What Creative Professionals Should Never (Ever!) Wear
Kayla Baxter, Anna Hennings, and Alice Handley
Footless Leggings and Spandex/Yoga Pants
Leggings and spandex pants are in the perfect shape for your next yoga or Pilates class, not for your upcoming presentation — or even a conference call. Yes, even a call. No one can see what you’re wearing over the phone, but that’s our point: They’re never appropriate for the office, not as a layer under a skirt and especially not worn alone as pants.
What’s worse? Extremely bold-hued leggings, leggings with zipped hems or the worst — a combination of the two.
Try me instead:
Tights – both opaque and sheer – are perfectly acceptable for the office and provide the same coverage as leggings but with a polished look.
