Casual Fridays often call for a more relaxed approach to dressing for the office, and we can always count on a denim jacket to dress our look down without looking sloppy and unfinished. To nail your look, seek out designs in mid or dark washes, as they tend to look more appropriate for the office. Keep the rest of your look polished and refrain from using any other piece that is casual as well. Do this, and you’ve got yourself a winning Casual Friday look.
