Dress Down Friday Style Guide

Dress down Friday, is it a good thing or a bad thing? Many of us relish the opportunity to communicate our own style and feel a little more comfortable one working day a week, whereas others find the rules still linked to dress code even on ‘dress down’ day a little more challenging.

Read on to discover how to dress appropriately on dress down Friday, no matter what rules are imposed…

  1. Mix up your style

While dress down Friday might seem like an opportunity to wear whatever you like, it often comes with it’s own hidden rules, and you know if you rocked up to the office in sweats you’d be told to go home again.

To get dress dow Friday just right, try mixing in a few key items from your personal style with paired down items. Think a bold shirt that you love with straight leg jeans, or your favorite leather jacket and t-shirt. If you want to go for more casual skinny jeans, try teaming with an untucked simple shirt.

  1. Think smart casual – not ‘casual casual’

This is particularly important to remember if you are experiencing your first ever dress down Friday in a new role. To avoid turning up ten times more casual than everyone else, take a ‘smart’ approach to your ‘casual’ look. Play it safe to start with, until you get a better idea of what everyone else is wearing and what is acceptable.

Try a skinny fit pair of trousers, a plain T and an open blazer with loafers for a relaxed yet smart look, or a pair of straight leg jeans rolled up once or twice, with a grey tweed blazer and white shirt.

  1. Add personality with accessories

Dress down Friday is a good opportunity to show off your own personal style a bit, but that can feel tricky if you still feel a little restrained. A watch is key, as well as a stylish bag. Try the Vanacci Watch in Midnight for a timepiece that will work well for work Monday-Friday.

Remember to have fun with your dress down Friday look – once you get into the swing of things it’s easy to create a smart/casual stylish look.
