What To Wear To: Casual Friday
June 5, 2008
For a generous handful of the working population, the arrival of Memorial Day signifies not only the start of summer, but also the beginning of casual Fridays, or for the truly lucky ones, half-day Fridays. But this could potentially become an easy style trap. Arrive in your flip-flops and teensy weensy bikini top peeking out from under your tee, and you just might erase all of the professional rapport you worked so hard to build up during the week. So what exactly is a girl to wear?
Show your lighter side with a pair of white cigarette jeans -oh so trendy, might we add – and a flirty, bohemian patterned top. To ground the look and keep it office-appropriate, throw on a structured school-boy blazer in dark midnight navy. Save the sandals for the beach and opt for comfy flats in a bold hue instead. As for accessories, keep it natural and low key with a wood cuff bracelet and delicate gold chain. Finally, a cream colored bag will extend the airy palette, and the combination of cream and white makes for an unexpected twist.
