So you’re lucky enough to work in an office that welcomes jeans. Awesome. You’re not sure, though, how to wear them without looking too casual (or worse—sloppy). Allow us, and the following 25 ladies, to show you how to pull off your favorite denim at your nine-to-five.
With a Pajama Top and Coordinating Accessories
Matching your shoes to your purse: not always cheesy.
With a High-Neck Blouse and Pointy-Toe Pumps
A strong case for hopping aboard the mom-jeans train.
With a Statement-Sleeve Top and Ballet Flats
Stack a few of your favorite delicate necklaces for good measure.
With a Kimono and Ankle Boots
Summery pieces can totally transition to fall with the right shoes.
With a Silky Blouse and Metallic Shoes
They don't have to be platform disco sandals, but a metallic pump, for instance, is practically a neutral (just cooler).
With a White Shirt and Statement Earrings
Let knockout jewelry take center stage.
With a Tweed Jacket and Two-Tone Shoes
How very Chanel of you.
With a Shell Top and Mules
Frayed stringies: We don't recommend. But cropped jeans of some kind: Your cute heels definitely will.
With a Printed Blouse and Loafers
…And crop flares, like a real '70s babe.
With a Velvet Jacket and Lace-Up Boots
We love the juxtaposition of the luxe velvet and the tough leather.
With a Cropped Jacket and Block Heels
FYI, cropped jackets make your legs look way longer.
With a Sweater and Statement Boots
When layering on top, try to keep your bottom half snug.
With a Pussy Bow Blouse and Patent Boots
Your new favorite power outfit.
With a White Button-Down and Structured Bag
OK, second favorite power outfit.
With a Half-Tucked Tee and Oversize Blazer
The darker the palette, the more refined the look (yes, even in a tee).
With Anything and Printed Stilettos
It doesn't matter what's beneath that trench—the leopard pumps say it all.
With a Ruffled Blouse and Lace-Up Heels
Two intricate pieces separated by...the least intricate. It just works.
With a Plaid Blazer and Pointy Heels
A modern take on the pantsuit.
With a Crisp White Shirt and Ankle Boots
If you need one of those self-imposed work uniforms, this should be it.
With a Boxy Button-Down and Sneakers
A nice little casual Friday option.
With a Trench Coat and Low Heels
Bonus points if your jacket is in a standout fabric.
With a Band-Collar Shirt and Blazer
Borrowed from the boys…in the best way possible.
With a Graphic Tee and Moto Jacket
Best for working in a creative office.
With a Turtleneck and Heeled Loafers
Florals for fall? Much more groundbreaking than spring, especially with a solid base.
With All Black
Hello, outfit we want to wear every single day.
