How To Wear Jeans To The Office

Once considered by the white-collar community to be ‘weekend wear only’, jeans have taken on a new life with the turn of the century. No more are jeans only for cowboys and rough-and-tumble laborers, no ma’am! Nowadays, jeans have become much more universal in any stylish person’s wardrobe.
With more office cultures embracing a casual-professional vibe when it comes to work wear, it’s awesome to see that wearing jeans to work is becoming more acceptable. However, you can’t just roll into the office wearing your favorite pair of jeans and comfy tee; there’s a fine line between slouchy chic and just plain lazy. But I’m here to help! Here are five tips for making sure you still look work-appropriate in your jeans.

When it comes to the jeans themselves, a darker wash is always better for the office. Lighter washes tend to appear more casual and give off a certain hands-off vibe; a dark jean says you mean business. Whether you opt for a deep blue or black wash, go with a super-skinny jean for maximum sleekness.

The easiest way to instantly transform a pair of casual jeans into professional pants? Throw on a pair of heels. Opting for a sleek boot with a stacked heel is a great option for fall, but you can never go wrong with a classic pump in nude or black.

The blazer is one of the oldest “professional woman” staples in the book, and the same goes for wearing the jacket style with jeans. It’s also a great way to add color—while a blazer in black or navy blue is a standby, trying one in a feminine cream or even a more daring red or coral will jazz up your work look without making it too loud.
