Originally a Western trend, Casual Fridays have spread to other parts of the world including Ghana.

Top and middle-level business executives have the licence to relax their dress code on Fridays as part of this trend.

But how do you know when your casual wear is ‘too casual’?

These Casual Friday ideas should help.


Different from the normal dress shirt we know, a Jumpa always brings out its own beauty. The Jumpa can be rocked with a pair of trousers of the same pattern or a plain pair of trousers as seen in the photo above. This is a suitable Casual Friday outfit.


Lose the tie, fold and throw on a pair of jeans. This sky blue dress shirt and the linen white shirt (below) are not accompanied by a jacket or suit or a tie as this will make the dress down formal. 

Dress shirts can be worn formally to work, with a tuck-in if you prefer. 


The versatility of blazers has given most men the fashion sense that the blazer is a must in the wardrobe. Casual or formal, blazers match almost every outfit mixed with it. The blazer you match and mix should be able to create a look of comfort and confidence.
