Dress Style


Outfits You Should Not Wear To Work (Photos)

Appearance matters. It's not everything, and it certainly isn't as important as our performance at work, but people do judge us based on how we look. Here are few things you should not wear in the workplace.

1. Don't Wear Dirty or Wrinkled Clothes to Work

You should always look put together when you go to work. Your clothes should be clean and unwrinkled. Avoid wearing stained items. Some people even keep a change of clothes in the office in case of a mishap.

In addition, your hair and nails should be neat and clean and your shoes must be in good condition. If you look unkempt your boss and coworkers may perceive you as someone who is careless and doesn't pay much attention to detail.

2. Don't Wear Tight or Revealing Clothing to Work

Plunging necklines, tight dresses, midriff-revealing crop tops, sheer fabrics, mini skirts, and dresses don't belong in the workplace. When you wear a very tight or revealing attire people may not respect your professionalism.

3. Don't Wear Work Clothing That Is Too Casual

If you think having to dress up for work every day is a pain, try working someplace where casual or business casual attire is allowed. When casual attire is allowed you have to figure out exactly what that means. How casual is too casual? Generally speaking, t-shirts and shorts are definitely out. Jeans may also be out, but some offices allow them, especially if they are colored dark blue or black denim.

4. Don't Wear Club Clothes to Work

Stay away from dresses that don't cover your shoulders, leather, or glittery attire unless the holiday party is that evening. Save that for social events or clubbing.

5. Don't Wear Clothes That Make It Difficult to Work

Don't wear any article of clothing that makes it hard to do your job. Those beautiful four-inch stilettos may look great on your feet but if it takes you too long to get from your desk to the copy machine because they're too hard to walk in, save them for another occasion.

Likewise, avoid wearing overly tight skirts or dresses. Aside from being a distraction to your coworkers, you don't want it to seem like being fashionable is more important than being productive.
