can you define this for me?

My job booklet says "business casual", however I think you can have either business, or casual. How do you combine the two? I've noticed that I seem to be overdressing for my job, yet others are getting in trouble for their attire. What do you consider "business casual"? (Sidenote: I am unable to wear hoodies/ tennis shoes to my job. Everyone got a memo on that Tuesday)

Business casual, to me, means you can wear sweaters instead of blouses, khakis instead of slacks, lace-up shoes instead of heels or flats. Like a bank teller rather than a ceo.

Full on business usually means a blazer with a collered shirt, with black or grey slacks and closed toed shoes/heels. Business casual you do a solid cardigan and a nice top underneath with khakis slacks and flats.

This is what I thought, but I'm one of maybe 20 people that dress like this. Everyone else wears jeans, Tshirst... A few people wear hole-y jeans and graphic t shirts (these are the ones who get into trouble.) So for clarification this is how I am supposed to dress?

slacks, blouses, sweaters, skirts, low heal or loafer style shoes 

business means suits or dresses 

business causual means business seperates okay as long as you don't violate a dress code stipulation 

this is business casual --- NO jeans unless they say dark ones are acceptable or colored jeans -- or casual friday

Business casual is not jeans. Those people are wrong.

I consider business casual to basically be a suit without the jacket. Button-down shirt, nice slacks, nice shoes. Natural makeup, if any, and little jewelry.
