A couple of weeks ago, I had a transatlantic flight–Las Vegas to London. I wore cat slippers.
This may seem in direct conflict with my general praise of dress codes, but they aren’t contradictory.
The purpose of a dress code is to do two things:
- Set a standard, so people know what you expect of them
- Demonstrate your company brand
So, considering I was taking an overnight flight surrounded by people in pajama pants, I figured that slippers were okay for the plane. (10/10 highly recommended.)
This is not in conflict with my support of new rules in the Missouri State Legislature that require women to “cover their shoulders by wearing a jacket like a blazer, cardigan or knit blazer.”
Here’s why it’s not sexist or oppressive or necessarily bad to have dress standards.
