Sure, more than 50 percent of professional women enjoy wearing jeans to work sometimes. And we know that ever since Casual Friday went into effect, you've been mulling over ways to make the business suit less straight and narrow and jeans more wearable.
The good news is that blue jeans, a hot fashion trend, have been reinvented in so many ways that a business casual look can be pulled off as effortlessly as your basic black suit.
Denim for fall doesn't just mean sporting your favorite pair of jeans all season. Try other reworked denim options like the denim dress. We like these from Lotusgrace and Jessica Simpson.
Don't feel comfortable trekking into the office in your favorite jeans? A dark rinse denim purse like this hobo bag from BCBG Max Azria looks great with white and khaki to top off your laid back look.
These stunning denim shoes have all the attitude without the price: Steve Madden, Tory Burch and Manolo Blahnik.
Take a traditional staple like the trouser, make it denim and you have another versatile wardrobe piece for fashion forward women on the go.
