Have you ever thought about how to mix business with casual? Since it’s pretty much Casual Friday where I work on the daily, it helps that I can pull a look off like this at the office and take it straight to happy hour afterwards.
But, for those who have to stick to “uniform protocol” here’s my advice:
- Substitute the shorts with a pair of denim or khaki pants. (& if you’re able to wear shorts, try a pair of flat front khakis that are more work appropriate).
- Invest in a blazer. Blazers are great throw-on piece. It’ll keep you warm in the office and you can easily take it off and carry with you to the nearest bar/happy hour.
- Go graphic. Graphic t-shirts are trending right now, but for all the right reasons. I happen to be wearing a logo tee from the GAP.
- Trade in the dress shoes for a more dressier sneaker. It’s not casual Friday for nothing!
