THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY (TGIF)
This article applies to anyone who works in a corporate establishment that observes strict formal dress code every day of the week except on Fridays.
Most banks are coming up with native wear dress code for Fridays with the aim of promoting African culture. Some of the fashion faux pax I see many bankers make when rocking their native wear to work and other inappropriate casual clothing styles they wear all in a bid to observe “Casual Friday” dress code.
The irony of this is that the fashion blunder these men commit can only be noticed by a few people who really pay attention to details or the Human Resource department in some cases. In other words, these errors could be okay outside the workplace, but not suitable in the work environment on Fridays most especially.
Different companies would have different dress codes as well as etiquette, however, I’m going to summarize the dress and etiquette rules that apply to this industry. If this pertains to you, please check out these rules below and make every effort to adhere to it.
RULES FOR EVERY CORPORATE GENT – WHAT NOT TO WEAR ON FRIDAYS
1. DO NOT WEAR ANY FORM OF SLIPPERS OR SANDALS TO WORK NO MATTER HOW COOL YOUR DRESS IS OR HOW EXPENSIVE YOUR SANDAL OR SLIP-ON IS.
The only exception is when you are wearing a native wear attire.
2. NEVER WEAR RIPPED JEANS OR TEE SHIRTS TO WORK ON FRIDAY.
This outfit style is meant for a casual outing, after work hours such as the visit to the bar, club or any other form of casual visits or meetings.
3. NEVER WEAR FACE CAPS OR ROUND NECK T-SHIRTS ALONE TO WORK ON FRIDAY IF YOU WORK IN THIS INDUSTRY SECTOR.
If you must wear a round neck t-shirt you should pair it with a nice Blazer jacket and Chinos.
4. NEVER REMOVE YOUR SHOES IN THE OFFICE OR MOVE AROUND BARE FOOTED OR ONLY YOUR SOCKS .
I see this a lot especially among IT professionals and Computer Programmers. If your shoe is too tight or hurts you when you wear it for long, please buy a new one. Contact Us and we’ll fix you up with a brand new shoe.
5. NEVER OVERDRESS TO WORK ON FRIDAY.
Wearing an Agbada or Dashiki Native wear to work on a Friday is synonymous to wearing a Double Breasted Suit to the office on Monday-Thursday. Unless you are the business owner, this dressing is considered a little bit too much for the office environment. Wear only simple native wear attires and avoid these ones.
Well, there you have it….the rules for every corporate gentleman, what not to wear to work on Friday.
