The degree of formality when related to the workplace, most often with clothing.

formal > business formal > business casual > casual

Companies will require employees to wear business formal in corporate or financial environments, executive and management positions, or when interacting with high-caliber customers.

Business casual is more common in small cities and among mid- and entry-level employees. Some business formal companies have Business Casual Fridays.

When in doubt, it is better to overdress than to wear clothes too casual, so as not to be reprimanded by the suits.

"Dress for the job you want, not the job you have."
Business formal: Suits

Business casual: Sweater, collar without a necktie, polo, vendor swag, blouse, black/brown/navy/gray trousers, pressed khakis.

Casual: Dockers, denim jeans, shorts, t-shirts, linen.

When a woman receives a lovely, fully bare bikini wax that appears great at first, but upon closer inspection one finds out -- to their horror -- that the wax has not touched her butt-hole at all...which remains hairy as hell.
I was so excited when my girl told me she got a bikini wax, but as I got up in her business I was horrified to see that her beautifully bare snatch led to a horrible pot of gold that resembled an old man's eyebrows. I realized my girl did not get a full wax at all, she was just going business casual. Bitch.

The expression on a porn starlet's face when one or more actors are executing the scene with her.
Man, when that third guy stepped in she nearly lost her business casual face and looked like she was not enjoying it.

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.

1. When your employer (or anyone you do business with) fucks you over. (Bonus if uniform attire is somehow involved.)
2. When a business makes its money from fucking over all or most of its customers.
I just got denied my yearly 10 cent raise because of those times I wore the wrong colored khakis to work. That's business casual sex.

Just got my credit card statement. They raised by interest rate based on my anticipated lateness next month. Business casual sex as usual.

The term used by places of buisiness that allow the employees a slackening of the dress code on the final day of the work week. Commonly known as "Biz Cas Fri". Well, not really.
"Oh, how I love to wear unique-colored pants and a belt full of metal squares rather than just plain khakis on BUSINESS CASUAL FRIDAY."
