If you work somewhere that allows casual Fridays for the spring and summer months, you may be a little stuck. Anything that is built for the warm weather doesn’t always scream “work appropriate” and it can be difficult to find anything that you want to do a presentation in – especially to important people.
If you are looking for what to wear for Casual Fridays in the spring and summer months, look no further. We’ve collected some of the best ideas and pieces that you will wear over and over again, no matter the season.
A Fun Printed Shirt
Printed shirts tend to read a bit more casual, but they are still professional. You can wear a fun printed shirt with your normal clothes and still feel put together. Get something made out of a lightweight material or that has short sleeves so that you don’t get too warm.
For those mornings when it is still cold, you can throw on a blazer and look a bit more professional and then look more casual in the afternoons when most people don’t have presentations.
Stretch Pants – That Still Look Professional
The great thing about leggings is that you can wear them and be comfortable no matter where you sit. However, they don’t always look appropriate for work. Sure, you might be able to pull them off, but people will notice eventually.
Up until recently, stretch pants never really looked or felt that great. They were either too stiff and didn’t feel like stretch pants or they looked like something your grandmother would wear.
Fortunately, some designers have mastered the professional, fashionable stretch pant. It might seem strange at first, but you will quickly invest in many pairs to wear every day, not just casual Fridays.
Want to immediately make a look just a bit more professional? Consider adding some glasses. It’s true that glasses are the international sign of “geek” for so many people, but they are more than that. Studies have shown that people who wear glasses are taken more seriously and people perceive them as smarter.
If you don’t have a pair of glasses that make you feel confident, make sure to invest in some. If you don’t wear glasses for corrective vision, you can even get ones that just have glass in them!
Cropped pants are great for showing off shoes, but they can also make for fantastic business casual wear. They are a bit different than what you might wear during the week, but they are still put together.
Consider getting some cropped pants in a beautiful color or in a new silhouette to keep your fashion a bit different.
Don’t forget that you don’t have to look like everyone else at work. Show off your personal style.
