Does Casual Dress Hurt Your Income?

In some ways, this is a no brainer – the person required to wear a suit to work probably makes more than the person required to wear a uniform. But Payscale.com breaks it down even further, showing us that it’s not just dressing for the job you want, but that income can actually correlate to a job’s dress code environment. So, which jobs give you the potential for higher earning? And does casual dress really set you up to earn less? Read the full article by clicking here at Payscale.com.

One thing this article doesn’t take into account are entrepreneurs. For me, my daily dress code as an entrepreneur is trouser jeans, a nice sweater, and a jacket if I’m going to a meeting. Of course, I dress up more for corporate meetings or encounters with specific people, but in general, I stick to business casual. So does the CEO of Facebook, eh?

Tell us your thoughts – does dressing up really set you up for more money? Or is Payscale.com giving us correlation without causation?
