How Casual is too Casual on Friday?

15 May '15

How casual is too casual at the office? If your office has a casual Friday option it is best not to take it too far, especially if you work in a corporate office. For women, a clean fitted dark wash jean paired with flats, boots, or heels and a dressier top with a sweater or blazer works best. This keeps the look semi-casual without looking like you just rolled out of bed.  Women should avoid wearing: yoga pants, cross-trainers, sweatshirts, ripped or distressed jeans and flip flops.  For men, again a fitted dark wash jean and a collared shirt should do the trick, paired with a dress shoe.  Men should avoid wearing T-shirts, hoodies, cross-trainers, and sloppy looking jeans.

It is important to look the part when you’re at work because what you wear not only represents who you are but also the company you work for. Dressing smart improves your self-esteem which helps you to exude more confidence and leads to more success in the work place. Thanks for reading and hope you have a great Friday!
