At the end of the day we’re going to be judged on how good we are at our jobs and if you’re the one that can explain how to make the cjjeasfribit soephize metqolt to ungsbteizse, then you’ll be asked to go to that meeting even if you’re wearing shorts and a ripped T in NYC in December. But otherwise it’s a good idea to dress for the job you want, not the one you have. So, the mission is making sure you stay on the right side of the what clothes you should wear to work line. It’s ok to wear comfortable but, wearing unprofessional not so much….
To start with anything you wouldn't wear to your interview for that job is out. But the best way to get a feel for how to dress for your job is to look around you. That makes that office’s casual dress code range pretty clear. You don’t have to dress like everybody else, but you should approach your work clothes look to meet the level of the look the people around you are wearing. With that, dressing at the top end of that code will be better for you than dressing at the bottom end of it. Just sayin'
And changing weather doesn’t mean you have to abandon your signature work style altogether. Just sub in heavier weight versions of your other season staples. Like instead of short sleeved shirts and light sleeveless tops move to sweaters and cardigans. This leaves your go to look the same, helps you stay warm and still be dressed in a style that works, for work.
