Wearing Jeans to Work

Life today is all about work, work and more work. At the office, the dress code involves a suit and tie for men and stilettoes paired with suits for women. In the end, we find that we have jeans that we do not wear because we are in the office Monday to Saturday and Sunday we are too tired to wake up and go out, so we decide to sleep in all day. Or we have jeans, but they are a little too old to go clubbing with. Instead of wasting good jeans or looking so official all day every day, it is time we took advantage of the casual Friday and Saturdays.


1. Wear fitted jeans


There is no reason to wear the kind of jeans that you would go with to the club. If they are too tight, you run the risk of looking too casual. If they are too loose, you run the risk of looking outdated. If you are a woman, remember there is no reason why you should wear baggy mom jeans when there are tons of stylish options at affordable prices.


2. Pay attention to your shoes


For women, never wear flat shoes to work, especially if they look casual. Black leather flat shoes may be fine, but if you are wearing jeans to work, consider wearing stilettoes. For men, you can pair jeans with sneakers or dress shoes.


3. Choose your jacket wisely


The jacket or blazer you decide to pair your jeans with should be chosen carefully so that you do not end up looking like you are heading to a party. Ensure that the blazer is a neutral color like brown, blue or black and is fitted.


4. Pay attention to the color of your jeans


The color of the jeans you decide to wear is essential. Do not wear brightly colored jeans. Imagine what you would think if you walked into an office and found a person wearing yellow or red jeans to work. Choose colors like black or blue so that you look classy and trendy.


5. Accessorize


Remember to accessorize your clothes with sterling silver pendants and a dash of makeup. Do not wear too much makeup though, it may be casual Friday, but you are still going to work. For men, accessorize with an expensive-looking watch.


6. Choose the right cardigan


Sometimes, you will want to wear jeans to work during the winter when it is cold and all you want is to layer the clothes. During these times, you may have to wear a cardigan over a button-up dress shirt or a V-neck sweater over a fitted undershirt. This will dress up the pair of jeans you wear and make the look feel elegant. As a man, you can also choose to wear a button up shirt and a tie with the slim-fit pair of jeans.


Conclusion


from skinny jeans. These tend to be too casual and youthful, an impression that you do not want to take to work. Remember the casual look still needs to be somewhat official.
