I'm thinking about dress codes this week, in particular, what to wear to an industry event. How dressy can jeans ever be? Do I need to wear heels or will boots suffice? Then I found this little gem on adweek.com. I think it explains my predicament perfectly. When you get dressed in the morning, and I think this is quite the case in a field like "communications", you are in a way telling people how to define you.
Right now I'm still looking for the right mix.
