The most appropriate business attire policy for your workplace.

Want a simple, sample dress code policy that specifies business attire for work? You can use these sample dress code policies to tell employees how you expect them to dress for work. If you need a more elaborate policy, you will want to take a look at the various business attire policies and illustrative business attire photo galleries that are highlighted below.

Your company expects employees to dress appropriately in business attire. Because our work environment sees frequent visits from customers, clients, and the public, professional business attire is essential.

Business attire for men includes suits, sports jackets and pants that are typical of business formal attire at work. For women, business attire includes pant and skirt suits and sports jackets appropriate to a formal business attire environment.

Employees are expected to demonstrate good judgment and professional taste. Courtesy to coworkers and your professional image to clients should be the factors that are used to assess that you are dressing in business attire that is appropriate.

Employees who wear business attire that is deemed inappropriate in this workplace will be dealt with on an individual basis rather than subjecting all employees to a more stringent dress code for appropriate business attire.

Your company expects employees to dress appropriately in business casual attire. Because our work environment serves customers, professional business casual attire is essential. Customers make decisions about the quality of our products and services based on their interaction with you.

Consequently, business casual attire includes suits, pants, jackets, shirts, skirts and dresses that, while not formal, are appropriate for a business environment. Examples of appropriate business attire include a polo shirt with pressed khaki pants, a sweater and shirt with corduroy pants, and a jacket, sweater and skirt. Jeans, t-shirts, shirts without collars, and footwear such as flip flops, sneakers, and sandals are not appropriate for business casual attire.
