While dressing up in costumes can be fun, dressing for work is a different thing entirely. It can be confusing, but we hope to make the process easier! Here are some of our top tips for dressing for work in a Canadian context:
1. Dress for the job you want, not the job you have
While daily work activities typically call for more of a business casual look, it can be helpful to dress your look up a bit when it comes to interviews and the first day of work. For these instances we typically recommend business professional attire in order to really woo your future employer.
2. Keep it simple!
In both business professional and business casual dress codes, it’s typically best to stick to uncomplicated, simple, professional attire rather than vibrant colours or patterns. Simple jewelry and makeup with clean and neat hair are suggested as well. Although clown makeup is fun for Halloween, it is definitely not recommended for professional settings.
