No. I’d wear dress pants or a skirt/dress

Depends on what city/state you’re in and the size of the firm.

In NYC you will stand out — in my experience, everyone will be in business casual

Thanks for the response! I’m not in NYC - I’m in Denver where things are much more casual.

Business casual. Sometimes I'll do a flowy skirt with a blazer because that's more comfortable than dress pants!

It depends on a lot of things, including firm and location. I usually dress business casual. Usually a nice dress with a blazer. You never know who you will meet. Just my 02. Cents.

I would say yes-

I understand now why technical fabrics are so popular! “Fancy” pants with a blazer or nice sweater works everywhere.

This is when betabrand pants come in handy! Yoga pants disguised as dress pants. Really.

Business casual is probably fine. But keep in mind that it's also a networking opportunity.
