The casualisation of the workplace is a welcome development. The effect of clothing formality, instead of a sharp professional look, was instead a reluctant and resentful workforce wearing what they did not want.
With the increased freedom to choose, workers are then confronted with the decision of what to wear. Japanese trading house company, Itochu got on the case and partnered with a department store to aid employees to revamp their dress code. That example of best practice also prevents workers going too casual and looking like they are dressing for home renovations.
While some regret this casualwear trend, ditching this suit results in a more relaxed workplace and an opportunity of individuality and self-expression.
