my friends who go to ls in dc rarely wear anything outside of black suits and gray suits with white/blue shirts to their jobs. its sooooo boring. but dc is more conservative than nyc/boston/la so, i was hoping other places you get to change it up a little.
I have found this to be VERY true. I never had to wear a suit at the engineering firm, so working around these lawyers all day has opened my eyes to their fashion. I thought I had it down, but I was wrong. My stuff is too...for lack of a better word, liberal. I got different colored dress shirts and ties etc. No. Not how its done.
Faith hit the nail on the head. Black or Grey suits. White shirts or LIGHT blue shirts only. Conservative ties only. What I typically see brothers and sisters wearing at the first fridays or whatever around the city is not what goes here. I had to go out and buy all new sh!t, which hurts, b/c as struggling law students you'd like your loot to go towards stuff other than work clothes.
