Making Jeans Work at Work: 2 Ways

I'm fortunate enough to work in an office with a pretty relaxed dress code. However, the people I work for wear more professional attire, so I don't feel comfortable dressing too casually around them. Also, as cheesy as it sounds, I'm a believer in "dress for the job you want, not the job you have."

Nevertheless, I don't think wearing jeans and looking professional are mutually exclusive. I love my denim, and I think there are ways to wear jeans and look office-appropriate at the same time. One of my favorite places to go for jeans is MODE. They have a huge selection of designer jeans at budget-friendly prices. They're my go-to for jeans, but they also have a variety of other clothing items and accessories.

For you local readers, you'll be happy to know that MODE is opening a pop-up shop on November 1st in Lee's Summit, Missouri, at Summit Fair. Be sure to check them out there or at their original Kansas City location in Corbin Park in Overland Park. If you're looking to make some extra money for the holidays, they're also hiring at both locations.

I found a great pair of boot-cut jeans (something you know I've been on the hunt for!) at MODE over the weekend. Here are two ways I plan to style these jeans for work.


{Look 1: Add Dressy Elements}


One way I like to dress up my jeans for work is by adding dressy elements, like bold jewelry and heels, to make them feel a little more formal. Rather than the usual weekend staple, a tee-shirt, instead I add a pretty printed blouse.

{Look 2: Add a Blazer}

To me a blazer adds instant polish to any look. It's always what I reach for when I want to add a more professional feel to any look.
