Casual Fridays

Black and White Outfit

The boom, produced what most would consider a Godsend, “Casual Friday!” Originally an American and Canadian trend, the fifth day of the work week provides a subtle sense of freedom for the everyday professional stylista. For a minor history lesson, Casual Friday dates back to 1947, where in the city of Honolulu employees were allowed to wear their signature “Aloha” shirt.

While Casual Friday can be fun and exciting, it is important to remember you are still going to work, so perhaps the mini-skirts, bermuda shorts and skin tight dresses would be best left in the closet. On a personal note,when I think of Casual Friday, jeans and a t-shirt, are my go to items. I would pair them with a chic blazer, so to maintain a minor business appeal. As many of us ladies love our pedicures, it’s quite unfortunate that on a regular basis we can not show them off, so on this day go for an open-toe heel! Lastly the bag! Now it’s not too often that we would break out the “Best of the Best” for an average day at work but by the time the clock strikes 5pm, Casual Friday has me in the mood for Happy Hour. Needless to say cat-eye shades are haute and accessories are a must! So, if you are privileged with the luxury of Casual Friday, Enjoy! If not, this is also the perfect look for a sunny first date!
