Why Working Women Should Wear Skirts Instead Of Pants

women do better at work wearing skirtsWomen's workplace attire has been a contentious issue ever since women entered the workplace. After all, women are under social pressure to look sexually desirable, which can sometimes conflict with the office pressure to look professional. A new study in Britain offers up an answer to this clash:choose skirts, not pants.
At the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield, England, 300 people were shown images of women in navy pantsuits and skirts, their faces blurred, and asked to rate them on five criteria: confidence, success, trustworthiness, salary and flexibility. The volunteers were only given a few seconds, but if a "snap judgment" is meaningful -- and research says it is -- skirts are the better choice if women want to impress their co-workers.
