We expect you to report for work in appropriate attire. The image projected by personnel is important to our company’s success. Even though we have adopted a casual dress code policy, you should exercise discretion in selecting clothes suited to a casual business environment.
For example, the following are not appropriate attire for an office environment:
• Backless or see-through shirts and/or styles that expose the abdomen, excessive skin or undergarments
• Ripped/torn clothing or jeans and low-rise styles that expose excessive skin/undergarments
• Miniskirts/dresses, short shorts and cut-offs shorts
• Stretch/stirrup pants/leggings unless combined w/mid-thigh length top
• Visible foundation garments, low cut and/or suggestive clothing
• Clothing that is unwashed or stained
• Bare feet, over the knee boots and beach shoes (rubber flip-flops)
Ouch - My wardrobe resembles some of that banned attire!
Leaving work yesterday, I mentioned to the receptionist that I will have to start abiding by the dress code.
"No miniskirts for me tomorrow," I remarked.
If she only knew! (And maybe someday, she will.)
