Retail Companies That Dictate Their Employee's Dress Code

1. Abercrombie & Fitch

Their image is all about sex appeal. They require ’natural’ hairstyles and employees are not allowed to wear black. In fact, employees may only wear the brand’s clothes.

Do you ever feel like you’re walking into a store full of cloned sales assistants? Notice that every employee working in your favourite clothes store look cunningly alike?

The majority of retail stores go by the saying ‘judge a book by its cover’. There are strict rules when it comes to how an employee dresses, how they do their hair, and even how they apply their make-up. A sales assistant’s appearance is the be-all and end-all of a retail store. The all-important and essential element of a retail’s brand is how the employees come across. Their appearance is considered a reflection of the brand.

So be weary when applying to work for Victoria’s Secret or Abercrombie & Fitch. Those managers will be sizing up your outfit and checking out your hairstyle. Whether you like it or not, your wardrobe may be entirely different to theirs and you could be in for a serious makeover…
