Business Attire
Translation: A suit is shorthand for "I'm professional"; all you have to do is glam it up. Wear red satin heels, a beaded bag, and crystal earrings to finish the job. You can show a bit of d├ęcolletage, but be prudent: You want to look approachable, not overtly sexy.

Variations: Suits in brighter, lighter colors are showing up now. 

AKA: "Business casual," "trade-show chic," "town dress," "urban chic," "city dress."
