From maroon aprons to latex gloves, it's safe to the ELLE team wore a bizarre range of uniforms when they had Saturday jobs.

But, Starbucks has officially out weirded us.

On Monday, the coffee house announced it has loosened the reins on its workplace dress code to allow a more laid-back approach to baristas' uniforms.

Employees will still have to wear the compulsory green apron but can now branch out in terms of shirts, trousers, hair colours and even headwear.

According to the new dress code look book, baristas can wear a range of 'subdued shirt colors beyond black and white, including grey, navy, dark denim and brown.'

'Solids are your friend, and so are smaller, tighter, low-contrast patterns,' it added.

Er, since when did Starbucks become so fashion savvy?

In addition, employees will now be permitted to wear trousers, shorts, skirts and dresses in black, grey, navy, brown and khaki, as well as jeans in darker washes.

And baristas with dyed hair (permanent or semi-permanent) will also be able to serve customers because 'if hair colour is your style, it's welcome'. 

The best/oddest addition? 

You might soon be collecting your pre-work americano with a tip of the hat as vendors are allowed to 'top off' their looks with beanies, fedoras and other suitable hats in muted tones such as brown, grey or black.

A tall latte handed over the counter from a Bowler-hat wearing Starbucks barista – sounds like a great start to the morning.
