Business casual dress is usually slacks and a blouse. It is nice dress just short of wearing suits. In warmer climates, longer capris with a sweater set or jacket is usually acceptable. Most managers/executives don't like business casual or casual Fridays mostly because the perception of what is acceptable becomes so liberal that soon people are wearing flip flops and daisy dukes. Sounds like they are just trying to reign it in to avoid serious violations especially if customers visit your location. I would suggest visiting Target or Walmart and start adding some business casual items to your wardrobe. You will be able to find a variety of reasonably priced, stylish and comfortable options. There is no sense "fighting City Hall" on this point unless you already have another job lined up.
