Even though I technically work in an office, the dress code isn't strictly professional. I work in student affairs, which basically means I work with students at a university in a non-academic setting. I have to look nice (so the students don't think I'm one of them - it happens!) but I think I've worn a suit maybe twice in three years. Even though my dress code isn't super-strict, I know the value of a good white dress shirt. When I first started working, I searched far and wide for a good one for a good price and finally settled on one I didn't love from Target. That shirt has since been deceased (to Salvation Army), so when In Style asked me to try one of their "perfect fit white shirts" of course I said yes. The shirt is measured by bra size, which is kind of genius (no more gaping at the buttons or pulling across the chest). Their are four styles to choose from, which is great since we all have different office environments. It costs a little more than a cheapie like me would usually spend, but I definitely think it's worth the investment.
What is your work dress code like? No one ever told me what to wear - I just kind of watched other people and made assumptions. If you work at home, do you make yourself get out of sweats? (I know I would struggle with that!)
