Q: Are cutsie or trendy hats considered proper attire for offices or are they off limits inside the workplace? I work in an office and we have a very casual dress code, but we still try to dress differently than the people in my department. What would be the correct ruling on this?
A: One generally does not wear a hat during the work day, even if it does match your outfit. Hats may be worn indoors at social occasions, but really are not office attire.
