Formal Friday, get dressed up
Formal Friday is the best idea ever- get dressed up folks! Fashion in the workplace and in schools (without uniforms), has been going downhill for years. Casual is far too widespread, boring to look at and too often the norm. My 8 year old begs every week to wear his sporty, sloppy sweat pants to school. I have never agreed to this. But apparently when I’m out of town and his Dad’s in charge, he may have pulled it off once or twice. Thankfully I wasn’t there to see it.
Casual wear can come off so sloppy and unattractive, Mozz is a great guy and all but seriously… Neal Caffrey has got it going on when it comes to fashion. I think he’s pictured in a t-shirt twice in 4 seasons of White Collar (I’ve been counting) and that’s not a bad thing.

So bring it- back to formality. Of course I cannot proceed without providing a few great examples of the iconic Mad Men. If you weren’t convinced before… this should do it.

Be prepared, perhaps by keeping an emergency bow tie in your desk drawer, or if forced to improvise on Formal Friday, or any other fancy occasion here’s a smart option:
I thoroughly agree with the idea of formal Friday, get dressed up and have a great weekend!
