It feels as though the dank winter season has lasted an eternity by the time March rolls around. Retail stores tantalize shoppers with spring wardrobe teasers beginning in mid-January, students plan spring break trips as February passes by and the days slowly get warmer and longer. With the onset of spring, the office dress code is often overlooked, particularly in the earliest warm days when employees are thrilled about the weather change.
- lighter fabric pants and jackets
- slightly roomier and lighter colored dress shirts that are still crisp and ironed
- Tan or brown cap-toe dress shoes and thinner dress socks which pair well with the season’s khaki-colored pants.
- peep-toe heels or sandals that aren’t too strappy or casual (check with your HR department for detailed descriptions of shoes that are deemed appropriate.)
- chic sheath dresses that pair nicely with a light cardigan or short-sleeved jacket
- light fabric, brightly colored blouses worn underneath 3/4 sleeve suit jackets and appropriately-styled skirts
