In part one of the article we've tried to show why our clothes are important for example for the business taht we have and our functioning in the society. We told also what does it mean to be elegant and how we can make. In this part we would like to tell something about dress codes and matching clothes with occasion.

Our clothes should always match our look in general - figure,Guest Posting age, and of course the occasion. Clothes that we wear while being at the weekend trip are usually totally different than the one that we wear in the office, on social meetings or at official party. The way we look also depends on the weather, time of day or time of year.

What are the types of dress codes?

We have three types of dress codes: business wear (called also informal wear), formal wear and semi-formal wear.

Mostly business wear means dress that we wear till 8 pm, and for man it means wearing a regular suit, for women a short dress. Informal wear may also be divided into threee subcategories: business dress (classic business wear), business casual (its a comfort that goes with elegance which is important for a good image of company. It's not the kind of clothes that we wear on the evening meeting but we can wear it on business journey. Most important character of this type of code is that man don't have to wear ties but they can't be seen in jeans.), casual dress which means that we can wear jeans at company picnic.

Formal wear is this type of clothes that we wear on evening meetings, parties. It can be worn only on big events like weddings or usually after 8 pm. Formal wear for man is usually frockcoat or tuxedo. Those garments are worn usually in the evenings. When we are going on the early wedding we can dress into so called swallow (type of jacket). When it comes to women they can wear all types of dresses (usually not to short). But if their companion wears frock coat they should wear long dress.

Semi-formal wear is something between informal and formal dress. Semi-formal for men is dark suit with white shirt and not too sparkly tie. For women its a short dress that can be replaced by the tailor-made dress. Semi-formal tailor-made dress differs from the one that is worn in a day - it's a little bit more delicate and made of lighter material with more intense color.

This is the end of part two of this article which showed in shortcut what types of dress codes do we have. In third part we will tell something about accessories and most common mistakes that we make while dressing formal wear and not only.
