There are many different style uniforms on the market today, all doing different jobs for different roles, but which really are the best corporate wear uniforms for in the office?
A recent BBC study posted February this year suggests a large decline in smart suits, and reports that smart casual wear is on the rise. There are many benefits of casual corporate wear. By wearing casual uniforms such as polo shirts and smart fleeces, this can help staff feel more comfortable whilst in the office. It’s been suggested the more informal the office, the better the communication which can lead to lower stress levels within the busy working environment.
This can bring up much debate about the image an office environment should portray. A counter argument is if you look professional in your job, you act more professionally too. It’s suggested that people will take you a lot more seriously if dressed in a smart suit and this can provide a lasting first impression of sophistication and professionalism for your company.
As a leading corporate wear supplier, we would add to the debate that whichever type of uniform you choose, be it a suit or casual workwear, it must be well-fitting, well cared-for and kept looking smart and crisp at all times. We’ve all seen ill-fitting poorly-pressed suits and stained ties, and this can convey a slovenly image. Conversely, polos and chinos don’t need to look too “dressed down” if they have smart embroidery and are in your company colours. The old lines between smart and casual are definitely blurring as fashions and attitudes change.
