Let's Talk: Work-Wear in Blue & Yellow

Conservative Look: 1//2//3//4//5//6 Business Casual Look: 1//2//3//4 Funky Look: 1//2//3//4//5//6
Having worked in various environments throughout my professional career, I have had to update my look and adhere to various wardrobe requirements as outlined by company policy for each place. It has actually been quite interesting to see how my look would change with each job.
If you work in Management consulting, I find now days you can be a bit more playful, but still remain very professional, especially if you are meeting a client that day. Most places I find fall under the business casual look, where you must still look professional and put together, but  looks are a bit more day to night friendly. In funky or casual environments, you can use your clothes as a creative outlet and probably don't have any  rules other then to not be offensive!

One rule I do have: If you ever question what you are wearing or require a second opinion to determine its appropriateness - you should probably just change! (This is one that I hear from many HR professionals).

What category does your workplace fall under? Do you wish it was different?

  2. these are all really great looks, nice job!

    my workplace is business casual/funky work wear and i love it! i totally agree that if you are questioning whether or not something is appropriate, that probably means that it isn't! or at least it is not worth risking it!
