Casual Friday at Work

By Saumya Shiohare @myriadmusings1
I was so beyond ecstatic when one of my readers requested me to do a series on office wear. Honestly, every minute put into the blog feels worth, when your readers show involvement by way of their inquisitiveness, requests and comments. It just makes all efforts count. 
So my first office-appropriate look of the three post series, is a look for casual Friday. Most offices allow business-casuals on Fridays, meaning those traditional suits can take a chill-pill and hang out for the weekend.  Now let me elaborate business-casuals : when they say business-casuals, they expect you to wear casuals and still maintain that professional dignity and adhere to the work-wear ethics. So wear dresses, casual skirts, skinny jeans, but by all means: refrain from showing too much skin. 
So I were to dress up for casual Fridays, I would wear a pair of jeans in a neutral color, white as in today's case. As long as the fitting is right and there is no muffin-top, it is okay to wear skinny jeans to work. I paired mine with a simple pink blouse, which is form-fitting with a simple neckline. The blazer helps in bringing that element of professionalism. A good-fitted blazer in a darker shade is a must in every work wardrobe. Mind you, good fitted basics is the key to dressing up right for a professional environment. So always invest in the basics. Personally,  I believe in a minimalist jewelry approach for work, as they tend to get distracting and also come in the way of moving around for work. Unless you are in the fashion industry, I would suggest keeping the jewelry limited to a simple neck chain, a bracelet, a watch or even a printed scarf. My shoes might not be the right pick for all professional settings,  but as long as they are closed toes, you should be good. The choice of bag is also up to you: as I needed a punch of color, I chose one in bright yellow.  
So have fun, don't shy from experimenting, but always keep in mind the environment you work in and you will never go wrong.
