Casual Dress Code
Casual means leisure wear – not to be confused with the well-known ‘baggy’ look. Outfits might include a shirt or polo shirt with jeans or chinos. You can definitely leave your tie in the wardrobe.
Smart Casual Dress Code Page 11 This dress code, combining sportiness with easy elegance, offers plenty of scope for choice. It doesn’t have to mean a dark suit and a tie: you could go for slacks or corduroy trousers and a shirt or polo shirt with a jacket, for example. Dark-colored jeans would also work.
‘Business casual’ is for relaxed business lunches, drinks after work, andbusiness trips. Your jeans are left behind in the wardrobe, replaced by elegant slacks. A classic suit with a plain shirt, tie, and knee-high socks is also fine.
Business environments demand a serious and elegant appearance. Put on a dark single-breasted or double-breasted suit, a plain shirt, a tie and socks in a matching color. Only take your jacket off if it gets hot. Bare skin showing between your socks and the bottom of your trousers when you sit down is also a definite faux pas.
Formal events always call for dark clothes. Combine a black dinner jacket with a waistcoat or cummerbund, a white dress shirt, and of course, a black bow tie. With black tie, you’ll be perfectly dressed for any formal evening celebration!
The more formal the event, the more elegant the dress code. ‘White tie’ calls for tails. Wear them with a white dress shirt and a hand-tied white silk bow tie – never a necktie. In this outfit, you’ll fit right in at the Vienna Opera Ball.
