A woman who doesn’t study workplace outfits is not worthy of work?

   Someone in the girlfriend group asked: Have you bought L blogger’s work clothes recently? I said, she has been detained for two years.
   When we talked about the topic together, we found out that everyone no longer superstitiously follows fashion bloggers to “win the workplace”. The common feeling is: since they are removed, work and life have become more refreshing.
   Once upon a time, “winning the workplace with clothes” was elevated to the level of a myth.
   The bloggers said, “Women must make themselves better and better” and “Girls must love themselves well”. The ideas all sound correct and inspiring, but how do you get better? The point is that you should be exquisite from head to toe in order to make you look “professional”. They can also cite countless exciting examples: “Wearing a certain brand of clothes for an interview, I got a job with three times the current salary” “It costs money to dress well? No, it will make you earn more”… …In this atmosphere, being an exquisite beauty in the company every day has become a customary “workplace dressing etiquette”, as if a woman who doesn’t do this is just a salted fish in the workplace who is not motivated.
   But is it really so?
   I remembered the first two years when I first went to work, and listened to the teaching of my seniors: I have to change a full set of clothes every day when I go to work, otherwise it means that you will not be home at night. In order not to leave the impression that my colleagues are fooling around, I change my clothes to a full set every day, and I have to add new equipment every month, which makes my income, which is not rich, even tighter.
   It was only later that I learned that the custom of dressing for work passed down from Japanese companies has its specific environment and cultural background. Japanese office workers will also be physically and mentally exhausted because of daily dressing and a large amount of clothes that require storage space. At that time, when I first entered the workplace, I was in a completely different environment. It was ridiculous to copy the “workplace dressing etiquette” that I didn’t understand at all and regarded it as the golden rule.
   Wearing the right clothes for the right occasion and being neat and tidy is the consensus that most people can reach. But on top of this, those arguments that overemphasize “win the workplace with outfits”, “women who don’t know how to wear outfits are hard to get promoted”, and “girls can earn more when they dress nicely” are mostly the beauty traps of consumerism. .
   Fashion bloggers spend a lot of time researching what to wear every day, which is their job, not ours. Dressing beautifully to go to work makes you feel good and confident, of course, there is nothing wrong with it, but superstitious bloggers say that winning the workplace with clothes is really putting the cart before the horse.
   Zuckerberg, who has been wearing gray T-shirts and jeans for a long time, once said: “I’m used to trying to avoid thinking about decisions that can’t contribute to society. In fact, this is based on a large number of psychological theories, even what to eat, what to wear, etc. Small decisions, repeated over and over again, will consume energy.” In other words, Xiao Zha does not spend time changing his style and dressing every day. For the same reason, Jobs and Obama have made the same decision. The real ingenuity is clumsy, nothing more than that.
   Except for fashion supermodels and bloggers, the workplace of ordinary people is not a show, and there are not so many occasions where “not beautiful will die”. I’m tired enough from work, I really don’t want to wear a slim skirt every day to keep my stomach in, walking on 9cm high heels, except for being praised by my colleagues that “I really know how to wear it”, it’s of no practical use. Rather than spending my time after get off work figuring out what to wear, I would like to sign up for a class to improve my major. After all, even if I wear a “female president suit” to make a proposal, I won’t win the favor of Party A just because I dress nicely.
   I once saw a joke on the Internet: he is a sheep herder, you are a firewood chopping Not finished! In the context of the workplace, those fashion bloggers who give you tips every day are the shepherds who chat with you, and you and I, as ordinary workplace people, each have their own firewood that must be cut.
