So I'm having dinner at a restaurant and it said it was business casual...and I googled that and it said a nice collared shirt with dress pants or cakies. My girlfriend said it means a suit...what do you think I should wear. I don't own a suit by the way lol
thanks everyone you put my mind at ease lol. Just going to pick out a nice colared shirt with slacks and dress shoes.
I know what I am wearing now. Basicalling wearing a suit without a vest or coat. Wearing a tie incase I can always take it off later. Thx for your input
Everyone has got most of it already but I'll give you some of my input. Definitely shirt tucked in. Wear a belt also. I also consider short sleeved shirts as casual, as long as it looks nice with a collar and isn't some crazy design. I'm not sure if you know these people or not, but your girlfriend could be right. Business casual is kind of generic term and can mean many different things depending on the people and place. I know at my work I can get away with wearing jeans, but other places could be, as someone mentioned, just a suit without a tie. Just go off of what you have seen them previously wear and dress as nice or nicer than the best dressed guy.
