Men Want Skimpy Women's Clothing Banned At Work

Psst, ladies: A new survey reveals your male co-workers want to ban some of your wardrobe items because they're too revealing. What do they want you to stop wearing to work, exactly? Let's dress down the list!

First, I should clarify that the research is a survey of British men conducted by the British Heart Foundation. So take what I'm about to reveal with a grain of salt, an international perspective, or some fashion metaphor that's not coming to mind. That said, here's the list of women's clothing items labeled far too distracting and/or unprofessional to be worn at work:

Hotpants (50% of the men surveyed said they're too distracting)

Sheer blouses (41%)

Miniskirts (39%)

Low cut tops (38%)

Crocs (36%)

Anything with leopard or animal print (33%)

Slogan t-shirts (32%)

UGG boots (26%)

Amen, fellas. I'm totally on board with you about the UGG boots. They are ugg-ly, even outside of work.

Now that we know what the men are thinking, where are the women on the wearable issues of the day? The British Heart Foundation surveyed them too, and their responses were, shall we say, colorful. More than one-third of the women surveyed said that wearing red makes them feel more confident, while slightly more than one-quarter (26%) said that a touch of red lipstick is a definite confidence-builder. Meanwhile, nearly half (48%) said that a red dress is the sexiest thing they could possibly wear to work. Well, red is a pretty awesome color. Just don't go overboard with the Gwen Stefani look at work, I guess.

So there you have it, ladies. The list of 80s-inspired clothing items that could make you "too irresistible" at work, which as we've learned isn't a good thing to be in Iowa. I'm going to stop here, because I have to do some laundry. I'll start with a load of reds.

  6. I think the survey gives us a thought about red color. We didn't know the actual beauties of red color. Thanks for sharing with us of red color's contribution to us.

Seven tips for dealing with a jealous coworker

Look at you, doing so well at work! We're so happy for you. Well, most of us are happy for you and refuse to spend the entire work day talking behind your back. Let's talk about how to handle our jealous co-workers!Like every other professional, you've no doubt experienced your share of failures and successes. Lately, however, things seem to be going your way at work. And how! Perhaps you've managed to ace an important project this quarter, been instrumental in landing a huge client, earned some well-deserved rewards for this and that, or -- egads! -- been given a slight promotion or additional work responsibilities (e.g., the work responsibilities you actually want).You're quietly chuffed, but somehow your co-workers seem none too pleased with this rapid turn of events. Oh no, what should you do now?It's a workplace tale older than the disjointed last season of Mad Men. The playing field in the department was even, cozy and overall very friendly -- until so-an…

Employees Blame Technology For Slowing Them Down At Work

Do you feel like you're always working, but never getting very much done? If so, you're not alone. Too much technology, and too much red tape, keep slowing us down at work. But technology, and more of it, is supposed to make our lives easier! Too much technology, however, does not compute for employees. A new SAP/Knowledge@Wharton survey of almost 700 corporate employees finds a full 60% of respondents blame technology "for inhibiting their ability to meet strategic goals." Gee, anyone who has ever used the self-checkout line at the grocery store can tell you that. However, 40% surveyed said that looking for ways to simplify the technology has been "a low priority" for their company. Too much paperwork is an on-going problem for the workplace, too. A new ServiceNow survey of nearly 1,000 managers finds that 90% are doing too much administrative work, no matter the size of the company. This paperwork includes filling out forms, writing status updates, …

Is Your Co-worker Always Late For Work?

You've started the workday, but where is your co-worker? Oh, she's running late again, just like yesterday. And the day before. And the day before that. Let's get an early start on solving her tardiness problem, shall we? Working with someone who is consistently late is one of the most annoying aspects of office life, and also one of the most common, unfortunately. It's a universal theme of the workplace that everyone will get to work on time (give or take a few minutes...) except for the employee who is egregiously late nearly every day. And the excuses can get pretty amazing. Employees became more punctual as the Great Recession lingered, at least according to surveys. Everyone, that is, except for your able-bodied but habitually-tardy co-worker. It's bad enough dealing with tardiness when you're a manager, but it can be even more frustrating when you're a rank-and-file peer without any magical "shape up or ship out" managerial powers. So you…
