Casual Wear Terms for the Apparel Industry & Consumers of Casual Fashion

Casual is the dress code that emphasizes comfort and personal expression over presentation, formality and conformity.  Casual clothing is worn to make the wearer look and feel relaxed and comfortable.  Wearing this category of clothing helps people feel at ease.

Casual clothing in many business environments is expectable.  However, you most definitely need to learn your companies dress code requirements before making your casual fashion statement.

Casual Friday (also known as dress-down Friday or casual day) is a trend that has spread around the globe. The general concept is that some business offices relax their dress code on Fridays. Some businesses that usually require employees to wear suits, dress shirts, neckties, and dress shoes allow more casual attire on Fridays.
