People are always shocked when I tell them we have a color-based dress code at Sephora. The rules dictate that we dress “in concept,” even at the corporate offices, which in Sephora-speak means we are to wear black, gray, red, and/or white Mondays through Thursdays in the office. The limitation is actually a real test of my fashion creativity. It forces me to play with textures and details. It also means I have about a half-dozen pairs of black slacks of varying lengths and fabrications in rotation in my closet.
