What interests us as image consultants though, is how different people will ultimately interpret dress codes in different ways. It’s all down to our style personality you see; so whilst one woman may be horrified at the thought of having to wear 2-4 inch heels on a daily basis, another wouldn’t dream of stepping out in anything less. The key thing is that we should all have a choice as to what we wear in the workplace.
These heels may also be in a vivid colour and you can be sure that her footwear will compliment her on-trend office outfit.

Her natural style personality colleague on the other hand, will look at those glorious heels and cringe.
They’re just not for her. Instead she slips on a comfortable pair of flats worn with trousers and fixes her hair in a simple, no-fuss style to ensure it doesn’t bother her throughout the day. The J.Crew look suits her perfectly.
Both are dressed appropriately for the work environment that they’re in, just in very different ways.
Next take our romantic style personality, she may opt for some elegant Chanel-inspired court shoes with a mid-height heel.
Her office look will be more detailed, perhaps a floral printed blouse or some delicate jewellery to off-set her smart work look.
A classic style personality will opt for a more understated, slightly traditional look – a jacket and dress, skirt or trousers, comfortable yet smart shoes.
The chic style personality will have the whole outfit co-ordinated beautifully in tonal colours and with minimal make-up or a spark of jewellery. She'll be in the most up-to-date shoes either with heels or without!
