In formal business environments, employees are allowed to wear business casual clothes instead of suits on this last day of the work week. Sometimes given a theme, it is intended to alleviate stress and bolster employee morale.
In smaller companies where business casual is worn every day, this day should be called just "Casual Friday" when lower-quality clothes are allowed.
When in doubt, it is better to overdress than to wear clothes too casual, so as not to be reprimanded by the suits.
