Laboratory Dress Code
Every laboratory’s dress code varies slightly depending on the experiments. Below I listed the general lab attire in chemistry, physics and biology labs:
- Wear close-toed shoes
- Avoid dangling jewelry
- Shorts, dresses and skirts must cover your knees, unless you’re wearing an apron or lab coat
- Wear safety goggles while working
- Optional: Wear a lab coat
- Optional: Wear gloves
Let’s break down the dress code, starting with close-toed shoes. Unless specified that you must wear gym shoes, your options are limitless. CG suggests that you avoid wedges and heels in the lab ... or your favorite Uggs in case there is a chemical spill.
Now being the most fashionable girl at lab is easy. Just make sure not to catch a sleeve in the Bunsen burner, and throw your hair back into a messy bun.
