“Business casual” can mean a lot of things. Blazers, ties and dress shoes all have their time and place; the trick is aiming for the occasion and leveraging your laid-back rapport by playing with different colors and textures. A good rule of thumb: keep things neat but comfortable. Just don’t look like you rolled straight out of bed. It’s not the weekend, yet. Below are a few ideas for three different situations to get started.
