Is it okay to wear the same outfit to work twice a week?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma has to do with what you wear to work. Here is the mail :

Hi Jaime My name is Steve. I’m a first email and longtime listener, and my wife and I love your social dilemmas. I wonder if you could give me your opinion on the repetition of outfits at work in the same week? Is this correct or should you never repeat the same week? I ask because for a long time I worked from home and it didn’t matter what I was wearing. Well, about six months ago I started going back to the office to work. Well last week my wife noticed that I was wearing the same shirt on Friday that I was wearing on Monday. She said it was never acceptable to repeat the same jersey in the same week. I told her that might be a woman’s rule, but it’s not a man’s rule, especially in these strange times. She said it’s the same rule for everyone. When we were talking about this, we both thought about you and the social dilemma, so we were hoping you could use this on the radio. Is it okay to repeat shirts or outfits in the same work week or is she right and I should never repeat shirts? Thank you very much Jaime. We really appreciate that.


My point of view on this. I say wear what you want when you want. I don’t think people pay as much attention to what other people are wearing. Unless someone is wearing a shirt or dress that you really like, I wouldn’t be able to tell you what my co-workers are wearing on any given day. So for me, I say as long as it’s clean, wear whatever you want.
