Suits or Shorts

Do the clothes you wear to work or school reflect your personality, or are they a 'costume' to fit into the image of who your boss/colleagues/teachers expect you to be? What would you wear instead of 'the status quo' if it were up to you?

When I had an office job in the same company where my husband still works, the underlings in hubby's department were allowed to wear jeans every day. My boss was somewhat stricter, she wanted us to wear "business casual". Then hubby got promoted and they told him he had to wear pretty much everything except a suit jacket to work every day, and he couldn't skip the jacket if he was doing a hearing. A couple years after I left, they changed the policy again and allowed everyone to wear jeans to work every day (unless, as I said, hubby was due in court). My husband works for a company which has almost no contact with the outside world unless it's actually "client day", so I never understood why my boss was so insistent on "business casual" when hubby's boss was fine with everyone wearing jeans--not like anyone outside the company was going to see or care how you were dressed!
