In the corporate world, unless they are outrageously bad or in outrageously expensive, we are not distinguished by our outfits. We dress as elegantly as possible. We all look similar: identifiably corporate. We wear suits, ties, smart skirts, and jackets. We keep our skirts appropriately long. We keep our tops appropriately buttoned. We shine our shoes. We wear makeup. The more I think about it the more I realize how much of a costume our attire has become. While it typically goes unstated, we all conform to an overarching cultural expectation and we do it happily. Our clothing should play second fiddle to our work.
