Let's be honest: dress codes can sometimes feel limiting especially for a person who enjoys the freedom to dress up however he/she pleases. As with work, there are days when I'm tempted to just pull up in a loose top and jeans for maximum comfort. Although this would be okay in theory, seeing as there wouldn't be any inappropriate skin-baring, it still does become inappropriate in the sense that it makes me look unprofessional. But dress codes don't just apply at work. Sometimes, you'll find them in the shape of party themes, costume events, etc. And when these days come, I take on the challenge instead.


If you're someone who feels like dress codes "cage" your style, flip the switch on that mindset! Take on the challenge too, and find a way to work with your wardrobe to come up with an outfit that fits the code without skimping on your personal style. Because if you think about it, if you're constantly free to wear what you want without being challenged, you won't be able to see what other looks you can actually do with the clothes you already have.

  1. Agree! We wear business casual from Monday to Thursdays and smart casual on Fridays. Though there are days that I run out of ideas on what to wear but I always end up mixin up pieces I have worn before para hindi magmukhang inulit. HAHA!
