Hi, we're Mindy and Paula Shapiro of the Style Duo. Today, we're here at Boutique 811, in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. Today, we're here to discuss semi-formal verses business casual. In order to dress appropriately for a semi-formal event, we like to think, make a splash. Wear something that makes you feel special. So we're talking graduation parties, bridal showers. Today, we have a beautiful sheath dress in a gorgeous shade of blue. And what makes this special is the embellishment by the neckline, and the beautiful cutout at the chest. Now, with something like this, you might want to pair it with a decorative clutch, something to dress it up a little bit, and also wear your fancy shoes. So, now let's take a look at business casual. Think business meeting, parent-teacher conference, something like that. Nothing too stuffy or conservative, something a little fun, but not too formal. So here today, we found a really fun blazer with fun stripes and a really nice fabric. We paired it with a white tank underneath, again, fun and not too stuffy. Some black slacks, form fitting, showing a nice silhouette, and classic shoes. This has been the Style Duo, and that was business casual verse semi-formal.
