The Argentus blog covers a lot of ground in terms of workplace topics – from company culture, to hiring, job interviews, salary negotiations, etc. (with an eye towards the Supply Chain field as often as possible) – but there’s one topic we’ve never touched on: what to wear at work.
It might not be as nuts and bolts as talking about how to work with a recruiter, or how to build your personal brand. But workplace attire is a very relevant topic, especially as the workplace changes and becomes less formal. We’re now living in a world where hoodies and sneakers are encouraged in some workplaces just as much as three-piece suits. Depending on the workplace, companies are giving employees more freedom than ever to express themselves through their fashion choices – yet there’s still an expectation of professionalism, and employees are left to contend with nebulous categories like “business casual.”
They say to dress for the job you want, not the job you have, but what if the job you want involves relatively casual dress? What do you do then? For the first time in more than a century, it’s possible to be “overdressed” in a corporate setting. In short, it’s a minefield.
U.K. menswear company T.M.Lewin reached out to us with a beautiful infographic that helps illuminate what employers are looking for from their employees when it comes to attire. We’re sharing it with you, our readers, to give you some tips for what to wear in every kind of workplace setting!
