I'm new(ish) to the work world. By that I mean: I've been working since I was 18, but primarily in non-traditional environments where I could wear jeans to work, or wear a t-shirt + blazer + dark jeans + nice shoes. Now I've got a different sort of job, like most of you have.
And this whole thing with the woman fired from Citi Bank for allegedly being too hot has me even MORE confused about what proper work attire is.
I mean, to me I think that the basic stuff she's wearing is completely appropriate but its just too tight. If she went up a size, she'd have been fine. Is that accurate? Look at these pics:

I'm relatively her same size and I'm busty but nowhere near to her degree. But to the point where I have to buy tops a few sizes larger to avoid looking like... well like she looks in this pic:
I would NEVER wear that turtleneck, my god. Waaay too much for the office. Under a blazer it would be fine though right? But in general, are her pants and such all too tight? Are her tops the appropriate coverage, etc?
This outfit of hers seems totally appropriate right? Is there anything wrong with this?
And this dress seems totally inappropriate...
But then when I think about it I wonder why. I mean, is is only because she has big boobs? And is that reason enough for it to be inappropriate?
Ah, I'm so confused about all of this. And I kinda get her point. It is really hard to find work attire that fits nicely when you're oddly proportioned and somewhat on a budget.
So... advice? Thoughts? Its hard to find guidance / advice on this sort of thing.
