Create28 / Denim for Work

Friends, do you wear denim everywhere? You know like out and about, parties, work, church, date nights…the whole gamete? Denim is so versatile and depending on what you do with it it can cross the seasons and venues and still be appropriate. Choosing a few good denim {or chambray} staples will take your wardrobe lots of places {Oh, the places you’ll go! We love you, Dr. Seuss!}

I love this denim shirt that I purchased at The Limited several seasons ago! It’s the perfect weight and texture. It’s also soft which is a weird thing to say about denim but it’s true. It has so many options and goes with probably everything I own.

Pairing it with a black pencil skirt and pearls is something I adore. Polished and professional with ease, friends. Plus it is simple and structured. If it’s too cold for a skirt, slip on black pants and it’s another polished look, straight out of classic.

Ladies, you know the rule of three for style, right? It’s a top + bottom + a completer piece. For this look, my completer piece is a statement necklace. Not complicated but still put-together, structured and polished.

Since I love classic style, I try to create looks fit with my go-to comfort and words: structured, simple, put-together, polished and professional. What words define your style? Easy casual, boho, chic, modern, etc. Defining your words and style is a step in building the wardrobe you love and will wear.

I went back into the archives to find some other other looks with denim for work. Some offices are more casual so some of my other looks might be just the right inspiration for that environment.

These are previous looks that I’ve featured on the blog. For the most part and depending on your work environment, these looks would be appropriate. I have worn these to work in the past.

Hope your day is STYLISH and BEAUTIFUL!

    I love the way you've made this totally work appropriate with classic pieces! You look fabulous!
  • Love the simplicity of this look but the extra interest your "completer" piece adds. This is a perfect look for these warmer Texas winter days!
    • I totally agree with you, Shelly about what works for the warmer Texas winter. What's up with our spring/summer in February?
  • If I worked in an office I would copy every single look of yours. Love this one!
  • I can do this one!! Yay! Going to try it out next week. Wore a blouse tucked into a skirt today to work and felt put-together. Pinning and will do this very soon. Thanks for the inspiration.
