Women's Business Casual & Work Clothes

    Build a stylish work wardrobe with help from Macy's. Some offices require business professional attire, the most traditional type of work clothes for women. If this describes your office's dress code, you'll need a suit and blouse, plus hosiery and heels for a formal business look. Business casual women have more leeway with their work clothes. That's because business casual attire encompasses more items. Sweaters, shirts, blazers, ankle pants, and dresses are all appropriate. Smart-casual footwear like ankle boots and loafers put the finishing touch on business casual outfits for women, though pumps and flats are fine, too. Whether you're shopping for women's work clothes or looking for new workwear styling ideas, Macy's is here to help you get dressed for the job.

    Is a Suit Still Required?
    Most people hear "business attire" and immediately think of a 
    suit. While some offices still require suiting, many business dress codes have relaxed and allow for more flexibility. Even in some traditional jobs, tailored separates are now considered acceptable business attire for women. Before making a purchase, check your closet to see what's missing. Have you amassed an army of blouses and pants? Mix in a pencil skirt. Or try a work dress instead. Pair these with a blazer for a more polished look. Add in a work bag, and you're ready for the office.

    Business Casual is Open to Interpretation
    Business casual for women means different things depending on the field. For example, acceptable women's business attire for some jobs includes trousers, button-front shirts, knee-length skirts, and jackets. In other fields, the rules are more flexible, and you can play with unique silhouettes, textures, and fabrics. Complement business casual clothes for women with accessories like a 
    tote bag and eye-catching jewelry. Some offices permit denim, as long as it is workplace-appropriate.
