Short skirts/ Midriff tops- Lately you have been constantly working on toning down your body but, it is advisable to keep your flesh tucked away in a professional environment.

T-shirts and flashy accessories- Most of the tech crowd loves to wear these. And it doesn’t stop here, more the messages written in front of the t-shirt, the better. Fashion expert suggest not to add bling to your formal wear because they are less likely to be taken seriously. You should wear plain formal shirts with less print on it.

Tracksuit or leggings- You may possibly jog with your boss during lunch break but that does not give you a reason to wear your sports garment in your workspace. According to experts, anything made of spandex should be best worn at office.

Casual footwear- Never wear footwear like crocs, ugg boots or flip-flops in your office. Wearing casual footwear spoils the professional image of yours. So invest in good quality shoes that can match your formal wear.

Tattoos and facial piercing- Although, tattoo and facial piercing may be a part of your personality but like said by the experts, it doesn’t give the right impression at any corporate office.

Avoid wearing unpressed clothes- Make sure that you iron your clothes before getting into it. Crushed or wrinkled shirt gives a very unprofessional look.
