Business Formal to Business Casual

Business Formal to Business Casual

 

As the name suggests, a few changes here and there will change your look from business formal to business casual. here in this post, we are especially talking about how to use your jacket and vest to convert your business formal attire into a business casual attire.

The first grey jacket starting from the left is a business formal jacket, its elements of design are simply chic and neat.

Line – Straight lines
Shape – rectangular and boxy
Pattern – Simple
Texture – Smooth
Colour – Muted
Print / Pattern – Solid / no print pattern
Fit – medium fit

All the elements discussed above makes the piece of garment a formal one, it depends now how you combine your trousers and shirt with it.

The middle blue-green-black cheks jacket can be business formal or casual depending on the type of industry you are in.

Line – Straight lines
Shape – rectangular and boxy
Pattern – Medium size check print
Texture – Smooth
Colour – multiple colors, muted and dull
Print / Pattern – Medium size classic check pattern
Fit – medium fit

In this except for the print, pattern, and color rest, all elements of design are very formal. hence for a nonserious industry like say maybe media v/s a bank this jacket can be business formal or casual.

The third jacket/vest is definitely a business casual. For me, a vest for men is more like an accessory rather than an additional layer of authority.
