You are what you wear, right? So, if you want to make a good impression in the workplace, it pays to think about your attire.
The rules about what to wear to work have recently changed, according to a recent study 15% of work places have adopted a casual approach to dressing for the office. In fact, in Sweden they actually have a “no shoe” policy which means employees can only wear slippers within the work place. We are not quite there yet but we are becoming more relaxed.
“Dress for success no longer exists in the modern workplace as comfort prevails over power dressing,” Travelodge declared. In 2017 America saw a decrease in heals for women fall by 12% and the sale of woman’s trainers increased by 37%. This is showing that the high-heals which woman were made to wear to work not so long ago is finally coming to an end which I more than applaud.
Same as men wearing suits, in 2018 a member of Cambridge Analytica showed up to Westminster with a nose ring and dyed pink hair to give a speech, he was wearing a full suit to go with this look. Even the dress code is becoming more relaxed even within parliament.
When starting a new job, it is always best to dress smart as you never know what the dress code might be like once you get there. It is definitely better to be over dressed than underdressed especially for a new job.
There are always occasions where you do need to dress smart within the work place. Whether it be; meeting your boss or someone of high importance who you know likes to dress smart 24/7, if you are interviewing a new candidate for a role or meeting potential clients/current clients.
If you’re dressing casually to work, there maybe boundaries and standards which need to be kept up with. For example, try not to wear ripped jeans, this isn’t professional and depending on your profession you wouldn’t show up wearing gym wear to work when you work in an office.
Some people think that there is a benefit to dressing in a particular way for work: you can draw a clear line between work and leisure at the end of the day.
So, there you have it. The rules of workplace clothing are simple: dress well, in a way that’s appropriate to your role, and the situation you’re in. But if you’re in the running for a new job, dial up the smartness factor and turn on the style. You’ll be on the road to success in no time.
