How dressy do you get for work?

My office isn't terribly dressy (think start-up with lots of engineers) so in some ways, I feel a little weird wearing "nice" clothes to work since there are so many folks in t-shirts, but on the other hand....if I don't wear my nice stuff to work, I'll never wear it at all!  (or at least not very much)

 

I have yet to really start busting out the heels because I usually end up feeling lazy on my way to work and just go for flats but I keep threatening myself that if I don't, I'm going to have to lighten up my closet since it's bursting at the seams at the moment.

 

So how dressy do you get for work?

I work at a boutique so I wear exactly what I post on the "what diesel are you wearing today" thread. It either consists of diesels and a tee plus either converse, creative recreation, or boots. If not that then I wear Dior Homme jeans, boots and JCrew button down.

I'm a grad teaching assistant, so on days I teach, I'll usually wear a nice top with either dress pants (usually 7FAM) or really polished jeans (also usually 7FAM or maybe Paige Hidden Hills) with pumps and some sparkly earrings. There's no hard-and-fast rule that we have to dress up (and it depends on who your supervising prof is, and if they care) but I feel so much more confident when I look pulled together that I think it helps me teach better, as silly as that sounds!

I have to go business casual. Chinos and pastel shirt and the obligatory White coat. Can't wear nice clothes, apparently its not professional. Its shit really.

Cristina7 - seems like you should bust out the heels! Others might follow suit :)

Wow, really?  In some work places, I understand having something of a uniform but that's such a bummer your employer thinks that way.  In our building, we have a company that's very large and beauty oriented (I'll refrain from naming it though)...they apparently require their employees to wear their company colors...every day...and that's it.  No other colors are allowed.  And I don't even think the people who work in our building even interface with customers, just the internal team, which makes it seem even weirder.

Hahaha, okay, I'll just do it and not be such a lazy girl.  :-)  My guilty shoe shopping conscious will thank me, I know.  And likely...it'll mean I give myself the liberty to buy more heels which is obviously a bonus.

Well I'm a doctor so it's a very conservative profession and sometimes I wish we could just wear scrubs all day coz tan chinos and pastel shirt really piss me off. My department head calls it business casual so everyone knows you're a professional. He's a bit of an ass really.

I didn't realize that you were a doctor. That's great! Where did you go to med school? It's rare to see a doc  with great style!

Went to the national university Galway. And work in the hospital adjacent. Hoping to specialise in oncology. And yeah a young stylish doctor is rare in my experience. They seem to get more stylish as they get older oddly enough! Some people don't recognise me when they meet me outside work!!! I hear you're training to be a nurse? You got far to go? Is it general or psych youre interested in?
post #10 of 15

general. but I am actually looking beyond that. I have clinicals left and then I would like to work as a nurse during the summer to help pay for medical school during spring and fall. Either that or I will just go on to get my practitioner or P.A. degree at a graduate school.

That's excellent. Best of luck with it. You obviously don't mind the hard work so it shouldn't be any problem for ya.

That's awesome, salenawilliam!  I wish I had the discipline to wear some of my nicer stuff to work.  :-)  I think I have one suit but honestly, I don't even know if it fits me any more.  I still haven't worked up to wearing heels to work yet but I've promised myself that I'm going to do it by the end of the week.

I always say to myself that I'm going to finally start dressing up for work but you can usually find me in skinny jeans, boots, and a sweater :)
