Many of us work in offices that allow wearing jeans on specified days. Skinny jeans can be a stylish and comfortable option for work, but it can be a challenge to style them to look professional. If your office allows jeans, you can never go wrong choosing jeans in a solid dark color. Just be sure to avoid distressed denim that’s too casual for the office, unless you work in a very creative field.

For the professional look, you could never go wrong in wearing all black. If your office is on the conservative side, class up your skinny jeans by pairing your skinny jeans with a structured blazer. And wear decent accessories such as pearl necklaces, flower pins, or gold jewelry to add some polish and balance to your more casual bottoms. Or, you may also throw on animal print coat and heels.

If you work in a creative field, you can also layer a printed coat or blazer over your plain top. Like Ella, you may wear a leather jacket on top of your striped blouse and white skinny jeans and wear a pair of boots or sandals. Similarly, light-colored skinny jeans and shiny, coated denim should be saved for after hours, if you want to look professional. This is a great way to let your co-workers know you don’t take yourself too seriously while still looking presentable.
