Dress codes vary from office to office, but there's undoubtedly something more important wherever you work, and that's your boss's personal preference. Now, this personal preference doesn't mean that they get a say in whether or not the color yellow is your thing—it means that whether you like it or not, there are certain things you should and shouldn't wear around the office, both according to the HR handbook and according to your boss.
Well, it just so happens that I recently had the pleasure of chatting with two incredibly stylish CEOs on this exact topic. As two women who care about not only fashion but also their employees' well-being to the utmost degree, their quotes on the topic are ones you might want to pay attention to. To preface, both of these CEOs encourage personality among their employees' wardrobes, but there are definitely a couple of "mistakes" that don't go unnoticed at the office. Ready to find out what makes them tick?
Ahead, see which fashion "mistakes" Katherine Power, CEO and co-founder of Clique Brands, and Yvonne Niami, founder and CEO of N:Philanthropy, always notice—and shop pieces that will ensure you look office-appropriate 24/7.
