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

Footless Leggings and Spandex/Yoga Pants


Why not?

Leggings and spandex pants are in the perfect shape for your next yoga or Pilates class, not for greeting patients in the front office or scheduling appointments. No one can see what you’re wearing over the phone, but that’s our point: They’re never appropriate at a professional office, not as a layer under a skirt and especially not worn alone as pants.

What’s worse? Extremely bold-hued leggings, leggings with zipped hems or the worst — a combination of the two.

Try me instead:

Tights – both opaque and sheer – are perfectly acceptable for the office and provide the same coverage as leggings but with a polished look.

The Exception



Acrobats, professional wrestlers

    I feel like this just made my day. Especially the "exception" categories.

    These were too funny. I worked in a corporate office and was surprised to see how many people wore flip flops.

    I have to admit, much of these items should not just apply to an entry-level job. It should be applied to out in the normal world as well!

    Franklin, your hat is pretty cool, but that doesn't mean you should wear a scrunchy.
