1) Go casual, but no too casual
Obviously no one wants to turn up to work on a Casual Friday wearing a full-blown suit. If you do, you’ll end up feeling left out and let's face it, you’ll come across as boring and that you’re above casual attire. It’s like showing up to a Halowween party without a costume. Where’s the fun in that?
Comparably, you don’t want to show up looking messy and unprofessional either, so try and steer away from dressing overly casual. Although you might be tempted to put on your most comfortable tracksuit set and trainers, perhaps that’s not the most appropriate attire to go to work in.
It’s fair to say that ‘casual dress’, in a work context, looks much different than what ‘casual dress’ is like when you’re hanging out with friends on the weekend. So try to avoid clothes that can come across as sloppy and messy like ripped jeans, hoodies, tracksuits and definitely don’t wear your pyjamas.
In that same logic, you should also steer clear of clothing that can be deemed inappropriate and revealing - that goes both for male and female employees. Work is not the place to show off your physical assets and the gains you’ve made in the gym. So, low-cut tops, short skirts and dresses, crop tops, muscle tees and see-through mesh tops should be avoided at all costs.
