What type of clothes do you wear for your work?

Liz2 Liz2
I suddenly realized that I don't own any decent clothes, other then a black skirt and a number of blouses, I bought for interviews.
Even though my present position is considered professional, my work outfit consists of jeans, khakis and various T'S. In cold weather; topped by sweaters.
Just wondering if I am unique in this?

I am still a student but I didn't select that option because I still dress like I am going to work the majority of the time.

I am a business student so I want to keep my image professional and clean. I believe that it helps me keep my demeanor with my goals in mind. I also like to grab up networking opportunities or future job possibilities wherever I can, and you never know when that will happen!

I also learned recently that a lot about my body language and clothes were sending off the wrong signal. I already know that the majority of communication is nonverbal (98% I think?) but I never realized that tank tops and shorter shorts (not booty short but close) send off a "Hey, look at me! I'm sexual!" type of message.

Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with that, but when I am trying to build a professional image I don't want to be viewed as promiscuous.

When I see clients I wear scrubs. Never white or blue scrubs, they scare babies and little children.

I mostly wear pretty pink or scrubs with pictures of cute things on them, so the babies don't cry. I swear babies are born with a fear of white and blue scrubs.

I'm a stay at home mom so I can wear pretty much anything I want. The wilder and crazier I dress, the more fun my kids have.

I usually don't have a whole lot of clothes on I stay at home with the kiddos and they are still young enough I don't have to get dressed. When I go back to work I will be back in scrubs.

I'm required to wear navy blue polos and khaki pants. Really hoping to go back to my old job, where I could just wear jeans and t-shirts.

I was going to first select casual, but my idea of that is wearing jeans and a nice top. At my work you can wear pretty much whatever you want. Just day to day clothes as long as you are appropriate and presentable.

I voted casual but I can wear jeans or shorts, the jeans cannot have holes and the shorts have to be knee length or so. The big no-no is T shirts, can't wear them. Tennis shoes are fine but no flip flops or open toe shoes. I can also wear a hat as long as it has the company logo or is plain.

I said other but it is semi casual. I have to wear denim jeans and long sleeved 100% cotton tshirts with 100% cotton or Kevlar sleeves. Composite toed shoes made from leather so as to not catch fire to easily. Four pairs of 100% cotton gloves or kevlar. I work for Toyota in an aluminum foundry so everything has to be all naturally fire resistant.

We don't have a dress code. Most people wear jeans and tee-shirts. But I do like wearing polos, dress shirts and others, with my jeans of course.

Jeans and t-shirts. My nice clothes get ruined during production.

We're are allowed to wear jeans but no t-shirts since I work third shift. I wear dresses and skirts almost every day now that it's warm out. I could probably count on one hand the numer of times that I have worn pants to work this summer. Or anywhere else, really.
Plus, I'm planning on applying to move to a better postion so I want to give off a more professional image.

The dress code in my company's manual is one sentence that says something like, "Please dress appropriately for the work day," and when I was hired, HR told me not to wear PJs. It's a super casual place: some folks dress up a little more, but since most of the employees are in their mid-20s, we almost all just come in jeans t-shirts or other casual attire.

I just have to wear some kind of pants, a shirt that covers your shoulders and boots that have ankle support.

I dress professionally when I go somewhere, and my comfies when I work from home.

Depending on the type of work I will be doing I either dress in suits/dresses or casual clothing. For things like installing art work I wear my grubbies, but I also have days that require suit separates, etc.

I am a pilot so uniform for me. The worst part is in the winter. Those pants are so thin, I feel like I am wearing nothing. Brrrrr!

Mainly dressy casual clothing, but I can dress down if I want to.

I have two jobs, but I can wear pretty much whatever I want. For my day job because I work from home and my night job since I don't work with customers and I'm in after hours as long as I'm dressed somewhat decently I don't have to follow the dress code. For instance nobody says anything about my flip flops, sweatpants, pj pants, shorts, tank tops, or purple hair lol.
