Your professional appearance in court says a lot about you. Little things like the jewelry you wear, the shoes on your feet and the colors you choose can make subtle changes in the way you are perceived. However, there’s a lot of truth to the words spoken by fashion designer Alexander McQueen who famously said
“Fashion should be a form of escapism, not a form of imprisonment.”
You wouldn’t know that from the way some members of the bar perceive female jurists. One female lawyer taught the only suitable attire for female jurists is a black skirt, white shirt, and low heels. It implied that lawyers should be seen and not preen, if you’re a female, but you can’t build a career wearing those boring duds. Many young women still feel imprisoned in the courtroom where fashion is concerned.
