Jerry Krystoff is spending more time in Orlando these days developing the InterContinental Resort & Residences at the Palazzo del Lago, but he's packed his south Florida style with him. His favorite work garb includes a Polo shirt by Ralph Lauren and khaki or linen slacks. On dress-down Fridays, he likes to add a little more fun to his wardrobe, sometimes wearing cowboy boots and blue jeans.

Krystoff buys what he likes, not according to the name he sees on the label. When it comes to sunglasses, though, his brand is Prada. "I just like them," he says.

For Ken Harris, dressing for success when your office is just steps away from the beach does not include a suit and tie. Harris, who moved from Atlanta about a year ago to close on his company's purchase of the four-star Pelican Grand Beach Resort, says his typical business attire consists of a nice pair of khaki slacks paired with a Tori Richard or Tommy Bahama shirt.

"My shirts tend to be a little more comfortable than the customers'," says Harris. "I want them to understand there's no reason not to relax while they're here."
So how casual does he go? No flip-flops or cutoff jeans. "Business casual doesn't mean less professionalism," warns Harris, even at
the beach.
