Q: What should I wear to my company’s Fourth of July Picnic? I’m head of a large department, so I can’t look too casual, but I don’t want to look like a fuddy-duddy, either.
A: I’m sure there’s something between a pinstriped suit and a halter top in your closet that will work just fine. You do want to retain a certain degree of professionalism, even at a picnic. Smart choices include khaki slacks, Bermuda shorts, or a sundress that’s not too revealing.
