What Business casual looks like depends on the industry. Business casual in an IT firm will be different from that of an Architectural firm. Best way to figure out what business casual means for your firm would be to ask HR straight. But, if the thought of going to HR doesn’t sit right with you, just look at your colleagues and manager. Since they would be a good gauge for the appropriate dress code.
As a boss lady, your wardrobe should show a woman evolving into the best version of herself. One of the best ways to do this is to have a sophisticated appearance. Having a polished look requires your clothes to look good, your nails well kept, and your hair on being fleek.
Please note that dressing like a boss lady doesn’t mean being loud or showy. Rather, it has more to do with dressing in a way that shows she is confident in herself and her abilities.
Sis, if you wear makeup, you gotta put time and effort into its application. Learn the basics, figure what works for your face and you will slay.
Power Suit: No boss lady wardrobe is complete without a power suit. Luckily, Business causal looks do not need that power suit to have to be solid colours like black, grey, etc.
This means you can have fun with your power suit. Your power suit can be in print or white like our style board.

- Wear what makes you feel the most “yourself” while keeping the HR dress code in mind.
- Choose a personal “power suit” that reflects your personality and makes you feel good.
- Consider investing in some business casual wardrobe basics that you can mix and match throughout the year.
- Ask human resources if you’re feeling confused about your workplace’s dress code.
- Wear clothes that you feel too comfortable in (i.e., no sweats or gym clothes).
