9 Totally NSFW Office Looks From Our Favorite TV Shows and Movies

If bad taste was an HR violation, these characters would be fired ASAP! Learn what not to do from their inappropriate get ups.

Don’t Become a Liability

Joan Cusack

20th Century Fox

All that Aquanet that Joan Cusack rocked as Cyn in Working Girl has got to be an occupational fire hazard. Remember, safety first.

Don’t Scare Your Coworkers

Mimi Bobeck

Warner Bros. International Television Distribution

Think going to the ladies’ room at work is awkward enough already? Imagine the retouch time on Mimi Bobeck's look on The Drew Carey Show. You might want to just hold it.

Don’t Flaunt Your Underbutt

Cerie

NBC

We have to admit, though, if we had a body like Liz Lemon's forever under-dressed assistant Cerie on 30 Rock we'd probably prance around in hot pants 24/7 too. HR be damned!

Don’t Forget Your Pants

Kate Flannery

NBC

Take note: Unlike Meredith Palmer on The Office, your casual Friday ensemble shouldn’t feature upper thigh. Also, a bra is always a good idea.

Don't Be a Boob

Julia Roberts

UNIVERSAL / THE KOBAL COLLECTION / MARSHAK, BOB

If, like Julia Roberts in Erin Brokovich, your cleavage could serve double duty as a pencil holder, you might want to consider covering up those tatas.

Don’t Short Skirt the Issue

Calista Flockhart

20TH CENTURY FOX / THE KOBAL COLLECTION / GORMAN, GREG

Calista Flockhart's look on Ally McBeal would never fly on Law & Order. I mean, they’re like real lawyers. Dun dun.

Don’t Give Up

Tina Fey

NBC

Liz Lemon, we love ya girl, we really do, but seriously, hand over the sweatpants to Cerie. They’re never the answer. Blerg!

Don’t Wear Your Snuggie

America Ferrara

ABC/BOB D'AMICO

Yes, we know the office's air conditioning could freeze your bits off. But a ginormous frumpy poncho like America Ferrera's on Ugly Betty might actually break an unknown HR rule: too-little skin exposed.

Don’t Be Silly

Beth Behrs

Robert Voets/Warner Bros

2 Broke Girls take note: Though we love a fab high heel for work, if you’re a waitress and, uh, it’s snowing, we’ll forgive you if you wear a pair of sneaks.
