The American Office....

By RoyLyn Palmer-Coleman

After spending a substantial amount of time in Washington DC, I believe I have fully grasped where exactly America has lost it's way....OFFICE ATTIRE...It wasn't always this way...In the 20's and 30's the red and white blue were some of the most fashionable people in the planet...Now we see ourselves drowning in an oil-filled ocean of pleated pants and short sleeve dress shirts. Your pens belong in your pocket or on your desk not on the front of your shirt. Pleated pants are an abomination and I am drafting legislation that will make those who purchase and wear them subject to heavy fines and possibly....jail time. Dressing for the office needn't break the bank. Just get a suit that fits. A simple grey cotton suit accented by a red skinny tie. Minimalism is IN especially at work. Leaving the nauseating patterned ties in the dark deep recesses of the closet...or you'll end up looking like these two.
