For all my favorite classic jeans, check out this post/review here.
Tips for wearing jeans to work [*dress codes will vary among workplaces/industries but this will be most applicable to business casual/smart casual/casual Friday dress codes]:
- Choose classic jean styles. Avoid jeans with rips or distressing and go with a classic jean [i.e skinny, straight leg, wide-leg crop]. Darker washes can be more formal, so if you have a more formal business casual dress code, I recommend sticking with black jeans. If you can wear white jeans, I recommend wearing them with neutrals to keep the look professional chic.
- Add a blazer or professional layering piece to elevate your denim. Because denim can fall on the casual side, you can dress them up by pairing them with a more professional piece.
- Opt for more formal footwear. Avoid casual shoes like sandals and sticking with formal shoes like pointed toe flats, slingbacks, heels and loafers.
- If your dress code allows sneakers, I recommend wearing a minimal sneaker and avoiding athletic tennis shoes for a more professional look.
