How to Dress for a Casual Office

We’ve shown you how to dress for a conservative office and how to dress for a creative environment in our “How To Dress For” series. Today we are tackling the casual office. While at first blush it might seem easier to dress for an office without a dress code it can be deceptively difficult. Without clear guidelines on what is appropriate things can easily get out of hand.

Many people love to wear jeans in more casual settings. The trick to looking polished is sticking to darker washes and more tailored styles like our skinny jeans. Pairing it with pumps is a great way to go but for the adventurous tucking them into riding boots is a great style statement for fall. An easy cotton top with embellishment is always appropriate especially when combined with a cozy sweater. Have fun with your accessories. We love a great skinny belt.
