Casual wear is clothing that can be worn during leisure time but can also be appropriate for a casual work environment or certain activities such as club events. Clothing that is casual is informal.
Casual wear can be appropriate for wearing to work (if your employer has a casual dress code). Some apparel that are appropriate are khakis, slacks, sweaters, leather shoes and polo shirts. Things that may not be appropriate are jeans, gym shorts, T-shirts, low-cut tops and running shoes. When thinking about what to wear to work, you can consult with your employer if you are not certain regarding the dress code policies.
Leisure wear clothes are designed to be worn during leisure time. A persons leisure is free time spent away from business, work, household chores and school. Leisure fashion is typically not appropriate for a work environment. However, it is perfect for people that work from home.
