Our entire elementary has earned a jeans day and, while I’m always excited to wear my casual clothing, the students can sometimes be a bit much on these “reward days.” But, for me, it’s a definite treat from the big guys!
To start with the teacher’s look, it’s important to never wear ripped denim at work. To be honest you really shouldn’t be wearing ripped denim if you’re past college-age, but that’s for another post. Colored denim is okay as long as it’s not overly faded.
I truly believe you can dress up any item of clothing (except maybe sweats?!) so the goal of jeans day at work is to look “dressed up” in denim. Accessorize with some “night out” jewelry, keep makeup seemingly minimal (no crazy eye shadow colors or nails), and do your hair up right (no unwashed ponytails and other nasty hair). Because your pants are casual, everything else has to be cleaned up. All of those pieces will fit together for an appropriate work jeans day.
