Many of us know our standby interview outfit, date night outfit and appearing in court outfit.

Today I had to pull together an outfit in which I felt comfortable both (1) reprimanding the boss of and possibly terminating an employee who'd wielded a knife on someone, and (2) hauling bags and bags of trash to an icky dumpster.

I have a small wardrobe, and I ended up choosing a tidy, collared dark but relatable color washable cotton top for credibility, with hacked blue denim, and functional shoes.

What is the wildest outfit demand your wardrobe has gotten you through?
