A day at the office!

With all of the controversy surrounding the pending Debrahlee Lorenzana gender-discrimination law-suit filed against Citigroup, we can’t help but wonder about the evolution of the modern-day corporate
dress code, and what is deemed “work appropriate.”

Naturally, the definition of “work attire” varies depending on the nature/industry of your business, but there are some very basic rules, that my momma always taught me to follow when considering what to wear for a day on the job.

A day at the office!

First and foremost- appearance is everything! If you value yourself and take your job seriously, it should be reflected in everything you do, including your wardrobe! This means that under no set of circumstances should you show up to work in board-shorts and chancletas… unless your a lifeguard (in which case you should be wearing water-socks anyway)! There are plenty of ways to make business attire seasonally appropriate. Try adding some color to an otherwise bland wardrobe like this royal blue combo above, or mix a plain suit with a printed top and colorful accessories for a look that is both business chic and appropriate for spring.

Second- micro-miniskirts and cleavage are a definite NO-NO! No matter how many strides we’ve taken towards making men and women equals in the workplace, these two fashion moves scream “bimbo!” To be taken seriously, and have your work evaluated on the basis of professionalism, it is best to tell your tata’s to shut it, and let your performance speak for itself. So what do you do when the weather is nice and your in the mood to show some leg? Try a knee-length pencil skirt with a matching blazer, or for a fun yet professional look, try a full skirt paired with a minimalist top and sports jacket like the outfit shown above.
