One of the main problems with professional dress codes is that they are not always mindful of workplace conditions. The traditional three-piece suit might be fine all year round if you live in London; Arizona summers, on the other hand, are not as forgiving of such attire. Dressing in professional clothes offers many benefits; not only is it a likely requirement of your workplace, but such clothing is designed to make you appear confident, clean, and polished. The problem is that the heat of the summer works against such aims. It’s rare to find someone who, dressed to the nines, isn’t also drowning in sweat.
