The 3 Things A Woman Should Never Wear To Work

Women have always suffered for fashion. But too often they actually inflict the damage on themselves. If you care about your career, do not wear any of these stylish items to work.


Unless you don't need the job.

1. Odd ponytail formations

2. Flip-flops and all variations thereof

(You're not out shopping in London on a Sunday.)

3. Uneven cardigan

No matter how well you carry it off, a style like this says "I'm a bit uneven myself."

These days you can get away with a lot when it comes to fashion at work. But styles like this push the envelope a bit too far. Top executives do not dress this way!
