Torn pants are not allowed to wear as it shows some skin even the little spots. You may consider wearing full-covered pants such as slack pants and long skirt. It even makes you look proper and professional formally especially when you attend meetings. Wearing short skirts are not allowed unless it has lowered hemline. 



2. No slippers

Wearing flip flop is a big ‘NO’ when you walk around in the building. To solve this issue, it is advisable to wear fully covered shoes like loafers, stiletto or kitten heel.  The reason to wear these shoes is to avoid from unforeseen tripping or fall that might take place in your workplace.


Also, wearing proper shoes could prevent you from feeling fatigue because most people that are wearing improper footwear feel numb especially the ones who stand on hard surfaces like concrete.



3. No sleeveless

Tops baring the shoulders are not permitted in the workplace as it shows large spot of your skin and this is utterly inappropriate especially when meeting clients. Long sleeve and normal semi-casual top would be sufficient enough to fulfill the dress code requirements.


Professionalism is an identity a person should carry throughout the working hours as you are the representative of the company. 


4. No short pants

Same goes to the no sleeveless top, it applies here too. Wearing short pants has high possibility of getting unnecessary wounds if accident happens out of nowhere. Therefore, wearing long pants would protect those things to occur and it is much comfortable when you’re in closed-space with the presence of air-conditioning. Keeping yourself warm should be the highest priority all the way!
