In an effort to boost morale, improve quality, encourage better communication, and create a more comfortable work environment, Gettysburg College has implemented a casual businesswear policy for Fridays.
Casual businesswear is clothing that allows you to feel comfortable, yet always looks neat and professional. It includes comfortable pieces, such as cotton shirts and sweaters, khaki pants and jeans. You need to look sharp and professional, even though dressing casual. Please consider the day's activities when determining what to wear. It is important to remember events scheduled for Fridays. In some cases, when visitors are coming to your office, it may be necessary to dress in normal business attire.
The following are examples of acceptable casual businesswear:
|Blazers/sport coats||Casual pants|
|Casual skirts||Stirrup pants|
|Sneakers/tennis shoes||Sandals (not flip-flops, zorries)|
|Deck shoes||Flat shoes|
The following are examples of unacceptable clothing to wear:
|Wrinkled, stained or dirty clothing||Flashy, "loud" clothing|
|T-shirts with printed messages||Athletic clothing, workout garb|
|Beachwear||Sweat pants / warm-up suits|
|Lycra shorts||Halter tops|
|Check the fit of casual clothing,|
|especially the length of pants, skirts|
If you have a question about an outfit, please discuss the outfit with your supervisor before wearing it to work.
