Which style is inappropriate to wear in traditional Japanese companies for women?
b) Dresses and skirts that show your body line
c) Tank tops
The answer is….all of the above!
Dress code of course applies to the company and industry you’re working in, but in any case, there are general rules of thumb to follow to avoid questionable attire.
Here are some dos and don’ts:
Do wear stockings when wearing a skirt to cover bare skin
Don’t wear anything tightly form-fitted that shows your body line
Don’t wear tops that show too much skin, like tank tops or blouses with deep cuts
Do wear neutral colors, like white, black, grey, and beige.
Do pair a sleeveless blouse with a cardigan.
Do check if you need to wear nail polish and what colors are acceptable
Do check if you need to wear heels
The dress code in Japan is very strict and specific, so don’t forget to check with your supervisor before you start working!
