When to Pick a Business Casual Style

I love attending events! I love the local chamber of commerce’s annual dinners as much as I love going to a ball game. I get in the right mood and I choose the appropriate business or casual attire. As simple as that. Life is oftentimes more complicated than that, isn’t it? This was my dilemma when I got an invitation to attend a leadership conference last week, an event that after careful consideration, I decided it required casual business attire.

How did I come to this conclusion you ask? It was a business event, getting the crème de la crème of the local business community under the same roof for almost the entire day. So it was a business event, but it ran for more than half a day. I had to pick which side I tilt the balance toward:  business or casual. Taking into consideration the venue I decided for a classic style: pencil skirt and snake print high heel platforms, to which I added a casual tan neutral-colored top. A professional outfit with a hint of femininity and fashionable look, don’t you think?

So when to pick  a business casual attire? Never have second thoughts when going to a business event that runs over many hours. Business casual is the perfect and safest choice, a style in between casual and dressy, a mixture of  formal business and street wear.  Tricky, isn’t it? But it works! Always!
