The TikToker further explained her situation in the comments, saying her pants weren’t leggings and that she “wore them every week for a year.”

According to Jennifer, she was disciplined by HR after a colleague reported her. However, she was confused by the complaint.

“Why wait a whole year to finally tell HR something about the way I dress? The same shirts over and over again,” she wrote.

The influencer’s video quickly sparked a debate, with some pointing out that her belly would show if she raised her arms.

“It depends on HR rules, the top is so cropped it shows your midriff barely moving and it’s see-through,” one person suggested.

“Usually in office positions, women wear looser pants. Office jobs tend to favor conservative dress, at least where I’ve worked,” another added.

“If you violated the company dress code, I have no sympathy. Their company, their rules, follow or get fired,” added a third.

Others supported Jennifer, saying there was nothing wrong with her outfit.

“It’s a woman’s body that they deem ‘inappropriate’, not the clothes,” one TikTok user commented.

“I honestly don’t see how that’s inappropriate. Maybe your boss didn’t want you to look better than them,” a second wrote.

“How? Seems totally appropriate. I don’t get it,” another wrote.
