Have you ever been invited to an event and been told “it’s just business casual”? I have, and I’m always partly relieved (no dress suit) and partly perplexed (what is your definition of business casual?). And I’ve heard more than a few people having the same discussion.
This article from the University of Oregon’s Career Center blog tries to answer that question. It outlines acceptable business casual options for men and women and points out the no-nos (yes, flip-flops are on the list). Give it a quick read and maybe it’ll be helpful the next time you’re standing in your closet pondering the biz-casual dilemma.
