Casual FridayCasual Friday
or Dress-down Friday
is a semi-reprieve from the constrictions of a dress code
that some offices celebrate. Whereas, during the rest of the week, business shirts, suitss
, ties and dress shoes
are the norm, on Casual Friday
workers are allowed to wear casual dress. Some companies allow jeans
, T-shirts, and sneakers but others require smart casual dress.
Some compamies and schools operate an occasional "dress down" day, where employees pay a small fee to be allowed to wear casual clothes (or even fancy dress); the money being donated to charity.
