Office-appropriate attire has certainly changed over the years. Formal business suits aren’t a requirement in many workplaces, but the options available often lead to some questionable choices.
Clothes make a strong visual statement about how you see yourself. Comfort may aid productivity but, are flip-flops, sweats, jeans, and flashy or revealing clothing part of how you want to be judged? You might think you are expressing your individuality, but you could also be sending the message that you’re not a serious professional. Appropriate dress is also a way of expressing respect for the situation and the people in it. So, your look may change depending on the business circumstances.
