How Do I Know What's Too Casual for the Office?

Casual Officewear Dont's

When working in a office with a casual dress code policy, it's hard to know what kind of clothing is okay and what is just too-casual. If you get too laid-back with your wardrobe, you run the risk of being seen as a person who does not take their job seriously enough. Here are ten no-nos for office fashion, even in a casual environment:

  • Sweatpants (of any kind, fabric or color)
  • Jeans with holes, frays, patches or loud embellishments
  • Long, baggy t-shirts
  • Midriff-baring shirts
  • Short shorts
  • See-through or mesh anything
  • Dirty, raggedy sneakers
  • Miniskirts
  • Extreme cleavage baring tops
  • Tube tops (or any other strapless top) without a jacket
