A lot of modern offices have become lenient on the dress code, offering more than just ‘casual-Fridays’. Jeans are now considered acceptable to wear in the office Monday-Friday.
However, this doesn’t mean you have full freedom to dress how you would on a weekend. We’ll show you exactly how to wear jeans in the office whilst still looking professional.
Maintain a polished appearance in the workplace by opting for dark wash denim. They look pretty similar to dark-coloured trousers, which is easy to pair with most colours palettes in your wardrobe. You can play it extra safe by matching with a button-up shirt, or even go for a t-shirt. Just make sure your tees and shirts are subdued and plain to maintain that professional appearance.
When styled well, skinny jeans can be a fashion-forward addition to your work wardrobe. Wear with a shirt and blazer for the perfect smart-casual work attire or a smart jumper when it’s cold if you’d like to be more casual.
Probably the most obvious and popular option is a simple pair of black jeans. They look discreet enough to pull off as smart trousers.
Don’t wear distressed denim. I repeat: do NOT wear distressed denim. It looks great for casual wear but is not smart enough for work. So keep those knees covered.
Just like blue denim may be considered too casual for the office, distressed denim is a definite no-go for most offices. Save those for the weekend.
Using the right accessories can make your outfit look classier. Pairing a sleek leather belt with your choice of jeans will pull the entire look together – especially a black belt.
Hopefully, this has helped in your search on how to dress a little more comfortable in the office, whilst still maintaining a professional image.
