Dresscode business casual
At more informal occasions such as a business brunch or a more casual reception, as well as business trips, internal meetings and Casual Fridays, things are more relaxed than usual, but not too relaxed. A full leisure look is it still not appropriate here as these occasions still involve meetings in a business context. Coloured shirts are suitable for men, and button-down collars are also a good option instead of cutaway collars, with polo shirts, fine knitted pullovers and linen trousers offering alternatives. The tie can remain in the wardrobe. When it comes to footwear, men can also wear loafers or slip-ons - this isn’t inconsistent with the casual look.
Here I’ve chosen a light blue shirt with a pattern from the new OLYMP Level Five Smart Business collection, it's not a classic business shirt and a more casual look is created with the pullover worn around the neck.
Despite everything, I stick to the rules of business trousers in black, along with socks and loafers, so I don’t abandon the business theme completely.
