What Is Your Company's Dress Code for the Summer?

Summer is approaching. To many people, now is the time to clean up the wardrobe and shop for the new season. A kind reminder is that people need to consider their company’s dress code when adding new items to the closet.

It is true that many companies allow employees to dress more “casual” at work these days; people also have different definitions for “business casual” attire. The problem is that more employees “cross their lines,” as suggested by the Society for Human Resource Management. Accordingly, this CNN News video provides some suggestions:

For Men
(To wear) Polo shirts
Belts that match shoes
Pants that are the proper length
Socks that hit middle of calf

For Women
No cleavage
Clothing should not be too tight
Shirts should be no shorter than 2 inches above knee

Definitely no flig flog for anyone. Do you notice that your coworkers would dress differently in the summer? What is your company’s dress code for the summer? Do you shop more or less according to your company’s dress code? If you find your coworkers dress inappropriately, what would you do?
