Men Want Miniskirts And Ugg Boots Banned From The Office
Ok Ladies. In case you’ve been living in a bubble all your life and weren’t already aware, a new survey shows wearing certain clothing items—including hot pants, miniskirts and see-through blouses—to the office can be too distracting to your male co-workers. You don’t say?
What’s more intriguing, however, is the same study conducted by the British Heart Foundation indicates other distracting items of clothing include Ugg boots, slogan T-shirts and Crocs. Crocs? Not that anyone in their right mind would wear the horrendous footwear to the office anyway, but how on Earth are they distracting to men?
The full list of items that men want banned from the office, and the percentage of men who selected them, include:
1. Hot pants – 50 percent
2. Sheer blouses – 41 percent
3. Miniskirts – 39 percent
4. Low-cut tops – 38 percent
5. Crocs – 36 percent
6. Leopard and other animal prints – 33 percent
7. Slogan T-shirts – 32 percent
8. UGG boots – 26 percent
The same study also examined how different colored attire affects a person’s confidence. One in 10 women surveyed said they wear red in order to impress at the office, while 48 percent named a red dress as their sexiest outfit and 26 percent said red lipstick boosts their confidence.
“The clothes and colors we wear have a real impact on the way we feel and the image we project,” Gayle Brewer, senior lecturer at the ULCan School of Psychology said. “The color red is associated with confidence and power. It seems women are donning their best red dresses and suits in order to make their mark at work.”
The British Heart Foundation is urging women to wear red in February as part of National Heart Month.
