45. How do you conform to or rebel against the dress expectations at your workplace?

It's about the when/where. If there are clients, I dress to make them think I'm what they expect (and that varies WILDLY).
If I'm just out and about, it depends on the day. I'm more outlandish in the summer.
What I really need is a over the top winter coat.

There are no expectations, really. Sometimes I "rebel" by dressing neatly.

I conform to the expectation of the workplace by dressing corporately for the office however, by doing this I rebel agains the dress expectations of everyone else who is a lot more casual.

i dont do either

never dressing up for the recipients of opera. (almost) never dress up. preferably wholes in my jeans.

I'm supposed to wear the correct backpack. I wear my soft all black one with all these cool pins instead. It keeps me and my back sane.

What I wear to work is tidy and certainly would be considered as looking professional. But what I wear is very different to what other women wear. I don't wear heavily tailored clothing; I don't wear suits; I don't wear belts around the middle of dresses; I don't typically wear high heeled shoes. I wear clothes that have a little more personality, because I think fuck it, there's more to me than my job as a lawyer!

I conform to business wear

Workplace is pretty casual but I like to dress more professionally than my colleagues.

I adapt my style to the occasion but adding a personal touch to it.

I usually wear whatever I want to work unless uniform is required. I will wear what is appropriate for my work setting

I have these sports socks with Obama's face on them that only cover my feet so I wear them with my sneakers on the way to work in the summer. Wearing socks with Obama's face on them isn't that big of a deal where I work since we are all left wing in my office. It's fun to surprise my coworkers with these socks.

Aside from that I am pretty much a rule follower for our work place dress code.

I am a contractor and work from home. But sometimes I am at a co-working space, with a lot of people who look as though they are wearing like, expensive indie-designer looks, with everything clean and new and expensive. I try to understate my clothes- simple palette, simple cuts, nice fabrics to fly under the radar. Also I try to stop caring because I don't necessarily agree with that style.

I conform

I'm much more fun!

I’m always simultaneously conforming and rebelling. I’m conforming in the sense that we are allowed to wear casual clothing, but I’m rebelling in the sense that my idea of casual clothing is a dress or a skirt.
