Dear Ms. Gurpreet,
Different people have different ideas!..In my view and experience, a descent look is in Punjabi suits (with dupattas) are considered as formal dresses for women. Rapid chnages in Indian organizations have posed that if one is comfortable wearing western formals they may choose too. Such dressing is mostly preferred in BPO's, MNC's and IT companies. An added note - Avoid wearing vibrant colors and textures that are translucent.

I really don't understand what is all this fuss about wearing a dupatta. The only thing you have to take care is that the person is not vulgarly dressed. Every individual has to dress in what he or she is comfortable, as far as the dress is modest. Don't you all think there are far more important thing in an organization then dupatta.

Dear Ms. Anita P Panicker,
I hope you know in a company we have some standardized rules for employees to adhere. In such case, etiquette for wearing business attire is strictly followed to maintain professionalism. If this sounds "fuss" to you, i'm not sure if you can tell us what are the far more important things if you cant exhibit comportment.

With the rapid change in the attire attitude , there are times when a very thin line exists between a formal and casual dress. Also there is friday dressing, so I suggest that you create a policy that mentions the generic dress like a round neck T-shirts, cargos,denims, skirts that are too fancy etc are casuals. The same goes for shoes, no flip-ons, slippers, chappals,floaters etc.
Create a policy that clearly defines formal and casual attire sense as per the days. With dupatta or without dupatta is the employee's call as long it is not distracting and vulgar. Its surprising to dictate terms of dressing to mature individuals like school kids.
I hope being we need to focus on creating an happy working environment and being a preacher of what's mentioned on paper.
Finally what's the harm in casuals on weekdays as long as the attitude is not casual.
BTW - I am a formal person even on a casual dressing day. So no biased opinion :)

Dress Code : its quite important in every orgnaisation - girls need to make sure what they were - they cant wear any dress which is very attractive colours - and wearing dupta is not so important if the top is not odd for the girls - trend has to be bit changed but cant change the whole .. girls have to understand themself what they are wearing -
In short - girls cant dress themself as if they are coming in any fuction or going in party ..

Ms Sharmila Das,
Please remember that HR should play more important role in an organization, like increasing the reveniew or the organization apart form the general role. We can also contribute ideas which will play a crucial for getting more business for the firm. All the organization have dress code and incase any one is dressed vulgarly then have a word with them. Madam remember there are no kids in an organization treat them maturely.

Dear Gurpreet,
I have conducted innumerable sessions on \'corporate dressing\' and here is my take on your query:
1. Salwar kameez ideally to be worn with a dupatta. According to me, it completes the look of the outfit - just as a tie completes the look for men\'s formals. Now a days, many women do away with the dupatta because of the hassle it creates while travelling by crowded public transport. A simple thing would be to just fold and carry it while travelling and then wear when one reaches her place of work.At the cost of sounding old fashioned, I must say that the dupatta lends a certain dignity to the outfit.
Having said that, let me also elaborate that there are certain cuts and materials which lend themselves better to office clothing, and people should be aware of the dress code right at the beginning.
I know of certain companies which have left no loop holes as far as dressing for work is concerned. Issues about dupattas, sleeveless, Indo-Western, flip-flop & bea
