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

Leather Pants

Why not?

Leather pants are perfectly career-appropriate if you’re auditioning for Rock of Love, and that’s about it. It should go without saying (but we’ll still say it) that you should never go to work dressed like you’re about to do some tequila shots with the band unless your job somehow involves doing tequila shots with the band.

Try me instead:

If you’re looking for a little edge in your work wardrobe, try a perfectly severe black blazer, skinny black pants, or a purse with a serious amount of hardware.

The Exception

The cast of Rock of Love, outlaw bikers.
