What is the dress code like at work? Casual for me. I’m so thankful for that, too.
I worked at a company right after the dot.com bust that had a very strict dress code policy. I’m still grateful nylons were not part of the requirements, very grateful!
We did have a no denim policy though. I don’t think they even wanted a denim handbag to enter the building. It was a career services firm so we had to set the example for our clients who were looking for a job.
Today, I am glad that my work environment is casual. When we have clients in the office or an event, it’s time to pull out the business casual attire. On occasion, I have to wear a suit. I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl so it’s fun to dress up once in a while.
I do believe in that adage about dressing the part and how it can impact the mood. But some days jeans, a t-shirt and my hair in a bun suits my mood just fine!
How about you? What kind of dress code policy do you follow at work?
