Business Dress Code Policies
When deciding what to wear to work, one should choose from the four types of corporate dress codes: business formal, business professional, business casual, and casual. A valuable tip from Antony is to stick to the basics to ensure you are consistently dressed appropriately.
1. Business Formal or Boardroom Attire
This is the highest business formal wear level. Meetings with those in high-level positions, executives, lawyers, you should arrive in business formal.
2. Business Professional or Traditional Business
Less formal than business formal wear. This allows you to be a little more casual by adding accessories and colors demonstrating your personal taste. However, business professional clothing is still neat, conservative, and traditional.
3. Business Casual or Executive Casual
The most common dress code in corporate America. However, it is always better to dress up if you are uncertain of how causal you should appear. One is given more room for personal preference with accessories and color.
Casual wear allows for some expression. However, research shows that coworkers make specific judgements regarding your capability based on your clothes, which may extend to employers as well. Antony recommends using caution and always show your best.
