Defining Casual Friday With Style

 As if managing office politics is not enough now if we want to be considered quote unquote promoteable we also have to manage our office style. One of the trickiest aspects of that style to manage is Casual Friday. This is a day where we get to dress down for comfort but must still portray a stylish facade. Depending on the rules of your office Casual Friday typically means you are given a green light to don your jeans or khakis. There are still a few simple rules to follow to ensure that you do not cross the dreaded fashion line. When choosing jeans, go for a dark wash they are casual enough for Casual Friday but still professional enough to be seen in in an office setting. Choose jeans that have not tears or distress marks save those for when you kick it up with your girls. The office is no place for worn jeans. If you choose khakis for your Casual Friday look the key to pulling those off with style is for them to be pressed and crisp. In order to make sure that you are not too far to the casual side choose a top with a collar. A crisp dress shirt with a flat shoe makes a great Casual Friday combination. You can also choose a fitted blazer in a casual fabric as a creative alternative to the fitted dress shirt.

Casual Friday is a gift, so use it wisely. Play by the rules and rock it all the way to your next promotion.
