Sleeveless for Summer
Summer is here, which always brings up everyone’s favorite question – is it appropriate to go sleeveless in the office? This is a debate that seems to come up every year, and there is truly no answer that is right or wrong for anyone. But by following a few guidelines, you can easily discover if you should bare arms or not.
First and foremost, you should always reference your company’s dress code, or a supervisor, when it comes to questions of proper attire. If it clearly states in your handbook that sleeveless is a no-go, then it’s best to respect the rules and save your tanks for the weekend. In addition to the stated dress code, office environment is another factor to consider. If you work in a more conservative environment, like a law or consulting firm, we find many women show up to meetings in a cardigan or jacket. In more creative and relaxed environments like tech and advertising, it’s more common to see women walking around in sleeveless tops. In the end, do what makes you feel comfortable. If you like to bare arms in the comfort of your own office but prefer to layer up for meetings, that is the way to go. Many women we’ve spoken to said seniority is also a factor. If you’ve put in years of hard work at a company, and you feel confident you’ve “earned” the right to go sleeveless because everyone is already aware of your credentials, we say go for it.
Whether you can walk around the office all day with a sleeveless top or need to wear one under a blazer, silk is always the way to go. Not only does it look professional, it’s the perfect fabric to take your look from day to night. Silk is a natural fiber, so it will also keep you cool, even on the hottest days. Our sleeveless tops come in a number of rich hues so you can truly make your working wardrobe your own. And with our Ready Select program, you can customize them with the silks of your choice.
