Fashion lawyers remove ‘no red bras’ dress code

A blog post by a fashion law firm warning women not to wear red bras has been removed after being deemed by bosses as inappropriate.

In the suggested dress code for future trainees, Berwin Leighton Paisner instructed women to wear “neutral T-shirt bras and non-VPL knickers.”

"You have one day, or at the very most two weeks, to make an impression and you don’t want that impression to be ‘Does he understand how to use an iron?’ or ‘Nice to know she likes red bras’,” the blog said, adding, “Nothing ruins an outfit like bumpy lace showing through your top or bulges on your bottom.”

Fashion non-nos for women also included wearing a suit jacket as a blazer, which “fools no one and looks sloppy”.

Male trainees, meanwhile, were told that skinny ties belong in "Hoxton bars, not the office" and that black suits are only suitable for "funeral attendees and bouncers".

Berwin Leighton Paisner’s management team has now removed the blog because it contained “misplaced humour”, a spokeswoman told legal website RollOnFriday.
