Business Casual: Denim to work

Business Casual: Denim to work

Does your office require business-formal (no jeans) or business-casual? Or maybe uniform? Maybe just casual (*cough* Google *cough*)? My 8-5 allows a pretty lax dress code – just no ripped denim, spaghetti straps, etc (pretty standard).

Standing 5 feet tall, it can be very hard to find jeans that fit well (especially length-wise), as well as tops that don’t overpower my small frame and don’t hide my figure completely.

I like to splurge a bit on “work jeans”, made of higher quality denim so they look good longer and can withstand the washer. As we all know, designer denim can be especially tricky because they are sewn for taller girls and rarely come in petite sizes.

I feel I scored big time with these that I opted for this Monday morning –

Since they are the “crop” cut the inseam is [only] 25.5″. My inseam is 26″ for skinny jeans to fit me juuuust rightt. Anything shorter than this I am happy to find! The denim is very soft and the fit is tight all the right places, but not too tight (like, say, my Abercrombie & Fitch jeggings). They are very work-appropriate and I love them! Though they were on the pricier side, I jumped at purchasing these after I was wowed by the fact designer denim was sitting above my ankles and not dragging on the floor once properly on. 🙂
