I thought about Angie's post all day at work today in between patients and charting, and noticed that none of the more senior doctors went sleeveless. There are a lot of support staff and the younger doctors would do so.

I wasn't quite sure if sleeveless is a professional look - what does YLF think of no sleeves at the office?

I could think of sleevelessness in balance with:

  • Higher necklines
  • Longer hemlines
  • Simpler patterns
  • More neutral colours
  • Fitted sleevelessness (no droopy arm holes)
I rarely do sleeveless at work because I'm not sure of the appropriateness, but I've attached five dresses I've worn without toppers at work - no one commented on it, but I'm not sure if that's the best judge of appropriateness.
