No PJs in College? No Way!

September 23, 2007 by SheFindsErin

Remember those college days when late nights were a given, dragging yourself out of bed in the morning was next to impossible, and throwing on (or staying in) comfy flannel PJ bottoms seemed the only wardrobe option that would allow you to get to class on time? Students at Illinois State University's College of Business no longer know that luxury. In an effort to foster a more professional atmosphere — and to put the kibosh on sloppy, ultra-casual dressing — the College of Business enacted a business-casual-only dress code.

Stating that students without the appropriate clothing "should plan on purchasing some before attending courses this fall," the PJ and casual clothing ban requires all College of Business students look well-groomed and professional, with the risk of being asked to leave class and receive a "0" grade for all missed work if dress code standards aren't met. A letter sent to College of Business students reported that feedback about the dress code from students, faculty and the University's local business partners had been positive and that the increased "professionalism led to a better learning environment."

What do you think: is college the time to let your hair down and wear sweatpants if you want to or should students get ready for the buttoned-up world of work they have ahead of them? How do you feel about your office's dress code policy — too lax, too rigid, or just perfect? Let us know in the comments section below.

And don't forget to check out these stylish, yet work-appropriate options.
