How to Wear Denim at Work

July 23, 2012 7:00 AM

If you’re not taking advantage of the fact that denim is really in right now, you’re nuts. It’s flattering and sexy and a little irreverent… and the only problem with it is that if you wear it the wrong way, you might look underdressed. And we know you’re afraid of looking too country. So, we scoured our favourite fashion sites to show you many examples of the right way to wear denim to the office. Styling tricks include pairing denim with super feminine counterparts – heels, pencil skirts, pink, leopard and red lipstick among them – buttoning up and more. Check out our favourite looks below…
