Everything You Need To Master 'Business Casual'

For a phrase that gets thrown around constantly, "business casual" is one of the hardest-to-define sartorial choices out there. Our definitions of "formal" and "casual" shift so often that it can be difficult to know exactly what to wear when a presentation or meeting demands this kind of get-up.

Click through to see the pieces to wear, whichever work environment you find yourself in, whether it's a creative agency or a law firm.
