is the next best thing to a great pair of dressy pants. The ultimate dress shoes for business are the in-soles boots.
This is only a handful of ideas to help you transition into your office environment. Keep your eyes open, add some shoes and socks, and get used to the smell and sweat of your business and the wear and tear of your clothing.
