Women’s pant suits are becoming a thing of the past. Many businesses have switched their business professional wear over to business casual. Business casual itself is changing. Business casual is no longer considered khakis and a collared-shirt.
Fashion is HOT. Fashion is growing and people are accessorizing outfits now more than ever. People want to look good, and when you look good, you usually feel good. It is a direct relationship.
Employers are letting loose and compromising on the strict, suit and tie environment (both men and women). CRAZY RIGHT?! Corporate America is leaning to the fashionable side of business. Trendy is the new business dress code!
Many people are hesitant when it comes to the gray lines that determine business casual, from professional, and even everyday wear. Business professional is NO LONGER your average pant suit for men and women. Dress codes are becoming more flexible. Looking professional is going beyond a blazer and black pants.
What is the NEW work wear for the corporate side of business? The list is endless. The “staple” pieces in your closet are growing.
