My workplace doesn’t have a dress code so everyone dresses very casually. Today I was wearing a top with thin straps with long pants and my shoulders were showing.

One of my coworkers “Brian” was giving me angry looks all day and when I finally asked him what’s wrong, he told me that he thought better off me than to dress in “barely any clothes” to work.

At that moment, Brian was wearing pretty short shorts and was barefoot. He dressed like this the whole summer, the office is carpeted, he only puts on his slippers if he is going to the bathroom or the kitchen.

I told Brian that I will start covering up my shoulders when he starts wearing shoes to the office. If I have to watch his hairy toes at work, he can deal with the sight of my shoulders.

That of course didn’t help, he put on his headphones and didn’t even look in my direction the rest of the workday.

Now I’m wondering if I was wrong to say that. He is a coworker and I should thrive for good work relationships, but I felt insulted so kicked back at him. Did I go too far here?
