3.  The Latest Trends

We love that denim has expanded way beyond its humble beginnings, but you shouldn’t consider its latest incarnation your next pair of office jeans.   As cute and comfy as a pair of boyfriend jeans may feel on the weekend — they just don’t work in the workplace!  And obviously, the distressed look with over-the-top embellishments should never make it anywhere near your boss!  Colored jeans, however, are a fun way to break away from basic blue.  Stick with a dark shade (oxblood!) or the always-in black.

4.  The Waist

AK Bring Your Jeans to the Workplace with These 5 Pay Day Friendly Style Tips

Anne Klein Women’s Petite Herringbone Jacket, $99.50 from Amazon

Remember the low-rider jean?  We always felt on the verge of experiencing a wardrobe malfunction while wearing this style.  Thankfully that look is au-passé.  And a higher waist is here to stay!   If you haven’t already , get yourself a pair of high waist trouser jeans.  Similar to a classic work pant, yet finished in the comfort of denim.  This style could easily be your best option for office jeans!

5.  The Rest Of The Outfit

Now, to keep your outfit on par with what’s work appropriate you’ll need to find the right accoutrements.  A silky printed bow blouse and tailored blazer add structure to the everyday ease of jeans.  Or you could try a ladylike tweed jacket to lend a feminine twist.  Complete the look with an elegant flat or pointy toe pump.  And accessorize with an enamel cuff.  The morning meeting never looked so good!
