WHAT TO WEAR TO WORK

More than 1/2 of employees prefer a casual dress code.

16% Very formal (suit and tie)
28% Somewhat formal (dress slacks or skirt with button-down shirt)
36% Somewhat casual (khakis and polo shirt or sweater)
20% Very casual (jeans and T-shirt)

How workers feel about casual dress codes:

86% I like them — they give me freedom to dress as I want and in more comfortable attire
9% I’m indifferent
5% I don’t like them — I’m confused about what is or isn’t appropriate and it takes me longer to get dressed

48% of employees would prefer to wear a uniform to work and never have to think about their office attire.

23% of workers say their company dress code is unclear about what is or isn’t appropriate to wear to the office.

41% of employees at least sometimes feel unsure if a piece of clothing is appropriate for work.

14% Always
27% Sometimes
30% Rarely
29% Never
