At Very we want to help you extract the maximum fashion benefit from your daily 9 to 5 existence, so we polled women up and down the country to find out the secrets of working that dress code. When we looked over the results we discovered that while we all want to impress with our carefully considered outfits, 38% of women have revealed that they don’t want to look like they are trying too hard, they want to turn heads but look effortless while doing it.
The majority of women we surveyed believe the best way of breaking through the glass ceiling is by teetering on high heels, with a whopping 44% of women putting their faith in gravity defying footwear.
Slapping on the make-up, plunging necklines and dressing for a night out on the town during the day are all major no-no’s for fashion savvy employees, with most believing that good quality work trousers, teamed with funky knitwear or eye-catching blouses, are the way to go.
