Employers have long hated the summer months for the dress-code disasters that inevitably accompany the change in seasons. The inability of people to make good fashion choices for their workplace attire has led to countless headaches for human resource professionals and managers everywhere and, in many cases, has been cited as a reason to not make the switch to a casual dress code.
Just ask educators. Uniforms in public schools are more popular than ever. When everyone wears the same thing, social status becomes much harder to identify.
Harvard apparently has its own take on the “school uniform” idea. It’s set to release it’s own clothing line, called “Harvard Yard.” And, according to Fashionista, the line isn’t cheap–we’ll have to wait and see how a $220 pair of pants impacts the wearer’s perceived social status.
