Dear Editor,

The story about been denied services due to wearing sleeveless dresses or blouses is an important factor for discussion in society globally, and not just in Jamaica.

Females must begin to put themselves together professionally if and when they are working or doing business within an organisation.

Yes, Jamaica is an island in the sun, but in a formal settings wearing a sleeveless top, and a top to cover your arms, would make a person more acceptable, and make more sense.

Just think if you were going to church and decided to wear a sleeveless top how disrespectful that would be.

Go by the rule, if in doubt, leave it out.

Use your best judgement and make sure that you are looking presentable all the time.

The bottom line is this: Sleeveless attire is for parties!
