I've been informed that a skirt is acceptable to wear as long as it is an inch above or bellow your knees. This is to avoid a burn hazard (upper legs from a short skirt) and a trip hazard (too long a skirt can apparently be a trip hazard...), as long as you still wear tights and socks to protect your ankles a skirt is acceptable.
This is under the new(?) guidelines from autumn 2018
I wore a skirt with tights here on multiple occasions, and so did a lot of my colleagues from mine and other stores. The thing to really be concerned with is your shoes. Make sure you buy a decent, black pair with good grips, otherwise management will be on your back constantly. Luckily, you can actually order an offiicial pair of Costa uniform shoes, and Costa will put £10 towards it which is great, so they end up costing you around £15 rather than £25, You can most definitley wear a skirt that's just under knee length though, don't worry.
Definitely not, we have been told we MUST wear black trousers for safety reasons over anything (you don't want burnt legs from a coffee spill).
As far as I am aware, trousers are to be worn for safety reasons rather than aesthetic, and from that perspective, skirts were not permitted where I worked.
Wearing a skirt would be suitable
Yeah wearing a skirt is fine, as long as it's black.
You are able to wear a skirt but it has to be to a certain lenght, although I don't know what this is. But trousers are best as there is alot of bending and streching involved.
As long as you wear dark tights or leggings that is fine
No is absolutely not part of company uniform a skirt.
Yes it is part off Costa uniform had to be knee length tho
