A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to ‘model’ for Clare Tattersall’s article on Business Casual attire. I definitely agree it is a confusing term and I was honoured to get to be a part of her project!

Because of this, employers take very seriously the image that you create for yourself and their company.
It is absolutely imperative that you create a good first impression in an interview; but, that attention to detail and effort needs to shine through on a daily basis. You want to ensure that you are dressing on the high end of what is acceptable in your workplace. “If everyone wears jeans every day, a suit would be too much, as it might convey arrogance; khakis would make a much better choice.
