Over the last decade, the office sector has seen a dramatic shift from corporate work attire, to a more casual, relaxed dress code following the demand from the younger, creative generation. Jeans, t-shirts and even sandals are now all fashion staples for many office workers across the UK.
Our new study has revealed that 17% of employees feel more productive when dressed casually and while 30% of workers think it is important to dress smartly to work, given the chance, one in seven would happily wear slippers to the office.
With relaxed dress codes becoming more prominent in the office environment, we have put together a quiz to see if you can correctly identify the professions based on what they wear.
