Plunging necklines, UGG Boots and piercings are amongst the top office fashion betes noires for women, according to a recent poll by comparison site stylecompare.co.uk. Fake tan, visible underwear and jeans are also considered office workwear blunders.

Six in ten bosses objected to cleavage being on show, with women chiefs more offended at this workplace display than their male counterparts

The top ten fashion faux pas for women to commit in the workplace comprised:

  1. Cleavage
  2. Frayed clothing
  3. UGG Boots
  4. Jeans
  5. Piercings
  6. Visible underwear
  7. Fake tan
  8. Stilettos/pointed shoes
  9. Bling jewellery
  10. Wedge heels

Said stylecompare’s Julie Rebaudo, “First impressions count for so much in an interview. Getting your outfit right is part and parcel of the preparation process.”
