My old office was business casual/formal.  I usually wore dress pants and a nice top.

Business casual in my company is dress pants/skirt/dress with a nice top.

I work at a bank, so we have to wear business casual. No jeans or tennis shoes or anything like that. today I am wearing a pair of black slacks, a black lace cami and a tan knit cardigan. I always wear either black, grey, or brown slacks and a nice, cute top. I have flats on today, but sometimes i will wear my high heels.

Open toe sandals are appropriate at my job. Heck some actually wear sandals as long as they are not flip-flops. These are great questions to ask your new boss. I know I am allowed to wear Capri/flood style dress pants but I was with a company once that only allowed woman to wear those style pants if you wore a jacket with them.

Our entire office is pretty casual (some departments can wear jeans everyday), but our specific department must dress more formally. I wear either skirts and nice tops with sweaters, dresses with cardigans, or black dress pants with button-down shirts, and a sweater if necessary. Black flats or black pumps.

Fridays we can wear jeans (must be nice jeans, no rips, etc), and still need to wear formal work type tops.

Most of my work clothes come from Banana Republic or Ann Taylor.

Our office is totally laid back, I can wear jeans any day I want, or flip flops… so I won’t bore you with the details on what I wear to work…

My definition of business casual would be slacks and sweaters/blouses or skirts and sweaters/ blouses or dresses.  NO strapless, no flip flops, no tank tops, no SHORT skirts, no tees.

I would say that open toed shoes are perfectly fine.

I agree that you should talk to your boss about what is appropriate.  I would dress more on the conservative side on Monday to be careful and then discuss it with her/him.  Also, you can get clues from what your office mates are wearing.

We’re business casual so slacks or skirt with a nice top. For guys, they get to wear short sleeve polos with slacks!!

my office likes to say they are business casual but they are casual casual. i always wear jeans or a casual dress. flip flops, tank tops, whatever are fine too. my boss has come in wearing yoga pants or sweats on numerous occasions…i work for a mental health association, but all of our client contact is phone or email 🙂 i don’t know why they call it business casual though…
