Keep it decent: This is apt for both the genders. Casual work needs to informal however, since we are going to an office and not to a party, it’s important to maintain decency.

Keep it clean: This goes without explaining. While there’s no harm in repeating your last week’s workwear, make sure it’s clean and not smelling. A lot of brands today are manufacturing clothes that can be done without regular cleaning. Unless you are wearing such casual work wear, make sure it’s super clean.
