Back to Basics: Casual Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

Did anyone else feel like this week was super long, even with the holiday – or is that just me?

Since it’s Friday, in most work places it’s “casual Friday” meaning that you can dress down your everyday work outfit. It’s unfortunate that there isn’t a dictionary defining “dress down” in a way we can all understand and as a result, people often misinterpret the phrase.

Well, it really depends on where you’re working and the industry itself. If you work in corporate, jeans are a definite no. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take part in the casual Friday. Check with your human resources department or one of your co-workers who’s been there longer to see what’s appropriate on casual Fridays. If you work in a creative industry, chances are that your dress code is much more liberal, but double-check just in case. The last thing you want is to be the talk of the office due to inappropriate work fashion.

Here’s my outfit of the day:

Today I’m working at the design company where the dress code is more liberal, so jeans are allowed. To still make it work appropriate, I went for a dark wash jean, and completed the casual outfit with a structured blazer and some jewelry.

The key to a good looking blazer is to make sure it’s fitted, but not too tight. The shape of this blazer curves inward at the waist and doesn’t cut off at the bottom, so it doesn’t give that boxy man shape you see in most blazers.

What are you wearing today?

Stay Maganda!<3
