If she could wear a uniform of sorts to work every day, for the rest of her life, Lesley would choose to wear a t-shirt dress and sneakers—something easy to throw on, and easy to move about in. Her biggest pet peeve when it comes to the way some people dress for work, she says, is when women wear overly tight and short bandage skirts and dresses. “It just looks very unprofessional; you should be dressed to do your work. Skirts should be kept to an appropriate length and fit, and tops shouldn’t be too revealing,” she says. “It might sound very prudish but I think it’s possible to look well-dressed and put-together even if you’re in a conservative ensemble.” Even though she’s only been working for about two months, Lesley has a clear idea of what her ideal work environment would be like: supportive, and friendly, she says, “because it makes all the difference, especially on days when I’m feeling overwhelmed.” That, plus an open-plan layout, with lots of space and natural light. “And plants,” she adds. “Plants make everything better.”
