How To: Dress For a Casual Workplace

Dressing for a casual workplace can often be tricky. How do you manage to look polished and professional without being overdressed or sticking out like a sore thumb? Wearing a business suit, when all of your other coworkers are dressed in jeans, can feel silly…but at the same time, how casual is too casual?  For those of you who work in a less formal office, here are some outfit ideas that are both casual but still put-together and work-appropriate.

1) Cardigans are a great casual alternative to blazers. A nice fitted cardigan can pull an entire look together, especially when paired with a nice blouse and some dark pants.

2) Dark jeans, dressed up with a nice blazer and some heels, can be a great option for a casual workplace.

3) Casual work offices are great for experimenting with bright colors. Wearing “classic” professional items (blazers, pencil skirts) in fun colors and playful patterns puts a more casual twist on the traditional items.
