Here at ZipFit Denim, we’re constantly exchanging tips and tricks for styling denim in a professional setting. After all, making rock-solid recommendations is part of the job for our fabulous Fit Experts, who work tirelessly to deliver the perfect pair of jeans to every person who signs up for one of our famous fittings.
We already know that investing in properly-tailored pants pays dividends when it comes to comfort, confidence, and productivity in the workplace. But denim alone does not an outfit make. So how exactly do you build an outfit around the clean cuts and dark washes we suggest to our corporate clients?
The answer, of course, relies on the specifics of your office’s dress code (if it has one). Casual Friday at a law firm, for example, looks a little bit different than a client onsite for a young tech startup. Read on for a few of our favorite styling tips!
If your office is on the conservative side…
Pair a clean and simple dark wash pant like the Paige ‘Normandie’ Slim-Straight Jean in ‘Reggie’ with a crisp button-down, cognac leather oxfords, and a matching belt this Casual Friday. Top it off with a dark blue blazer, and you’re ready to comfortably and confidently seize the day and transition seamlessly into happy hour or date night.
A sleek cigarette leg like that on the AG ‘Prima’ Mid-Rise Jean in ‘Rhode Blue’ makes for a corporate-friendly getup as well. We recommend pairing with a luxe sleeveless silk shell (especially during summer!) and your favorite pair of on-trend backless loafers. And even though it’s warm outside, we suggest throwing on a chic structured blazer to complete the look and endure that notoriously unyielding office A/C.
If your office is more relaxed…
A classic cut with some well-placed fading, like the Citizens of Humanity ‘Gage’ Classic Straight Jean in ‘Redford,’ is perfect for more progressive offices like coworking spaces and dog-friendly workplaces, especially if your coworker’s four-legged friend is a shedder. Pair jeans like these with a polo and some clean canvas sneakers for a foolproof look that will take you from business to ballgame if the Cubs or Sox are in town.
A medium wash and a custom hem is the perfect way to inject your sense of style into a casual office look. A crop like the DL1961 ‘Coco’ Mid-Rise Curvy Ankle Skinny Jean in ‘Callahan’ OR “Stony” is the best opportunity to try out a raw hemline, which will look flawless paired with tan leather platform sandals and a breezy top that’ll look even better with an après-work Aperol Spritz.
The ways in which jeans can be styled are infinite, these are just a couple of our favorites for the workplace. Now that you know how to dress up your denim, all that remains is to book an appointment, either in our showroom or in your office!
