Business Formal Dress Code

Working woman wearing navy pant suit for business formal attire

The style
Pant suits are classic business formal attire. Wear your best suit with a simple button down or a shell.

Styling tip
Pant suits look good if they’re the right length. The hem should hit anywhere between your ankle and the middle of heels.

The style
Skirt suits are more feminine than pant suits, but just as formal. Show off your favorite heels in a nice skirt suit.

Styling tip
Wear a shell or nice tank top under the blazer for simplicity. Skirts look best when the hem hits at or below the knee, and the slit is not higher than mid thigh.

The style
Work dresses made with quality materials are perfect. Add a blazer for work dresses that don’t cover the shoulders.

Styling tip
Wear darker color dresses for conservative offices, but don’t shy away from a splash of color or patterns for more festive occasions.
