What Do You Wear to Work?

As mentioned earlier, I will start work on the 18th. The dress code is a bit serious in this company. I should wear formally (skirts or suits) from Mondays to Thursdays, then on Fridays, we could wear causally (like jeans). What about you? What's the dress code in your company?

Well, i am very lucky that i don't have to adhere to any dress codes where i work... mainly because i am the only one working in the office... so i get to where whatever i like... even slippers... but of course i rarely do... I hate uniforms... i think the purpose of uniforms are for the image of the company rather than the comfort of the workers... so i am glad i can choose whatereve i like to wear when going to work...

The company I work for requires dress pants of a dark color and polo shirts plus the apron with the company logo (they supply the apron and logo for free). Comfortable shoes, too.

Forgot to tell you, pants and shirts must be solid colors and no writing.

hi wondericequeen! ^__^ in our office we have a dress code and color coding. on Mondays to Thursdays, we have to wear slacks and formal skirts and blouses. on Fridays, we can go casual. but there are employees who are exempted from this dress code and they are the "contractual" employees who has the lowest salary and couldn't afford to buy uniforms. so they can wear anything as long as its presentable and they have to follow the color coding. on Monday its red, Tuesday is peach, Wednesday is blue and Thursday is white. ^__^ good luck with your new work!

Color coding? That would probably drive me insane!

Hello wondericequeen, We don't have an official dress code to follow (at least in my company where I am working now) but of course we won't wear our pyjamas to office *laughs* Normally, I prefer to wear something traditional or blouse and long pants. I do wear skirts but a long one only.

I think I am lucky to be in a company where there is not dress code. I wear jeans and shirt to work. It has to be something really comfortable because I work for 8 hours straight.

The dress code in our company is not as serious as yours. We should wear smart casual attires from Mondays to Fridays and we can wear jeans from Fridays to Saturdays. We are not allowed to wear slip-on shoes unless it has at least 2 inches heels.

Good Luck with your new job. I work in a nursing home so I do have a dress code it is scrub outfits, each department use to have their own color to wear but now we can wear whatever color we choose which is better because the same color all the time does get boring. Have a great day!

I work for myself now so I don't have to worry about it. But I did work in an office environement where we wore suits, either skirts or pants or nice dress. We also had Fri as a causal day, but jean were pushing it. It was more of a docker day or nice kaki (I wish I knew how to spell that) pants day.

My work is working as a teacher at a school. There is no real strict dress code apart from dress appropriately. Most of the time I usually wear long skirts and a nice top with sleeves. Do not usually wear blouses as do not like to take ages ironing them every morning, lol. In winter I wear black slacks and a top with sleeves. Even though teachers are supposed to dress appropriately I have seen some (few) wear short dresses above their knees and low cut tops. Do not know why they would want to wear that to work, I would be uncomfortable and feel unprofessional.

We can wear whatever we like. As we don't have to face the clients all the time. So it is free for us to decide our clothes. Usually I will wear casual clothes to work because it is very comfortable.

I am a nurse in a nursing home and have to wear a uniform. They don't care what color, as long as it is decent. We get in trouble if we wear white or light pants and you can see your underwear through it. I recently got a promotion to the office but haven't stopped wearing uniforms yet as I am not quite sure of the dress code for the office and I am still getting pulled to the floor occasionally. Congrats on your new job! I hope it's fantastic.
