1. What is Appropriate For Work?
The best way to answer this question is for you to consider the type of industry in which you work. Depending on your line of work, you may be able to wear shorts. Just because you can wear shorts, however, does not mean that you should wear cut-offs or short-shorts. Be sure to find out your company’s dress code policy and follow it so that you can remain in good standing with your employer. Most places of business require employees to wear nice slacks or skirts. If this is the case, make sure that you do not choose pants with prints that your place of work might consider to be too wild, or skirts that are too short. A good tip to remember is that skirts will always ride up when you sit, and a skirt that might be appropriate in length while you’re standing could cause embarrassment when you are seated.
2. Do My Clothes Have to be Tailored?
Again, depending on the work culture in which you find yourself, it might be very important for you to wear tailored clothing. In most places, however, it is important that your clothing is neither too big nor too small. Overly baggy clothing conveys the message that you don’t really care about how you look, which could be interpreted as a negative attitude towards your job. On the other hand, clothing that is too tight can be provocative or even embarrassing as your undergarments may be clearly visible to anyone who passes by.
3. Does My Hairstyle Matter?
There are so many beautiful hairstyles and colors these days that we will not take the time to address each one. Rather, we will provide you with some tried and true suggestions. One of the first things you should never do is to walk into work with hair that is wet or that looks like you just got out of bed. Either one of these would communicate that you are less than serious about your job. Aside from this, be sure to check with your employer about any prohibitions they may have about the colors you want to use in your hair.
