Co-workers judging what you wear?

Only 3% of American office workers don’t care what their co-workers wear to work each day, according to the results of a survey by Adecco. Everyone else is prepared to think less of people who commit office fashion faux pas.

More than 70% hate holey jeans, thong sandals, strapless tops and backless tops, while more than 50% can’t stand hoodies, shorts and short skirts.

About half despise leggings. Other unpopular articles that made the list, but were less a source of vitriol, include white socks worn with black shoes, sneakers, open-toe shoes, sleeveless tops and jeans paired with blazers.
