It's also a status thing. The higher up the position, the more likely
you need
to be formally dressed. Business casual is usually adequate for a
or tech-writing job, but if you're applying for a manager or director
you're more likely to need a suit.


Haven't had to search for a job for three years... And I've lost weight.
So I'm wondering just how much suit does a woman need? As opposed to
the male uniform, the female uniform has more variations. Could I get
by with a plain dress with a jacket over it? Or must I go out and buy a
new suit when this contract ends?

If I could get away with wearing a suit here, I would go ahead and
purchase one or two good interview suits, but sometimes Business Casual
feels over-dressy here!
