Jeans have become a staple in our wardrobe. Whenever we’re unsure of what to wear, a good pair of jeans is always the answer. However…we do use them a lot more than we should, forgoing some better fashion choices for our old time favourite. We want to challenge you to avoid wearing jeans for a full work week, by exploring your wardrobe, buying a few key pieces, and creating more innovative smart-casual looks! We show you how…
Wide-legged trousers are a big yes. Pair them with a classic shirt with feminine details like a pussy bow or flared sleeves. Add stilettos for an updated work look.
Try out a matching suit and be right on trend. This pretty pink power suit from Mr Price will have you feeling sophisticated and chic.
We’re halfway through! Keep your jeans in the closet and go for an effortless look with this knit-knot style dress from Woolworths. The textured ankle boots with vents are also perfect for in-between weather.
This striped jumpsuit from Poetry is a no brainer when it comes to easy elegance, plus it’s a great way to avoid wearing those jeans! Layer with a classic denim jacket (see, we’re on your side) and add a pair of block heels to keep you going all day.
Everyone looks forward to Friday! Go casual by avoiding your jeans with a colour t-shirt and a high waist pleated skirt. Add some edge with a pair of sneakers and you will start your weekend off right.
