Business casual means crisp and professional, which is why we have come up with this list of possible outfits. All for your first day of work or first day back to work to make the best first impression. These suggestions also depend on the office environment and must be adjusted as such.
7 Best Business Casual Outfits for Women
You can’t go wrong with a saree; it screams business. A saree will leave any woman looking professional, capable, and elegant. However, this look is a little less on the casual side but can be worn to the office with confidence. In the summers we suggest a cotton saree as it can get quite hot and a silk one for the winter.
Nothing says casual like a pair of jeans and business like a nice white Kurti top. A white Kurti and jeans have long become an iconic staple among working women in India. It is the perfect outfit for days when you don’t feel like putting in too much effort into your ensemble while still looking classy and put together. To make this look your own, pair it with some bold accessories which will stand out.
3. Palazzo Pants with a Blouse
Palazzo Pants look good with anything, especially printed shirts, but they look especially good with a plain blouse. This look gives off the impression of a little fun while still keeping it serious and professional. Worn with big hoop earrings, you can rock a presentation in this outfit.
4. Kurti with Cigarette Pants
This is the perfect Indo-Western look, as cigarette pants are very similar to western formal pants. Kurtis and the pants have been in fashion for so long that this look is a classic among working women. Pair this look with a pair of heels, and you are in business.
5. Kurti with Pants
Wearing a Kurti or an Indian style women’s tops with pants in another classic look. Whether the pants are tights or jeans, they always look good. It is still good to have this outfit on standby for just another day at the office. This is probably the best example of Indian business casual on the list.
6. Ghagra Skirt
A Ghagra skirt paired with a plain top is also the right work outfit, especially if you are sick out wearing pants to work every day. This look is considered a little boho chic and always looks good. When picking your skirt, stick to simpler patterns and not pick very fancy ones as they will look out of place with your plain shirt.
7. Salwar Suit
The Salwar suit is India’s answer to the western suit. This outfit will leave you looking like you mean business and will give you the confidence to project confidence whenever you speak. The pastel shades are the best to wear for work and will make you look effortlessly elegant. This is the perfect outfit to look refined, sophisticated, and have an air of understated glamour. This is a power suit.
Wearing something professional will not only help assert an aura of intent and precise determination but also give you the confidence to undertake your tasks in a challenging and overwhelming office environment.
