(NEW YORK) -- Although summer is officially under way with record-breaking heat, we must remember not to dress for the beach if you’re heading to work.
According to CareerBuilder’s Michael Erwin, “When the weather gets this warm it’s really going to be common sense. Make sure you wear something that’s still going to be professional. That still allows you to be cool. And when you get to the office make sure you cover everything up, because it’s probably going to be cold in there as well.”
Footwear can be a major faux pas. Erwin says, “While flip-flops may be good to get you to the office when you get there you may want to change into more professional shoes.”
Lastly, when in doubt ask your boss directly what the summer dress code is before standing out at the office.
