Exposing skin in the workplace is inappropriate. The workplace is to work not to distract your peers or others at the office or make a fashion statement. Cut out clothing styles are trendy this season but trendy does not work for an office environment. You may get away with trendy styles in the fashion or entertainment business but not in the office if you want to be taken seriously. Unfortunately fashion rules have disappeared and many women don’t know how to dress in the workplace. Women celebrities and TV anchors and personalities have been pushing the fashion envelope wearing more trendy and sexy clothing on TV and in the movies. No wonder there is confusion out there. Dressing in good taste does not mean frumpy. It means good grooming and wearing clothing that fits you well and is not too tight, too short or too low-cut.

The findings were published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour and point to the fact that women get a lot more attention from men if they are wearing high heels versus if they are wearing flats.
Power and Style, Theresa May
