      Sports coat

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    A sports coat is considered casual wear because it is less formal than a suit jacket or blazer. It is typically made of more casual fabrics, such as tweed or corduroy, and is often worn without matching pants. Sports coats can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and are commonly worn for semi-formal events or in business casual settings.

    At a formal black-tie event, a woman's hair can be styled in either an updo or left down, depending on her personal preference and the overall look she wants to achieve. There is no strict rule that dictates how a woman should wear her hair at such an event. Therefore, the statement "a woman's hair can be styled to be worn up as well as down" is true.
