Fashion Police: My Co-Workers Dress Inappropriately!

There is such a thing as "Business Casual" and we are all aware of "Casual Friday's", but what makes a person take it to the level of "Club Attire" or "Weekend Grunge" clothes in the work place? I mean did nobody give them the memo at some point in life as to what is appropriate to wear and in what settings? Better yet, do they not have freinds or family who can stop the madness BEFORE they leave the house and say "Baby, That's not ok"!

Well, obviously not, because as we walk into work, meetings, conferences and in passing the water cooler continue to find that yet again someone is looking totally crazy at work. Or to be politically correct is "Dressing Inappropriately in the Workplace".

As a manager what is the best way to address this issue diplomatically?

Does your office have a dress code policy?

If you are a person that comes to work dressed in attire that most feel is inappropriate, is there a particular reason why or is this just your style?

What is the most inappropriate outfit you've seen worn at any of your past or present work places?

I've seen people come to work in pajama pants with headscarves on. Just because it was Saturday and we could dress down. Dressing down does not mean roll out of bed don't changes clothes or comb your hair. With that being said in an office environment I think casual business attire is appropriate if you are n ot coming in contact with the public and business attire is appropriate when ypu have contact with the public.

The person in this picture should be fired for stupidity.

I think everyone knows what to wear and what is not appropriate for the work place and or church. Unless you have not had any home training on wearing proper attire and undergarments. let's blame this type of inappropiate attire pictured here on being just plane stupid. I would hope any employer would send a person like this home. I also would write this person up. It's called common sense people.

As I mature, I have to come to realize that not matter what I have on. I will get attention. Sure, when I was young, tight jeans and low cut blouses were worn to go out on the town. And turning head is an understatement. I consider myself to me very intelligent so it did not take long for me to understand that I wanted to be valued for all of me not jut my big booty or boobs...lol...Some people just just are there yet or may never get there; some even feel that their body is there best asset and if it isn't showing, their are invisible. Sexy and work don't even mix! Plus....men are very creative, they know your "assets" even if you have on a toga!

i work in a nursing facility so most of the staff wears scrubs. we have an employee appreciation party every year and the clothing that the staff wear is beyond inappropriate. one woman, and i use the term loosely, came in a 'dress' that looked like it belonged to her 12 year old daughter and then decided not to wear any panties! she loves to dance so she basically was the entertainment and looked lilke she belonged on a pole in a strip club. it was embarassing. oh and i forgot to mention my company is owned by orthodox jewish men!!

Good for you WC2c. I hope they learned something. Yes showing T&A will get you attention but is it the attention you want?

I recently attended an awards dinner for my job with my wife. We noticed a pretty young lady also in attendance. She had been blessed with a very nice figure and was wearing a dress that was entirely inappropriate. It was just too short. This was a classy affair and unfortunately her look was a bit trashy. I am surprised that some of her co-workers did not pull her aside and point out to her that while this look might get her a lot of attention, it is not the attention she will need to actually move up on the job. I have mentored a few people and one of the things I tell them is dress in the work place is very important. You have to look professional. Sexy is good for the club not the job. Most bosses will see sexy as a distraction for the other workers.
