Let’s face it. Most of us millennials don’t have the typical corporate office job anymore. Perhaps you’re a freelancer or work in an environment with a little bit of leeway in the traditional business casual attire, but in most instances full suits aren’t necessary in the office these days. I, myself, run my own social media business and the only times I ever dress up are for business lunches or seminars, and even then making a classy fashion statement tends to be more important than formality. That being said, I think (when styled properly), skinny jeans are perfectly acceptable in a professional setting.
Here are some ideas on how to style skinny jeans for the office:

It’s a common theme that what gives an outfit with skinny jeans a “professional” look is what you wear up top. Try styling dark washed jeans, such as our Dark Stretch Skinnies, with a patterned blouse and flowy collared trench jacket. Pair it with your favorite minimalist jewelry and close-toed black flats or heels to complete the look!

I absolutely love this look! It blends elements of casual and formal pieces for the perfect “I’ve got my life together but not trying too hard to be someone I’m not” office look. Start this look with our Etienne Marcel Skinny Jeans in black or navy blue. Pair them up top with a light-colored relaxed fit cotton top and a smart, modern cut blazer. Add some close toed heels with a little flair and your favorite handbag.

Bringing back school uniforms with an adult twist. I suggest starting with our Etienne Marcel Skinny Jeans in either light grey or white for this look. Find yourself a nice light blue, collared, button-up top along with a menswear style navy blazer. Tuck your collared top into your skinnies and pair with a leather belt and matching booties. Scrunch your blazer sleeves up for more of a casual look.

I adore this look because it’s professional, yet fun. Slip into our Etienne Marcel Skinny Jeans in white and pair it with a simple patterned blouse and colorful blazer for your “wow” factor. I suggest tucking in the blouse and using a simple belt for a little extra professionalism. Accessorize with minimalist jewelry and you’re good to go.

Before I start, I will admit I am biased because I am a sucker for any top or dress with cut out back details. That being said, I am obsessed with this T-Party cut out racerback top.
First of all, the overall cut of the top is incredibly flattering while remaining comfortable. A longer hem in the back and front offer perfect coverage and the high side-slits slim your physique. While I would wear this top anywhere, I find that it is the perfect pre/post workout companion on crisp Spring days. Paired with black workout leggings and a cute sports bra, you’ll be looking fresh and stylish when coming and going from your favorite yoga class. The strategic back cut outs will keep you cool and comfortable along with its fit and flare style.
I got this top in the light navy color and love the slightly distressed look of the color wash palette. Can’t wait to get it in burgundy! Get your T-Party cut out racerback top here!
We’ve all been pretty obsessed with this high-low waterfall vest since the moment it came in!
Right away we started throwing out ideas of different ways you can rock it, but I decided to go a step further & hunt down some inspiration photos on styling a waterfall vest. Here are 10 different ways to pull of this surprisingly versatile piece.
Perfect for spring and summer! Keep the look fresh with lightweight and light-colored monochromatic pieces under your waterfall vest. It’s also a good opportunity to breakout some statement flats.
A waterfall vest is a great way to additional texture to an outfit with printed pants! Pair with a simple neutral top, simple footwear and a classic bag to let your 2 statement pieces shine.
Waterfall vests just scream boho chic to me! Pair our waterfall vest with distressed denim, a v-neck tank, metallic tattoos & a messy bun for the perfect weekend look!
Light and Lacy
Ok, call me crazy but the style of this look could totally be called “Edgy Sunday Brunch” right?! I’m loving the balance of a sweet lacy top and the toughness of the chain necklace! Pair it with a black handbag and some strappy black sandals for a perfect look for brunch or casual Friday at the office.
Cue up some Queen B & slay in this sleek monochromatic look topped off with a waterfall vest for that “oh, I just threw this on and look AMAZING in it” look. Attitude is key to rocking this look so don’t hold anything back.
There is something so fun and glamorous about a feminine boho style. It’s what I imagine Lana Del Rey wearing around her house on the weekends. The key to this look, aside from the clothing, is the hair. It’s your chance to go big glam while you outfit stays casual and comfy.
Date Night Ready
The worst part about summer is that you’re limited when it comes to layering. Luckily our waterfall vest is the perfect way to cover up a bit and allow for peekaboo sexy, like a bare midriff, without being bulky or too warm!
