Handy wardrobe guide to ensure you’re not the reason HR is sending out that dress code refresher.

Every office is different, but I think many of the hard-and-fast fashion rules can be easily squeezed in to almost any workplace setting.

Here’s my handy wardrobe guide to ensure you’re not the reason HR is sending out that dress code refresher:

  • Your neckline should never be lower than four inches below your collarbone.
  • You might have to say goodbye to spaghetti straps but if you love going sleevless then sleeveless tops extended to the edges of your shoulders are totally worth a try.
  • Who doesn’t love denims? Well, jeans necessitate more formal pairings, like a blazer and smart oxfords and you are good to go.
  • Make sure all items are pressed and as wrinkle-free as possible. Don’t go overboard with print mixing. A subtle stripe and floral is on point.
  • If you wear a slightly sheer top, make sure to top it with a blazer. Wear a camisole underneath to be extra safe.
  • The safest hemline is at the knee. Never go shorter than a few inches above the knee.
