I’m a Starbucks barista — I've been dress-coded so many times for what I wear under my apron | The Sun

A STARBUCKS barista has revealed the outfits that got her reprimanded multiple times for violating the company's dress code.

In a TikTok video that has nearly 10,000 likes, the employee shared the various clothing pieces she was told she couldn't wear.

"Things that I was told I couldn't wear to work as a Starbucks barista," she said in the post.

"They didn't like these shoes," she said, showing off black sneakers.

The barista then got a new pair of shoes, another pair of sneakers, which they also didn't like.

"Third time's the charm, right?" she asked.

Her third pair of sneakers also drew criticism from management.

"Nope, these had 'too much white' to be an accent color," she said.

A full-sleeve, turtleneck beige top was vetoed for being "too light," and a Starbucks United T-shirt was rejected for being "too union."

"I'm sure it has nothing to do with the new enforcement of dress code rules to retaliate against pro-union workers," she said sarcastically.

People took to the comments to share their thoughts.

"If it's such an issue they should pay for and provide shoes, pants, shirts," said one viewer.

"Honestly I'm sure customers just want their food/drink."

"My store now SUDDENLY has issues with facial piercings when they didn't before our unionization," agreed another Starbucks employee.

"I can't even tell you what Starbucks baristas wear other than the apron," joked a third.
