in the early 90's levis (yes, the iconic denim brand) started the concept of dressing casual for the office. at levis this made perfect sense & denim was an easily accepted . but for many corporate offices it meant khakis, button down shirts, no ties & the non-dress shoe.
as with most new concepts it took some time to get it right.
and, the denim industry has come a long way. luckily for each generation the fits are better, cooler, are refined enough for most offices and the washes...well that depends on your industry. but, since the 90's there are so many new industry's that hey, it's a new world.
the look above is a fave casual friday look for the modern office. the length of the skinny jeans gathered slightly at the ankle is great with heels & the frayed holes on the sweatshirt is edgy & cool. cindy kirk's pouch is the smaller version in black with cream contrast stitching. love.
mother denim's 'caught running sweatshirt' ($158 model wearing small), mother denim looker skinny jeans in tequila truth ($220 model wearing size 25), chanteuse beanie in marine (now $76) with the cindy kirk pouch in black ($356).
