    I live for the day that women are judged for what they bring to the table, not what they choose to wear, how they style their hair, and their choice of eyeshadow. Dress for the occasion, not for others approval.

    I didn't care what my students wore to class but I have 2 observations. 1. Many students were unable to determine appropriate dress for interviews or teaching practicum. Their attitudes were frequently: they need to accept me as I am; never realizing that 'they' didn't have to hire or place someone viewed as inappropriately dressed. 2. Leggings & yoga pants (or pajama pants) aren't that flattering.

    Anyone who thinks people are not judged by what they wear needs to take another look at the workplace.
