The Impact of Workplace Attire on Employee Self-Perceptions
Peluchette, Joy V.; Karl, Katherine
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v18 n3 p345-360 Fall 2007
This study examined employee preferences for different styles of workplace attire and how wearing various styles of clothing affected their self-perceptions. Respondents felt most authoritative, trustworthy, and competent when wearing formal business attire but friendliest when wearing casual or business casual attire. Significant two-way interactions were found between dress preference and mode of dress worn on self-perceptions of productivity, trustworthiness, creativity, and friendliness. Suggestions for future research and implications for HRD professionals are proposed. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
