DRESS CODE OR NO DRESS CODE

A dress code is basically a standard for dressing or wearing a certain type of clothes in an institution or organization.

Now, when it comes to the enforcement of a dress code in a university or degree awarding institution, it has always been a hot topic of discussion among the students.

Let’s explore the point of view of both the people who support the enforcement of the dress code, and the ones who don’t.

Why there should be a dress code?

The people defending the enforcement of the dress code argue that university is a level, at which students are supposed to learn professionalism. Professionals are required to dress in a proper way. Therefore, the students must also be made aware of what they can or can not wear in a professional setting. They should know what is the proper attire for a professional to deal with clients and colleagues.

Why there shouldn’t be a dress code?

People opposing the idea of implementing a dress code put forward the argument that in the modern world standards have changed. Business Formal is no longer the only acceptable attire in a formal setting. Individual style and comfort has also increased in importance.

Why there should be a dress code?

The supporters of this idea say that a dress code provides minimal uniformity. And thus, it helps bridge the gap between different social classes and cultural communities to some extent.

Why there shouldn’t be a dress code?

The people opposing this idea suggest that uniformity at university level becomes a hurdle for individuality and unique personal identity of the students. They argue that instead of being forced to wear a certain type of clothing, students should be allowed to mix and match. They should be able to explore different areas, cultures and styles of clothing.

Why there should be a dress code?

The supporters of this idea also suggest that the use of a dress code ensures the upholding of moral and ethical standards of our society. This is especially important in the case of international universities.

Why there shouldn’t be a dress code?

The people opposing the idea point out that the individual comfort is very important to most people and the enforcement of a dress code becomes a hurdle for some people as it sometimes bans the exact type of clothes they are most comfortable in, e.g. jeans etc.

I have mentioned both points of view to you, now the decision is yours. Don’t forget to tell me what you think in the comments!
