    Branded T shirts are commonly used as a great way to advertise your company because they are inexpensive
    and something that millions of people enjoy wearing on a daily basis. These shirts are branded with the name
                                           or logo of your company, etc.

                                      Navigating the “Business Casual” Dress Code

   Modern times have brought about a dress code often referred to as business casual. This dress can
vary wildly from industry to industry, location to location and company to company. Here are some tips
to help you ensure that you don’t over or under dress the next time you need to dress in a business
casual style.

What Pants To Wear

 Business casual almost never means jeans. Usually khaki pants that are properly pressed and made
of a high quality material are the best selection. Cotton, wool, twill, and gabardine are appropriate
material choices. The heavier the fabric, typically the more polished and formal the look. If you are
afraid that the pant may be too casual, choose a gabardine version in a tailored cut. Pleated pants are
often more “dressy” that flat front and you should almost always choose a straight cut leg.

What Shirt To Wear

 No matter what shirt you choose, you should always choose one with a collar. Business casual means
there is no need for a neck tie, but you should never go so casual as to wear anything resembling a
t-shirt. Collared polo shirts and crisp button ups are always a safe bet. Solid colors are the most classic
look, but prints such as checks and stripes can also be acceptable. Always be sure and tuck the tail of
the shirt into your pants.

What Jacket to Wear

 Many times jackets are not necessary with a business casual look, but they will never be wrong either
if you choose the right one. Be sure to choose a sports jacket or blazer and never a more formal suit
jacket. Carefully pick a jacket in a classic cut and more casual fabric to not look over done. Be sure
that if you choose a jacket with a pattern that it is not loud or gaudy. Checks and hound’s tooth are
popular choices, but when in doubt, always stick with a solid.

What Accessories to Wear

Always wear a belt. Forgetting the belt leaves the look unfinished and sloppy. Your belt should match

your shoes and should be high quality. If your belt starts looking cracked or worn, don’t keep wearing it
with your business casual attire! Some men who actually like to wear neckties can do so appropriately
with business casual dress even though they are not required. Be sure to pick a necktie that is in a
more casual pattern, cut, and material. A great watch is another accessory to think about. Make sure to
wear a watch that matches your other accessories for a sophisticated casual look.

What Briefcase to Carry

 If you have the need to carry things to a business casual event or day at the office, don’t think you can
get away with lugging your stuff in a backpack. Simple leather briefcases that match the color of your
shoes and belt will be just fine. If there are things you intend to carry that won’t fit in a briefcase,
choose a sporty messenger style bag that coordinates with your outfit. Think of it as the male version
of a woman’s purse and understand if you want to look put together, it should match the rest of your
ensemble.

Dressing Tips for Interview Success
 by: Donna Monday

Dressing appropriately for job interviews is one of those areas that puzzles some people.

Should you dress conservatively or wear casual attire?

What colors work best?

What types of shoes should you wear?

As a rule, you should dress conservatively for most job interviews. Remember, you only get one shot at
making a good first impression.

Here are some basic dress for success tips:

Research how people in a particular field/organization dress and then dress accordingly. If you’re not
sure what the dress code is, dress conservatively.

Conservative formal dress consists of a suit (gray, navy, or black) with a nice dress shirt/blouse. Shoes
should be dark and well-shined. Women can also wear a tailored dress with or without a jacket. Pumps
with low to medium heels are best.

Business casual is a more relaxed look for both men and women. Casual interview wear can consist of
a sports coat or jacket with pants or a skirt in an attractive contrasting color. Think: Navy blazer with
khaki pants, etc. Add a casual shirt or turtleneck to complete the look.

Hair and nails should be clean and well-groomed.

Skip the perfume and aftershave. You don’t want to turn an interviewer off by overpowering their sense
of smell.

Avoid wearing noisy, dangling earrings and bracelets – these can look inappropriate and be distracting.
Hide or remove body piercings and tattoos.

Learning how to dress smart for your interviews will create a great impression and also give your
self-confidence a real boost.
