Friday dressing allows you to express the lighter side of your personality at your workplace. It is the end of the working week, and the dressing down policy is followed at almost all offices. Even if Friday gives you liberty in your office dressing, there is a code that one needs to follow. Before you decide on your Friday outfit, read through the dress code policy of your office.

Let’s have a look at some do’s and don’t you need to keep in mind when deciding your Friday office ensemble:

  • Do wear unwrinkled and well-fitted clothes.
  • Don’t wear denim, sneakers, and flip-flops (unless your office policy permits denim and sneakers).
  • Do wear dress shirts.
  • Don’t wear t-shirts (if permitted at the workplace, go for a collared t-shirt).
  • Do wear a semiformal jacket or team your shirt or top with a cardigan or a sweater.
  • Don’t wear vibrant and flashy colors.
  • Do wear a belt and a watch (especially for men).
  • Don’t over-accessorize your outfit.
  • Do wear open-toe shoes (if policy permits) or loafers (suede or leather).
  • Don’t wear a deep-cut neck or revealing outfits.

Here are some outfit ideas for women and men’s casual office wear-

Cotton Trousers/Chinos – Dress down your last day of the week at work with Chinos or Cotton Trousers. Team it up with a bush shirt and cool suede loafers. If your office permits t-shirt, then opt for a collared one. For women, team up your cotton trouser or a cigarette pant with a well-fitted top or blouse and cover up with a shrug or a semiformal jacket.

Skirt – A pencil skirt is usually formal attire, but if clubbed with a trendy tank top, a v neck sweater, or a knitted blouse, it will give your regular skirt a new look. A khaki color A-line short skirt will also be a good option to team up with a white color stylish top and a suede jacket or a denim jacket (if permitted by the office). A mid-length pleated skirt with a stylish top or blouse teamed up with a corduroy jacket will give you that trendy look. Club your outfit with a nice pair of ballerina shoes for some comfort.

Cover-ups or Jackets: Ensure that you include a cover-up in your ensemble. It need not be your regular blazer, but a cardigan, sweater, or corduroy jacket will enhance your Friday office wear look. A shrug or a semi-formal cotton jacket will also fit in.

Coord sets: If you cannot decide on your Friday outfit, simply put on a co-ord set (coordinated set), they are currently trending high on the fashion index. Go for solid and dark colors for a sophisticated look.

Jumpsuits: Another good option for Friday dressing would be a jumpsuit for women. This outfit makes you look classy and can be worn to those office parties or get-togethers on Friday evenings straight after work. A jacket covering up your partywear jumpsuit teamed up with open-toe heels will give you that classy look at work.
