The term 'Dress for Success' was coined in the 1970's, by author John Molloy. However, the rules for business dress have changed. Since the dawn of 'business casual' dressing in the 1990's, companies continue to shift their requirements on what to wear at work to dress for success. Some have established dress codes with specific guidelines, while others leave it open for their employees to determine what's appropriate. Without defined guidelines, dressing for work can be very confusing.
