How do you conform to or rebel against the dress expectations at your workplace?
I dress for the client’s work environment. If they’re dressy (a bank), I dress up in suits. If they are more a factory floor, I dumb it down to flats (no heels).
I have to dress to blend in.
I don’t try and over-wear and show off if no one else is remotely close to wearing what I wear, but I do have standards for myself. I won’t wear beer t-shirts or whatever, and ripped jeans and flip flops like others there.
I just won’t.
That said, I work in a very male-centric industry, so I guess I should only wear pants and flats, and sexless button-up shirts to blend in with them but I don’t care, and I wear wrap dresses, feminine clothes, high heels, etc.
I won’t wear something too sexy like this to the office, it is too body-conscious:
But I’d wear this with a jacket for instance.
