I paint houses - I know, non-traditional because I'm female.

So, painters' whites (pants), tee-shirts, athletic shoes and usually a baseball cap.
And because I am female, mascara, some jewelry, perfume and pretty undies. Just because my line of work entails a necessary level of grungieness, that doesn't mean I have to totally dress like a guy!

I was always taught black suits were only for weddings, funerals and other formal occasions. Are black suits common in your profession/office? Just curious, not a criticism at all.

It's one of those "rules" of fashion. Thing is, those are just meant to be broken. If you're in a tailored black suit that fits well and doesn't look like you rented it for your sister's third wedding, you can pull it off. You just have to execute it that much better.

FYI, my current aerodynamics professor is from Gibraltar. He completed his flight training in one of the most dangerous airports, was a pilot till 2011, then joined Rutgers as a Aerospace engineering professor. He was one of the FIRST PILOTS EVER to fly the 787 in December 2009. Its truly amazing to find out that a person you see every day has done something so elite .

He usually wears a proper Shirt, tie, and polished shoes with a new blazer or trench coat every day . There are rumors in my class say that he owns over 50 different types of blazers in his wardrobe, don't know if that's true though.

Spoiler
Your job sounds very interesting, I would like to talk about it in more detail through a PM

I hope you keep your enthusiasm up...because the aviation industry will destroy you.

Just a happy FYI

Either a dress or a blouse and skirt with tights and a long sleeve cardigan or sweater if it's cold or bare legs and a short sleeve cardigan if it's warm.

I work in a university communications office where the staff dress runs the gamut from a suit and tie to jeans and a blazer. My dresses aren't particularly formal. I'm currently wearing a knee length print dress with big 1960s style houses on it, diamond patterned tights, black knee boots, and a cardigan and that fits in perfectly. Because I still sometimes am mistaken for a student, I do dress a bit nicer than others on my level because I need to look my age.

Most of my grad classes are online so I can wear whatever I'd like then.

Ice breaker boots with Carhartt gloves and a hooded woolen coat to work today . Its Snowing HARD, and I have to walk 1.5 miles.

However, when I did an Internship, the dress code at the company for men said NO jeans, shorts, tanks, T shirts, or sneakers. So , I usually wore Dress pants and shoes every day. Women's clothing code did not allow yoga pants, tanks, or anything above the knees but did allow sleeveless blouses & Jeans. Yet, women there kept complaining that the company was being too restrictive with dress codes during lunchtime.

As an Intern, I could care less about such stuff and was more focused on finishing my project than unwanted lunchtime talk.
