Business Wear

Business Wear (adj., n.)

A type of dress code for both males and females that requires, for men, a suit, a dress shirt, necktie and dress shoes.

Typically one would abide by this dress code when interviewing for a job, when meeting clients, when representing an organization or company, or when working for a company with strict dress codes.

Business wear usually adheres to conservative suit colors such as navy blue and gray, basic shirt colors—white or blue—and a plain style necktie.
