For those of us not lucky enough to work in an office with a casual dress code, getting ready in the morning can be quite the formal affair. Between making sure you have enough clothes back from the dry cleaner’s and trying to come up with an outfit that’s comfortable and shows off your individual style—getting dressed can be a pain.
That’s why, when casual Friday rolls around, cubicle dwellers the country over let out a sigh of relief and reach for their trusty jeans. Of course, even if your office allows denim once a week, you still have to look sharp (especially if you’re trying to impress clients or snag that promotion).
So, we’ve put together some looks (for ladies and gents) that allow you to look put-together and stylish, without sacrificing the comfort of casual Fridays. Then, we’ll show you how to find the perfect pair of jeans for you, plusgive you a chance to win them, courtesy of True Fit!
For the Ladies
Pump up your regular denim routine by pulling on a pair of funky printed jeans, like these Joe’s. To keep the rest of your look simple, pair with nude or neutral chunky wedges, a billowy white tank, and a slouchy sweater.
For a classic look, start with your trusty, go-with-anything dark skinny jeans and a pair of classic black pumps. Top them off with a cream tie-blouse under a formal vest in the same hue, letting the tie from the shirt peek out. Sophisticated, simple, and totally put-together.
Black skinny cigarette jeans lend way to a fabulously French, and totally office-appropriate, aesthetic. Pair them with menswear-chic brogues, a nautical striped shirt, and very simple accessories.
Especially perfect for spring and summer, pair two bright, unexpected colors together for a happy-go-lucky, modern look. Add a neutral colored blazer (try cream or white—not black) to break up all the color.

For the Gents
(Yes, guys, we’ve got something for you, too!)
If you’re into color, try a bright flannel shirt, balanced out with medium-wash jeans. A neutral-colored cardigan over the shirt will keep the whole look work-appropriate.
Pair dark-wash jeans with a navy and white checkered button down. Top it off with a navy and white striped pullover to add to the casual feel of the outfit.
