How To Wear Denim To Work

When you want to go casual but stay professional, here"s how to wear jeans to work. Denim has been acceptable in many workplaces for a while, but looking too casual is never ok. When you are combing your closet for something to wear at the end of the work week, remember these two things:

1. Shade is not just for when you are in the sun The darker the wash of the denim the more polished your look. Dark and plain are the keys to successful casual dressing. Paired with a jacket, tailored shirt or sweater, the look says Im modern and confident, but ready to get down to business.

2. its all about accessorizing Jeans must be paired with a great pair of heels or boots and a nice belt for a finished look. There is no room for running shoes or flip flops in the workplace. There is a big difference between business causal and weekend casual.

Always reflect your personal style while keeping a professional attitude.Your body shape should be the final factor in deciding what cut of denim is appropriate for your office. If you are curvy, skinny jeans are off limits. You do not want that kind of attention in the workplace. Extreme low rise styles, and baggy style boyfriend jeans are also hard to pull off, and not business appropriate. Save them for the weekend. The best denim cut for the office is the boot cut. This silhouette flatters everyone, look stellar with every kind of shoe, and is comfortable to wear.

Popular denim choices are:

Cropped 50"s style jeans
Skinny cargo jeans
Tapered looks
Straight slouched style
Paneled denim
Revamped 70"s style

And these finishes work too

Tie Dye ,light blues, graffiti prints and acid washes
Dark shades and saturated colors
Clean indigo (mercerised denims)
Shines and coatings.
