Now for the latest advice from stylist Kalyn Johnson, of Style by Kalyn Johnson, in our series about millennial attire at work …

Q: Kalyn, what is the most common mistake that young employees make when dressing for work?      

A: I think one of the most common mistakes millennials make when dressing for work is failing to take cues from the attire of their more senior colleagues.  If you work in a business casual environment, for example, but the men always wear long-sleeved dress shirts and never roll their sleeves up follow suit initially.  Once you get your foot in the door and have begun to prove yourself, you may decide you want to shake things up a bit but at the outset make your goal one of fitting in with your colleagues and environment.

So, wait, no flip flops?
