Casual Fridays: An Updated Spring Work Look

Remember the days when your outfits to school were of the utmost importance? As an adult, it’s a similar feeling when you’re headed to work, that is depending on your environment. Working in fashion for over a decade, I’ve learned that you want to make a good impression and look stylish, but not like you tried too hard. Not only does a killer outfit set the tone for your day, but it will give you a huge confidence boost that may help you overcome any nervous jitters if you’re starting a new position or giving a presentation.

My favorite day of the week (as I’m sure most of you can agree with me), is Friday! Not only does it conclude the end of the week but in some offices also allows a little leeway in how you can dress. Of course, depending on which field you work in and your own personal style, outfit combinations and what is appropriate for your workplace will differ here and there. However, work attire is major when it comes to the office – after all, it’s how you present yourself to your boss and coworkers. You want to put your best foot forward, look professional, chic and add a little bit of your own personality to it. Whether you’re the VP, an assistant, or even kick-starting your career as an intern, there are plenty of ideas to go around that will be sure to fit your persona. Scroll down to see my picks for a fresh Spring work outfit!

Corporate

If you’re about to step into the world of lawyers, investment banking, or business consulting, fret not – your wardrobe doesn’t have to be so serious – especially on Casual Fridays! This is where you can bring out your inner boss lady, and what better way to do that than with a chic pantsuit or button down and trousers combination? You’re establishing yourself as an independent businesswoman who can do anything she puts her mind to. Some essentials are a sleek pair of trousers, a tailored or fitted blazer, and comfortable pumps. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colors like red, and play with accessories to make your outfit pop (fun earrings and statement shoes are always a nice touch).


 

Fashion

If you’re like me and work in the crazy realm of fashion, then you’re lucky to be able to take some risks when it comes to dressing for work. Most offices in the fashion industry will appreciate a quirky, boundary pushing outfit – but you should still look classy and respectful. Overly exposed cleavage and daringly short hemlines should probably be avoided at all costs in general, but fashionistas can experiment mixed patterns, architectural pieces, tasteful denim, and fun proportions. For the first day of work, I love the idea of wearing a maxi dress with knee high boots and a tailored blazer. However, each company is different. In fashion, you can never go wrong with a sleek all-black look – so when in doubt, monochrome!


 

Creative

If you work in music, the arts, or any other creative field – then (almost) anything goes. This is where you can showcase your creative side and express your personality without many limits. The quirkier, the better! Midi skirts with sneakers, oversized chunky sweaters, baggy tees and boyfriend jeans, plus chic thick-rimmed glasses are right up your alley. Since you may even be your boss and probably don’t have to worry about a dress code, you can make your own rules, such as dressing like it’s Casual Fridays every day! However, treat any meetings or work events as the first day at the office – dress to impress and dial up the class, while still being you.


 

Casual

If you work in a very casual environment, say at a startup or family owned business – it’s still a great idea to dress yourself up and look professional on the daily, even on Friday (a.k.a don’t come into the office wearing leggings and a sweatshirt). A nice top, skinny jeans and sneakers or flats are usually a good way to go here, and depending on your mood, perhaps a dainty dress. And it doesn’t hurt to throw on a casual blazer in case you need to sneak into a meeting or meet other professionals!
