Recently, I was watching the film ”Woman of the Year” with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy (yes, it was in black and white and yes, I do watch films made well before I was born) and it struck me as to how much acceptable workplace apparel has changed since 1942 (yes, 1942, I know I need a life).
Gone are the days of the 3 piece suits and wingtips or A-line skirts that came below the knee. Workplace fashion today, for the most part, reflects the individuality of the wearer.
Over the years, employers have found a direct correlation with the introduction of relaxed workplace apparel standards and increased productivity. Allowing employees to individualize their wear through the addition of bold colors, prints and textures.
Out with black, grey and brown and in with French blue, marigold and fuchsia. The power tie is not just red anymore (although President Trump may disagree); it’s prints and pastels.
While many employers have relaxed the rules in how we dress at work, many do like to have some uniformity. More former button down business like banking and real estate allow for the wearing of branded polo or t-shirts on casual Fridays for example.
