For those who spend countless hours in three piece suits or dressed dapper on daily basis, you're almost always overjoyed to hear three wonderful words within the office: "dress down day."
Who wouldn't love to ditch their expensive duds in favor of a pair of comfortable jeans, a nice sweater or something that is a happy medium between your traditional work attire and pajamas? That respite from your regular digs is definitely an upside, whether the boss decrees dress down day on a Friday or opts for a mid week surprise for employees.
And then, of course, one person pushes the envelope a bit too far, and the subsequent memo reads as follows: "Dress Down Day is Canceled Until Further Notice." You won't have to look too far to figure out which employee ruined casual dress day for the rest of the bunch. That person is probably the same one you spotted wearing grungy clothes, ripped jeans or a T-shirt that looked good on them in college.
Those poor inner office fashion choices, even for a dress down day, probably costs the entire group the chance to wear something a little more casual once and a while.
Thanks to your sloppy co worker, you'll probably be forced to dress sensible for the foreseeable future, which begs the question: How do you properly dress down without looking shoddy as a result?
