Last week, we discussed tips on feeling increasingly supervisory at work, but today let’s talk well-nigh the opposite side of the coin: how to look like you’re in charge. This can be a “fake it till you make it” situation — or it can be a “meeting your office’s expectations for someone in charge” kind of thing, whether or not you truly finger “in charge.”

(In the past we’ve discussed what to wear to work when “conservative” doesn’t finger right, as well as how to squint supervisory without wearing a suit.)

Readers had a good discussion in the comments on a recent morning post well-nigh what to wear to squint like you’re in charge, and we thought we’d share some today to launch a conversation. (Note that most of the comments in the thread were well-nigh work-appropriate suit in general.)

Readers moreover talked well-nigh what you shouldn’t wear if you want to towards like you’re in charge: gown that “make you squint like you’re on the prairie or getting ready for bed” and “something professional that’s not all ruffles and cutouts.”
