Business casual for women

Hi everyone

Here I am with another post today and this post gives you tips about how to dress casual in a corporate environment or office .Because all clothing are not appropriate for office these guidelines might help to determine what to wear?.
"Professional" doesn't mean "dowdy," it doesn't mean "feminine," it doesn't mean "expensive."

Basic Rules 

Wear well fitted clothes.
Dress according to your job tasks.
Stick to closed toe shoes.(Big no to open sandals slippers etc)Always remember to shine your shoes.
Keep your hair tired up or a neat hair style will also do.subtle makeup.
Accentuate the positive. for example if you have great legs wear skirt but make sure they are of correct length.
Colors do matter. Avoid dazzling colors
Keep it simple and modest. (Avoid low neck lines and revealing dresses )
Know that you look good!!!(confident,happy,comfortable person = attractive person)

Tips
1.Avoid cloths which shows off more skin
2.Wear ironed clothes always.
3.Avoid clothes that have words /pictures that may be offensive to co - workers.
4.Avoid jazzy , heavy clothes or any kind of party wear .(except for some special occasions where in you are asked to wear it)
For business casual - Dockers.synthetic pants,dressy Capri are appropriate.
                                 Skirts that are split below or near the knees acceptable.
                                 Casual shirts, dress shirts, sweaters, tops golf- type shirts and turtle neck acceptable.
                                 Suit jackets/sports jacket acceptable.
                                 Indian outfits like salwar kameez/kurta - chudidar/Sari acceptable.
                                 Avoid kurta with very bold colors and prints.
                                 Walking shoes,loafers,clogs,sneakers,boots/dress heels,flats,leather shoes acceptable
                                 Any shoe with open toe are not acceptable.
                                 Jewelry /makeup/perfume should be subtle and minimal.
                                 Hats/head covers not acceptable.

Here are some pictures to help you know what exactly a business casual looks like.
