There’s an article on the Quill bog, Cafe Quill, today on dress codes – understanding the need for them and tips on how to follow them. The article is titled “From Louboutins to Lululemon: How casual is too casual in the workplace?“
When asked if I would be willing to share the article with my readers as part of a sponsored partnership, I didn’t have to think twice. Why? Because I have experience with dress codes and have not always fully understood some of their requirements.
I worked out of the home for many years. Many of the companies I worked for had some sort of dress code. At one company we even had to wear a uniform! I do understand the point of a loose dress code. But a uniform in an office where you never see any customers? That just doesn’t make sense to me.
The article makes some excellent points. If you have ever wondered why a dress code is a good idea for those that see customers, this article will help explain it.
