    Sure. In that case it's like substituting pantyhose or stockings.

    I wore this to my first interview. Is this okay?
    Yup.

    The main changes needed are to cover more of your body, and to avoid insignias...go for plain, single coloured clothing that cover your arms and your legs down to your knees.

    Medium length dresses are preferable to trousers.

    As others have mentioned, wearing a T-shirt may be fine so long it doesn't have a band insignia or anything, and you wear something else on top of it. In summer, the need for a single layer may mean you will have to look for something more formal.

    I suggest you do some Google searches to get an idea of the dress code for women.

    A hint: To be safe, wear something more formal for your first few days, but watch how other women in your position dress. You may find that the place you work in is quite causal with their dress code. It will vary a lot depending on your profession and position in the business.

    Cardigans and scarves are my business casual crutches. Congrats on the new job!

    Can I get away with a dinosaur dress if I add a cardigan or is it too whimsical? This is my favorite dress.

    I can't imagine why anyone would have a problem with that combo! Unless they hate dinosaurs!

    Okay, my horrible fashion opinion:

    Business casual for girls is nicer street clothes. Dark jeans with dressier shirts and heels.. or slacks with a casual but appropriate top and flats. A modest dress with a jacket. That sort of stuff. Like the things you would see high school teachers wearing. Pretty much anything goes and it can be really comfortable. I used to wear yoga pants that looked nicer than they really were and a nice top to distract from them and regular black shoes and it worked fine all the time.

    Dinosaur dress + jacket = fine to me! As long as you look like you gave a shit I think girls are fine with almost anything in business casual zone.

    I feel you. I have boobs and hips and most business clothes are cut like boxes. I go with dresses, scarves, and cardigans pretty much constantly. I echo kyuuei that a lot of times you can totally get away with a fancy top, black shoes, and yoga pants! I used to do that all the time!!

    Well I don't live in North America, and as a liberal, surely you should welcome input from somebody of a different culture.
