It is finally summer! This means 90 degree Mondays and a marked decline in the quality of your office wardrobe. But these are the 5 things that you should never wear to work this summer – promise us.
Bare shoulders may feel great in the heat but they are never appropriate for the workplace. They will always look more like a holiday in Cabo than serious workingwoman, no matter how you attempt to dress them up. And the risk of a wardrobe malfunction is just one more added stress that you can live without.
Anything crocheted or sheer should be left for the beach. It may feel appropriate in your dressing room but the harsh office lighting shows up everything. Make sure you wear quality fabrics with zero see through factor for the most professional workplace wear.
3. Flip flops
It may be casual Friday and you may feel super comfortable but there is nothing more unprofessional than the sound of flip flops walking down a hallway. We guarantee that a cute pair of ballet flats or sandals are just as comfortable, so save your flip flips for the beach.
We don’t care if they are “conservative” shorts; if they aren’t pants then they are not appropriate for work. Set your upper thighs free on your weekends and stick to flowing skirts and palazzo pants for warm weather bottoms.
