One in three men feel distracted by women who dress sexily for summer in the office. However, the survey found that not just women, but men too let their standards slip when it comes to dressing for work in the summer.
More than half of women say that they dress more inappropriately for work in the summer. Just three in 10 say the same of men. Four in 10 workers say women get a better deal, while just 11 per cent claim the dress code is fairer on men.
More than half of workers (53 per cent) say that when the sun shines women are most guilty of breaking the office dress code. Just one in 10 accuses men.
See-through tops are the biggest summertime "no no" for female workers, while flip-flops get the biggest thumbs down for men (74 per cent).
Surprisingly, 15 per cent of people think it inappropriate for a man to remove his tie in the summer. Almost half of employees have felt embarrassed by a colleague dressing inappropriately. A third say those who break the rules run the risk of becoming the subject of office gossip.
"Sexy summer dressing is getting workers hot under the collar," the Daily Express quoted James Constant, of comparison website uSwitchforbusiness, which commissioned the poll of 1,200 people, as saying.
"Some workers will try to get away with wearing as few clothes as possible. But while they are happy flashing the flesh, their colleagues are getting shirty about their dress sense," he added.
