What Should I NEVER Wear to My Entry-Level Job?

Showing Too Much Skin

Why not?

You can bring your midriff to work, just don’t show it. You should be covered from just below the collar bone to just above the knee … give or take a few inches, depending on your job, industry and work culture. And it goes without saying that nobody should see your underwear. Regardless of your body type, too tight is too trashy for the office. Work is not the place to be showing off your stellar abs or your signs of cellulite. Think showing off your killer bod will help you nab McDreamy? Think again. And also think about how your patients see you.

Try me instead:

No matter what, you’ll always look better in clothes that really fit. And think of how alluring you’ll feel after hours if you save your revealing looks for then!

The Exception
