Business Formal:

Business formal attire is typically required for important meetings, conferences, or professional events. For men, this dress code calls for a tailored suit in a conservative color, such as navy or charcoal gray. Pair it with a crisp dress shirt, a conservative tie, and polished dress shoes. Women should opt for a tailored suit or a knee-length dress paired with closed-toe heels and minimal jewelry. The key is to maintain a professional and polished appearance.

Business casual attire strikes a balance between formal and relaxed, suitable for most office settings and networking events. Men can wear dress slacks or chinos paired with a collared shirt, a blazer, and leather shoes. Avoid jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers. Women have more flexibility, with options such as tailored pants, skirts, or dresses paired with blouses, cardigans, or blazers. Opt for comfortable yet professional footwear, such as flats or low heels.

Casual attire is suitable for relaxed and informal gatherings. However, it's important to note that casual doesn't mean sloppy or unkempt. Men can wear khakis or chinos paired with a polo shirt, a button-up shirt, or a sweater. Avoid t-shirts with graphic prints and opt for clean and well-fitted clothing. Women can choose comfortable yet stylish outfits such as jeans, skirts, or casual dresses paired with t-shirts, blouses, or sweaters. Add accessories and comfortable shoes to complete the look.

It's important to adhere to the formal nature of the event and dress accordingly.
