Professional Dress Standards 2010v3

  1. 1. What to Wear to Work??? A Few Things to Consider: 1. What is the cultural climate of your office? 2. How does your supervisor dress? 3. What do well-respected employees wear? 4. Does your outfit look similar to what others in your office are wearing? 5. Will you be working outside the office today? If so, you may need to bring clothing more suited to that activity.
  2. 2. There are 5 Levels of Dress 1. Casual 2. Business Casual 3. Business 4. Business Professional 5. Dressy
  3. 3. Casual Dress Casual dress clothing is usually untailored, with curved lines, round shapes, soft fabrics, light/dark contrast, unmatched, and collarless. This includes t-shirts, walking-length shorts, jeans, and sneakers.
  4. 4. Casual Dress When is it appropriate? Some examples: • 4-H Camp • Clean up at county fairgrounds • Agriculture field day or farm visit
  5. 5. Casual Dress T-shirts should be plain or promote Extension (with the logo) or Extension activities. Jeans should be “nice” – not faded, torn, or worn. Flip-flops are never appropriate while on official Extension business.
  6. 6. Business Casual Business casual is the official dress code for Extension offices. You may need to dress up if you have contact with special clientele. Or bring a more casual change of clothes if you will be participating in an outside activity.
  7. 7. Business Casual Business casual clothing can be tailored or untailored, is less structured than business clothing, uses soft fabrics, light/dark contrast, is frequently collared. The look is sometimes achieved by layering.
  8. 8. Business Business clothing is more tailored, more structured, uses contrasting colors and soft or firm fabrics, is collared, and uses ties and jackets or blazers.
  9. 9. Business Professional Business professional clothing is tailored, structured, has straight lines, is angular, has matching firm fabrics and colors, and is fitted.
  10. 10. Dressy Dressy clothing is varies in style and description. Usually it is fitted, made from high quality material, and is simplistic in style.
  11. 11. General Guidelines • Clothing should be modest and in good taste. • Pay attention to what respected employees wear. • If you question whether what you’re wearing is appropriate, change your outfit. • Your dress should reflect positively on you and Extension.
  12. 12. Questions about Dress? Ask your supervisor, District Director, Program and Staff Development or Human Resources.
