The understated designs of Alex Mill may not stand out at first. But upon closer inspection, the brand's commitment to its own unique flair for craftsmanship is evident. Their clothing offers a simple solution for business casual that transfers just as easily to the weekend fit. The creative direction comes from a team with previous experience designing for J.Crew, Old Navy, Madewell, and Gap. They even use botanical dye in select pieces via rainwater and plant-based materials, making each item its own distinct shade.

In 2006, J.Crew introduced its sister brand Madewell as a premium denim brand for women. While you can still purchase denim, Madewell has evolved into an all-around clothing brand with everything from casual styles like jeans to office-appropriate styles like blazers, skirts, and sweaters.

Whether your office is super casual or still a bit formal, Madewell has garments that will fit into your wardrobe. And with frequent sales and promotions, you'll save money on almost everything you buy.

There are also plenty of options for business travelers that feature machine-washable, wrinkle-resistant, packable suiting staples like the Moreland jacket. M.M.LaFleur also makes the ingenious Foster Pant that adjusts for different shoe heights.

While you can get everything from casual styles like jeans to formal styles like wedding dresses, Reformation is a wonderful place to shop for workwear. Pieces like the Catrina Blazer are super stylish and easy to layer with items already in your wardrobe.

When it comes to the difference between casual and smart casual attire, you can think of the latter as ramping things up a notch. While casual dress may be as simple as a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, smart casual might mean choosing a collared polo in place of a standard tee or denim in a darker wash.

Swap the worsted wool for a matte flannel or tweed, however, and you both literally and metaphorically change the feel of the piece. This will also often make the garment seem larger in size, which only adds to the more casual vibe, given that smarter looks are usually sleek and streamlined.

What makes a smart shoe more casual? Colour: black is smartest, brown is more casual and tan more casual still. Silhouette: a round or almond toe is more casual than a pointy one, as is a chunky sole. And texture: nubby, matte suede is more casual than smooth, shiny leather.

For it to fly as smart casual, the blazer should be made from a more textured fabric than an average suit jacket, cut slightly shorter and constructed less rigidly. This also makes the process of throwing it on a whole lot easier.

The style comes from the uniform-wearing armed forces, so packs a certain formality payload. But for it to pass inspection as smart casual, the bomber jacket should be slimmer than a military-issue MA-1, in a dark colour (such as navy or black) and made of a more luxurious and less lustrous fabric than the standard shiny nylon (preferably wool or cotton). For informal smart casual missions, this is your wingman.

In the business context, smart casual can mean a pair of dark jeans or chinos, a collared shirt and an unstructured blazer, paired with some Derbies or smart sneakers. To stand out in the board room, throw in some subtle, yet sleek accessories like a colored belt.

Typically, Derbies or other casual dress shoes are a better pick for smart casual than sneakers. That said, smart sneakers have a way of bringing life into an otherwise boring outfit, so invest in a pair reserved for more dressed up occasions, that are free from marks or scuffs.

One of the most challenging aspects of dressing for work is finding the right business casual pieces. Shopping for business casual clothing is half of the challenge, then you have to put those items together into stylish and comfortable outfits for work.

In colder months, stick with long or sleeves; for spring and summer, short or cap sleeves work well, and you can even wear a wide-strapped tank. In the warmer months look for light blouses with cap sleeves, sleeveless, and shell tops in silk, light cotton, or other light fabrics for your business attire.

I know it can get cold in the office so even if you wear a sleeveless silk top you might want to layer with a blazer. In the business casual outfit below I paired a green silk polka dot top with a striped blazer. The two colors look great together and added neck detail on the shirt adds to the dimension and looks great against the straight-cut blazer. This is the variety and fun you can have with business casual

Your basic business casual cardigan is a staple in business casual attire, and it can be a simple waist-length cardigan or a longer boyfriend one. Your sweater can have buttons, no buttons, or a draped front collar. With longer cardigans, you can even use a skinny belt to add some definition and a different look to an outfit.

I love to layer blazers over all my business casual outfits because you never know how cold an office or location will be. So instead of being cold, you are prepared and also look stylish. In the outfit below I cuffed my blazer sleeve to soften the look and show off the cute striped lining. In the business casual outfit below I layered the blazer over a forest green dress. Added a skinny belt to the dress to create some definition and added a pretty silk neck scarf to brighten up your business attire and also soften the outfit.

You can also opt for heeled sandals, rather than close-toed shoes. As with general casual shoes, the height should be around 4 inches or lower and can include a wedge. Try to avoid dressier sandals that have embellishments, lots of straps, or look like they belong at a club. And, sadly, flat sandals are really not appropriate for most business casual work environments.

Hi Vanessa, You blog is a godsend! I have questions about grooming and hair styling for business casual. I work in finance and have long hair that I prefer off my face. Is wearing a high bun messy, too casual? Also, how dark can nail polish be? Makeup, contour, lashes? What is too much?

Great article and fabulous ideas to dress up for work! Thankfully, modern work culture has evolved enough, to allow women to experiment with comfortable fabrics, shoes and beautiful prints. I particularly liked your suggestion to include colors like burgundy and midnight blue and even forest green, which I think would look splendid on business attire.

Hi, thank you for the tips- very useful! Question: what about wide legged cullottes. I picked up a very smart pair of black cullottes- mid waist, in a polyester blend. Would this be acceptable business casual wear if paired with a black and white shirt or a plain back silk top and a printed scarf?

And I have to say, you can create amazing business casual looks with their clothes. One look can cost you less than 100$ (just for price preference). And I guarantee this look will be modern, stylish, and just awesome.

For anyone who's ever struggled to parse the meaning of an especially Byzantine dress code, "business casual" can be a cursed phrase. Thankfully, the best business casual shoes for men are nothing less than a blessing in disguise, a happy medium between the full-on dress shoes gathering dust in the back of your closet and the tattered sneakers piled precariously by your front door. Finding the idea of lacing up a pair of office-friendly shoes a little, uh, daunting? That's where these shoes come in. They'll help make your transition back to office life that much more bearable, all without invoking traumatizing memories of rigid dress codes from years past.
