How to Look Good in the Office

The Office: Look Good (but Not Distractingly Hot) at Work

A new guy joined Dunder Mifflin on last night's episode of The Office, and he's making everyone swoon. In fact, Danny Cordray, who is played by Timothy Olyphant, is so handsome, Michael thought he was a male model. I'm excited to see how Danny's going to stir things up at work. After all, he dated Pam a few years ago, and before he was hired, he used to steal clients away from Dunder. I admit, he does look pretty crushworthy, but there are many ways you can look good at the office, too! Remember, you want to look great, but not as distractingly hot as Danny is. Here are three tips you should keep in mind:


  • Stay comfortable: Wear clothing that you feel comfortable in. For example, don't wear shoes that pinch your feet or shirts so tight that you won't be able to breathe. You do not want to look like you're in pain; you want to look confident and fresh.
  • Don't overdo it: You're in the office. It's daytime. Keep those two things in mind and dress yourself appropriately. Lay off the Snooki poof and the heavy makeup.
  • Figure out the office fashion: Observe what your fellow co-workers are wearing, and follow in their footsteps. That's the easiest rule of how to dress accordingly to your company's officewear guidelines. After all, you don't want to be the one all suited up when everyone's wearing sundresses!

Nice tips.. But if your some co-workers are wearing out-of-fashion clothes, why should you walk in their boots, I think you should make a style statement of your own.

I don't think there's anything that guy can do to stop looking hot! It's not like he's wearing provocative clothing or makeup! lol
