President Trump Reportedly Requires His Female Staffers to "Dress Like Women" © Getty President Trump Reportedly Requires His Female Staffers to "Dress Like Women" President Donald Trump is reportedly very particular about his staff's appearance - and according to a new report from Axios, that's especially true when it comes to their clothes.

According to a source who worked on the Trump campaign, looking the part is just as important as acting the part in the president's world, something that apparently applies equally to both men and women due to Trump's history of television work. The source goes on to explain that male employees "need to have a certain look" and "be sharply dressed" at all times, and that Trump is particularly obsessed with ties.

The source also revealed to Axios that Press Secretary Sean Spicer was "reamed" for his outfit at his first briefing room meeting, and that Steve Bannon gets a pass on the appearance rule because "Steve is Steve."

Meanwhile, the president reportedly prefers his female employees "to dress like women" - a statement many were quick to take issue with given its incredibly sexist implications. The source adds that "even if you're in jeans, you need to look neat and orderly" if you work for Trump, before clarifying that most women still feel pressured to wear dresses in order to impress him.

In response, #DressLikeAWoman was soon the top trending topic on Twitter - with thousands offering their own examples of what it means to "dress like women" in order to help show that femininity comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and outfits.
