It’s nice to have casual Friday in the office. Dressing up all week can take a lot of time and effort, so when Friday rolls around, dressing in your casual gear can be a real treat. It all depends on where you work and what you do of course, but you should enjoy these casual Friday style tips!
Don’t Wear Anything Old
Just because it’s casual friday doesn’t mean you can go in wearing old clothes. Clothes that have holes in, or even just clothes that have obviously been well worn in should be left at home. You should still dress for work, regardless of what casual Friday’s policy is. There’s no such thing as being overdressed! Don’t wear anything you wouldn’t wear on a first date.
Why not use casual Friday as an opportunity to stand out? Wear something a little different to make a statement. You could wear a blazer over a casual t-shirt for instance, which would be just the right amount of casual for work. You can still wear a smart pair of shoes too, like Sperrys to get a smart casual look. It can be tempting to throw on your old t shirt and jeans, but you shouldn’t!
Show Your Personality
Casual dress at work is a good time to show off your personality. You could choose to wear your favourite colors, or a quote on a t-shirt. There are lots of different ways you can show what you’re into and the kind of person you are, so take advantage of it! Everybody has their own unique sense of style; it’s one of the great things about the human race! You might like to dress in classic clothes, while somebody else likes quirky, colorful clothes. Dress for you and show off who you are!
Darker clothes look smarter than lighter clothes, so even if you do plan on wearing a t-shirt and jeans, wear them in dark colors. They don’t need to be the same colors; doing that could mean your outfit looks too bland and ‘samey’. Just keep the color scheme quite dark to give off a casual yet authoritative vibe. It looks great every time!
Remember The Finer Details
The finer details in an outfit can make a huge difference to the overall look. They can also make great conversation pieces! For example, spending a little time picking out a clashing pair of socks can make all the difference. You might not think that people will notice, but they will. This can take a little practice, but once you’ve got the hang of it you’ll love playing around with different accessories and details!
Next casual Friday, you’ll be the smartest looking person in the whole office if you use these tips! Some people say that you should dress for the job you want rather than the job you have, so try it and see if it makes a difference. Leave any tips of yours in the comment box.
