What does an inclusive dress code look like now?

As employees readjust their sweatpant-heavy pandemic wardrobes for a workplace return and a generation of younger workers advocate for office crop tops, the more obvious question might be: What does any dress code look like right now? But the widespread sartorial confusion of this moment is a chance to reset your workplace’s clothing norms through a more inclusive lens, helping employees feel supported to present themselves in a way that feels authentic to them.

What would make a dress code not inclusive?

As Quentin Fears, a Black LA- based stylist, told Charter last year, dress codes have historically added an extra layer of stress for marginalized employees. “People of color still have to prove themselves more, and it’s still present in what you wear,” he said.
