This is quite an interesting report and we are sure to take note of it from now on to see if it truly checks out. According to a new study, women (especially working women) dress to impress on Monday but by Friday they can’t be bothered again.
A survey of women in the UK found that women put far more effort into their work attire and often choose a more “professional” look on Mondays. But as the week goes by, they incrementally become more and more casual.
To be honest it seems like it will apply to everyone and not just women. Monday signifies a new beginning of a week and what better way to enter into the new week than with your best and most flattering look? Plus you’ve had two days to prepare for your Monday look while every other day of the working week gets a few hours.
The report states that:
“Almost three-quarters of women (74 per cent) choose a smart or formal outfit on Mondays. However, the ‘sliding scale of smart’ gradually decreases as the week goes by, with Tuesday seeing 69 per cent dressing to impress, although 32 per cent admit they spend less time on their hair and makeup than they did the day before. By Wednesday almost half of women (47 per cent) have ditched their smartest outfits, with 65 per cent of these women swapping high heels for much lower ones or even flats at this mid-point in the week. Thursday breaks the downward pattern and sees 70 per cent of women planning their clothes the night before and choosing a stylish ensemble. Friday’s working wardrobe is far more casual with only 43 per cent of women describing their outfits as ‘smart’, although half of those say they still choose ‘fashionable’ clothes.”
