Then an art director at Saatchi & Saatchi in New York, Kahl discussed the 'unnecessary panic' of choosing outfits, and the expectation she felt at having to look good. Kahl felt her male co-workers didn't suffer the same sartorial problems.
Also last year, a male Australian TV host made a similar point. He'd been wearing the same blue suit every day for a year on Channel Nine's Today programme. Nobody noticed.
Karl Stefanovic said at the time:
I'm judged on my interviews, my appalling sense of humour – on how I do my job, basically. Whereas women are quite often judged on what they're wearing or how their hair is.
Kahl has since moved to Sweden, Tech Insider writes. She's changed industries and now works as a creative manager for Sony Music. But she's still wearing her tell-tale black and white combo, and her image still resonates with workers who want to be freed from the pressures of workplace clothing decisions.
