Fashion is continuously evolving, not only on the runway but in the office too and this is largely thanks to Gen Z – the daring group of people born between the late 90s and the early 2000s. Many of them are taking to the social media app TikTok to proudly show off the direction they are taking office fashion and for many of the older generation, it is completely unacceptable.
Dozens of videos have been shared showing youngsters in their office wear and most of it is sweat pants, tank tops, short skirts, and shorts – the complete opposite of the formal pant and skirt suits that have been the office norm for all these years.
Gen Z is turning the office into a free fashion parade – and they love it!
Is this the year we finally say goodbye to all of those office dress codes that have made sure people show up to work looking professional and well put together?
If it’s up to Gen Z then it definitely is.
The group of early twenties is changing the way the office looks and they’re doing it one miniskirt at a time.
Heading to TikTok, many youngsters are sharing their work outfits and it’s nothing like it used to be.
Instead of long pants and skirt suits, they are opting for short skirts, shorts, and even crop tops!
Are dress codes outdated?
One TikToker, @Dani Klarić, a young interior decorator/creative director, posted a snap her workday outfit – and it is pretty daring, especially for work.
The look? A white mini skirt, a short-sleeve shirt worn totally unbuttoned to reveal a lacy yellow bra and a pair of sheer yellow thigh-high socks.
She captioned the post:
“If I had a corporate job this is how I would go dressed to work. Like who’s going to stop me?”

She is not the only one who believes she should be allowed to wear whatever she likes.
According to New York Post, Keely Burouncle also doesn’t pay attention to the boring old dress code and frequently stays on the daring side when it comes to office wear.

“I understand dress codes but I think they’ve become outdated,” she tells the publication.
“How a person dresses is a statement of themselves,” she said. “I want to look good so I feel good.”
