When it comes to dressing for casual Friday, office style can get a bit tricky. On one hand, you want to wear your favorite pair of dark jeans to the office, but on the other hand, you may find them hard to style in a way that looks professional. Fortunately, most pairs of jeans are pretty versatile when it comes to style. You don’t need a lot to create a complete look, just a few key essential items. We have some super stylish ideas for denim you can try specifically for your next casual Friday.
1- Simply Casual
Here is a look that’s both casual and classic. Try pairing dark blue straight leg jeans with a grey tank top and a fitted navy blue cardigan sweater. The cardigan adds a bit of flare and works as a blazer alternative. Cinch the waist with a thin belt but don’t button up the sweater. Add a few chic necklaces and a pair of pointy toed heels. This look is a real classic that’s super easy to wear. The only key is to find pieces that fit well. You don’t want to wear pieces that are too loose or too tight.
2- Pretty in Denim
Who says you have to wear denim pants? You could opt for a pretty jean skirt in a dark blue or black color. This style is a little bit trickier to work with, but it can be done. To make this piece work, you should opt for a solid blouse in either a dark or neutral color. Classic button-down oxford blouses work well, as do light v-neck sweaters, and simple tee shirts. Alternatively, you could choose a cool printed blouse or tee as long as it has a smallish print design in dark colors. Add a pair of stud earrings, a colorful bangle, and nude pumps.
3- Edgy Meets Classic
If you’re lucky enough to work in an environment that encourages a little bit of style creativity, here is a look that might work. Start with a pair of dark skinny or flare jeans, add a cute v-neck tee and throw on a fitted blazer. Add a pair of sandals or three inch pumps to complete the look. If you really want to stand out with style, try embellishing the collar with pretty rhinestone brooches.
