You must dress in a practical and functional way so you convey professionalism, whether you are dressing for your clients, the company you work for or the goals you wish to achieve. If your dress code at work is business casual, it means that you will dress in a comfortable and professional way.
Business Casual for Women
Given that the rule is to dress professionally – business casual – you must aim for balance between formality and femininity. Whether you are wearing slacks or a skirt, both must make you look professional. If you add a blouse or a shirt, try to wear solid colors and ¾ sleeves. In hot weathers, the most advisable fabric is cotton or something thin, additionally to ensuring you remain comfortable, it is indeed the most elegant. Try wearing light clothing and comfortable shoes to enjoy the open-air “Awareness Spaces” which are part of the Congress events.
Business Casual for Men
Blazers are this Dress Code's most important garment since they add a touch of casual leadership and professionalism. You should try to wear navy blue or ivory garments, these are all neutral colors that match everything. Shirts must have long sleeves, not short sleeves (in hot weather, the recommendation is to wear cotton). Your trousers must be a darker shade, so you convey leadership. You can wear loafers and your socks must match your shoes or trousers (they may have a discrete design or print). Your belt must always match your shoes. If you choose to wear trousers in a light color, wear brown shoes; if your trousers are dark, then your shoes must be black.
