How To Dress Up Your Casual Friday Jeans

16 Jan

Jeans, denim, dungarees, call them what you will, but they are part of everyone’s wardrobe with the average person owning 7 pairs! And I’m sure you count down until Friday when you can wear them to work again. But this is no reason to throw on a t-shirt and sneakers! Take this opportunity to outshine your coworkers by being comfortable but dressed professionally and fashion forward.

Here’s a few tips:

1) Wear jeans without too much fading or whiskers, no holes or tears and that fit well; this includes a length that aren’t too short or too long where you’re stepping on them.

* A skinny jean ends at the ankle or just above the ankle

* A boot cut, straight, and flare  jean ends just above the ground. It’s long enough to cover the back of the shoe but not touch the ground

2) Instead of sneakers, pair with a comfortable ballet flat, sandal, or wedge for a dressier look.

3) As an alternative to t-shirts, a well designed cotton blouse looks more pulled together but keeps you feeling casual. For a step above this, pair with a cardigan or blazer.

4) Add a great pair of earrings or necklace to tie everything together.

Here’s some great examples:

    These outfits are great. I am allowed to wear jeans to work. In fact, I don’t think anyone would care if I wore jeans, t-shirt and flip flops to work but I always choose to create outfits like the ones you posted above. I want to embrace the fact that I work in a casual workplace, yet show my co-workers and boss that I value my job and want to dress the part.
