Just out of curiosity, what do you all wear to work?

At a client site, clothes level to match the employees. Here in AZ jeans
in winter, shorts in summer. Since I'm female, I'll also wear dresses or
skirts. Suits are rarely seen.

This is similar to what we do. We're a documentation services company (writing for other companies). At the first interview we wear standard business attire (suit, tie, etc.); the same goes whenever we first meet an important new contact at an existing client.

Thereafter, when meeting with the client, we wear what is appropriate for their site, which is usually casual wear - most of our contacts are developers and technicians. In our own offices, there is no dress code, although there is a tacit understanding that you should wear shoes and a shirt. Mostly, we wear what we feel like, which usually means casual. Doesn't appear to have hindered our professionalism so far ;-)
