Dear Poll: Do You Dress Sexy For Work?

I like to think I look cute when I come to work, but my dress is pretty modest and laid-back. Some women, on the other hand, use coming to the office as an excuse to look their best. I love seeing style around the office, but knowing your audience is incredibly important — seeing your co-worker's provocative side could be slightly uncomfortable! Since we're all different, tell me, do you dress sexy for work?

I dont all the time but I do enjoy putting a sexy outfit 2 to 3 times a month. It makes me feel good.

I go to work everyday in an EMT uniform...while it's tailored to fit me niiiicely, it's no way near sexy :-)

If you categorize dressing "sexy" for work like the posted picture than yes I do... I wear fitted knee-length skirts...and nice blouses BUT I would never wear anything showing cleavage or short skirts with do-me baby pumps on lol.

no - i don't dress 'sexy' but i do dress with a noticeable style so people will take a second to admire what i'm wearing. i think that there's a time and place to be 'sexy' and work is not that place. when i met my fiance, we worked at the same agency, and i did try to wear heels more and cute outfits, but no one at all would ever say that i wasn't dressing appropriately.

No, i wouldn't ever show up in a too tight or low-cut top or a mini. I find that innapropriate even for me.

A sexy woman should need to dress boarderline slutty to look sexy, she just needs her confidence. Even scrubs can be sexy ;). I find woman doctors sexy even ;), but right now I'm finding women chefs sexy :-P.

I agree with Mondaymoos - some people, many people actually, are just naturally sexy, they exude sexy. They can wear a potato sack and be sexy. I also happen to think the woman in the picture is dressed appropriately for work, how she's "standing" at the filing cabinet is another story lol.

No thanks, I work in a predominately male environment as a scientist. I'd never be taken seriously if my triple D's were hanging out for all to see.

Yup, depends on what's "sexy" I love a fitted button down shirt with slacks and high heels.. or a pencil skirt and a cardigan ... I think it's chic/ stylish but not "sexy."

LOL Jude...What, no miniskirts or bra tops in the synagogue? :shrug: I agree with most everyone...I don't dress *revealing* at work, but I certainly FEEL hella sexy in my pencil skirts, cute slacks, and blouses or tops. You know you're a grown up when *sexy* no longer equals *revealing/slutty*. :dance: great poll, Dear! I love these conversations.

I would never wear a short skirt or excessive cleavage to work, but I think it's important to look stylish and nice. It gives off a clean, put-together impression.

I like looking attractive, but not sexy. We have one woman in our office that wears mini skirts and knee high boots, and clients have commented on how inappropriate it is. It's one thing to get admiring looks around the office, but I really don't want anyone leering at me or thinking that I'm looking for a date.

I work in a synagogue, so no.

No. I dress pretty boring/conservative, partially because sexy isn't appropriate in a law office IMO, and partially because I look bad in sexy clothes. I look like a child playing dress up or something. I need a stylist! I think the lady's outfit in the picture is fine, cute even. it's the bending over that might cause a problem!

Since I have to wear a uniform, definitely not sexy at all.

Definitely nothing provocative. I work in academics, and I would really lose face if I dressed up sexy. I mean most academics even consider loose hair or slight makeup 'over the top', so sexy clothes is really a no no! 'Austerity' ( ;) ) is very important to make an impression in intellectual circles. I try to look polished an well-groomed, but I maintain my simplicity.

My office is tiny and we don't meet with customers in person so it is extremely casual. Jeans, tshirts, flip flops - I could probably walk in in my PJ's and it would be OK.

The problem is really what are we considering to be sexy? What that woman is wearing in the pic would be completely modest if she was wearing a blazer with it. And I have to mention that clothing stores from The Limited to Saks tout the "young professional" look to be more provocative then days of old. Look at the shoes they are giving us to wear?! and you want me to throw on penny loafers ?? So if turtle necks and badly fitting pants are considered conservitive, then heck no I'm not going to do it. But the collered shirts with some stretch, and "The Editor" pants from Express are my daily uniform... I can't help it if guys in the office have a thing for that "Librarian" Look... :)
