Office dress codes can be confusing, but no one wants to be the one who gets noticed for wearing the wrong thing. As such, I went straight to put up this write-up.
1. Flip Flops
Not everyone has to have on an Alaia bootie or a sky high heel, but a ballet flat or flat sandal is much more polished.
2. Oversized Fishnet Tights
Unless it’s Halloween (and even then, think twice), these should never be worn in the workplace.
Anything body-con. I’d rather not be conscious of my co-workers’ bodies.
4. Wet Hair
Even if you work in the most casual environment, I strongly believe that one should never show up to work with wet hair. In fact, if you look polished from the neck up, it’s a lot easier to get away with your favorite ripped jeans or that skirt that’s maybe an inch too short.
5. Cut-Off Shorts
Somehow, what used to offend can turn on trend. However, I think we can comfortably say it’s best to stay away from cut-off denim shorts in the workplace.
6. Sheer Clothing
My office attire pet peeve is sheer clothing. Whether it’s a thin t-shirt, a diaphanous blouse, or a slightly transparent dress or skirt, it’s just not right for a professional setting. Save it!
7. Hot Pants
Hot pants. Never appropriate at the office
Unless it is allowed in that office. Some offices may allow it due to difference in office fashion policies.
Don’t wear a hat to work. Unless you are working outside in the rain, a hat sends off a very unprofessional vibe that is not appropriate for indoors—no matter how bad of a hair day you are having.
10. Visible Panty Lines
If you dare, a sheer dress with high-waisted ‘50s knickers is fun and flirty for a party, but never cool at the office, even if you work in fashion.
11. Clothing That Requires A Strapless Bra
If you need a strapless bra, rather than wearing it to work, it should be left at home.
12. Clothes Revealing Breast (Cleavage)
This so wrong.
