 Question Detail

Question ID# - 113

 Carrie

 Janet, My roommate and I work at a small very trendy retro bar. The basic bar consists of disco lights with black leather couches and lime green couches. My question is this, our uniforms are all black tops, mini skirts and gogo boots. Which we hate!!!! Not only are the boots extremely hard to work in, but the sexual harassment level is out of control. We have finally convinced the owner to a uniform change that everyone can agree on. But we need ideas. The owner wants tight, revealing uniforms, we want practical but flattering uniforms. any suggestions?



 Janet:

  Go for a Rudi Gernreich style MOD solution, like an A-line tunic over leggings...it will be cute, sexy and suitable for your job. Or try a fun look with a wild Pucci-style print mini-dress with dark leggings or opaque hose and high boots. Comfort in body and mind is the only way to get through the work day!
