By Suzanne Kapner WSJ Mon., March 25, 2019 Jos. A. Bank, a chain known for selling suits to the corporate masses, began airing a television commercial earlier this month that features men in sport coats, khakis and jeans. With fewer men buying suits, retailers of tailored clothing are trying to adapt to a world in which it is no longer unthinkable to wear Lululemon pants to the office. “We want to send the message that we can help with more than just suits,” said Mary Beth Blake, Jos.

That's easy," said Chris Bossola, CEO … [Read more...] about Wall Street’s new dress code raises question: What to wear?
Fashion in the workplace has changed drastically throughout the last century. In the early 1900s, both men and women were dressed to the nines – but just 50 years later, casual work looks began to emerge. Pantsuits dominated women’s fashion in the 1970s, and men in the ’90s began to rock the “business casual” look. Nowadays, many people can choose to dress up or dress down for work. It’s the age-old question: What should I wear to work today? And it has been at the forefront of peoples’ minds for decades. Workplace fashion has undergone quite an evolution throughout the past 100 years, starting with dressy looks and succumbing to subtle casualness by the time the 1950s hit.
