Dress Appropriately for the Job
Every situation requires a different dress code. What you might wear to the gym would probably look different than what you would wear to a fancy wedding. Similarly, a nurse would probably dress differently for work than a cook in a restaurant kitchen. But regardless of your role, you should dress appropriately for the job. If you’re having trouble navigating the dress code for your new position, think about both the clothes you wear and how you wear them.
Certain types of clothing can make it easier and safer to do your job. In a position sorting boxes in a warehouse, you might be required to wear protective footwear, like steel-toed boots, just in case something falls on your feet. A childcare worker should wear clothing that’s easy to clean and move around in so they can best assist young children without worrying about messes. When thinking about what you should wear to work, consider how your duties might affect your clothing choices. If you get stuck, try to match your wardrobe to what others are wearing.
In addition to thinking about what you should wear, you should also be mindful of your hygiene when getting dressed. Make an effort to clean your body daily. Wash daily with soap, brush your teeth before work, and make sure to put on deodorant. Your clothes should be clean as well, without visible stains or overpowering odors.
