The Working Dress Code
There was a time when every professional, no matter the industry, wore a suit every day. Today, there are so many variations of business casual, it's all too easy to look inappropriate, be it under or over dressed. 'What should I wear?' seems to be the question that always surfaces, especially during warmer months. First and foremost, you represent your company. You were hired for your skills, experience and personality, et al, and that's who you are.
If you work for an accounting firm or law office, take time and observe what your colleagues are wearing. While you can build, within reason, on what you see, to create your own style, you are paid to represent the company. If you're working in a creative environment, you'll see more styles. Creative dressing within reason, is appropriate and may vary depending on the office and type of office one works in.
For the most part, I like the people I work with and I would never want to offend anyone or make someone feel uncomfortable by something I wore to the showroom. The same thinking applies to our clients or the people we come in contact with on the job. A friend of mine, Eileen, recently answered that age old question quite well. "So the answer to the question, "What should I wear?" is: You will be asked to use good judgment and to be yourself, remembering that our attire matters. We need to dress to the quality and taste-level of the products we sell. As brand ambassadors for our company, we reflect the company's standards and culture, and help create the customer's impression. Beyond that, it's pretty much all up to you.
Thank you Eileen for that sage advice.
