I'll be graduating soon, and re-entering the workforce. Likely it will be government work. If any of you have worked with the big G before, I'm sure you know the office environment... old cheap suits, khakis and polos, jeans, and for the under 30 crowd... stripey shirts and square toed shoes. Usually only the top brass wear ties, and even then it looks awkward and awful in most cases. So what is proper dress attire for this office environment? As much as I'd love to rock a nice slim fitting suit, and tie... I can't help but wonder if it's a faux pas. I wouldn't want to make those dressed more casually feel uncomfortable, or give the impression I'm an arrogant prick (I know dressing up doesn't make you a prick... but others may not see it the same way). I'm in my mid-20s, and I've worked before with the government, so I know how uncommon it is for individuals, especially my age, to dress up on a regular basis. The job would likely be an entry level job... nothing impressive, but not undergrad paper-pushing either. So what do you think would be an appropriate dress wardrobe in this situation? I'm kind of tired of the slacks 'n shirts combo I did in the past.
