‘Dress Like a Woman’ hashtag takes off after alleged Trump dress code

Women are using Twitter to mock a supposed White House dress code, reportedly instituted by President Donald Trump, that requires female staffers “dress like women.”

No official White House dress code has been publicized, but journalist Mike Allen spoke to a source from the Trump team who said “[the president] likes the women who work for him ‘to dress like women.'”

“We hear that women who worked in Trump’s campaign field offices — folks who spend more time knocking on doors than attending glitzy events — felt pressure to wear dresses to impress Trump,” wrote Allen.
In response to the report, women created the Twitter hashtag #DressLikeAWoman to share what dressing “like a woman” looked like to them.
