Tips For A Great Casual Friday Look

Need some tips for creating a great Casual Friday look? Not sure what’s appropriate for the workplace? Well, with the right jeans and style pieces, you can achieve an understated, yet confident work look. Use these styling tricks from the Style Experts at Lee to make your next denim ensemble exec-level chic:

1. Wear Dark Jeans

“Dark jeans are a must. Clean, dark denim says classic and sophisticated, while the distressed, boyfriend look can put off a weekend vibe.”

2. Mix It Up

“Don’t underdo your denim. Pair it with your staple work separates: a dressy blouse, cardigan or a blazer – style it just as you would a dress pant or pencil skirt.”

3. Keep The Cut Clean

“Not all denim cuts are office-friendly. Opt for clean (not slouchy) style - a straight, skinny, crop, or trouser.”

4. Decorate Your Denim

“Any of your favorite accessories will do - a nice pair of heels, colorful skinny belt or statement necklace will make you meeting-ready in minutes.”

5. Use Feminine Details

“Feeling feminine? Try layering a Lee denim jacket on top of a colorful skirt or dress. Pair it with office-chic counterparts like red lipstick and pearls to polish it off.”

There you are: sitting on the beach, covered in sunscreen, reading your favorite book, drinking your favorite drink under the cool shade of an umbrella. Life doesn't get any better than this. Suddenly, a door slams, a phone rings, a printer turns on. You jolt back into consciousness. You're at work, sitting in your cubicle, without even a hint of sunshine streaming in from outside.
