Gone are the days of plain black pants and stiff suits that suffocate your personality. Let's break free and embrace the wonders of denim! From classic cuts to smart pairings, we've got the lowdown on how to rock jeans while keeping your look professional.
STRAIGHT LEG JEANS
Our Echo jeans are a perfect pairing with a blazer or coat to keep your workplace attire professional.
Pair the look with boots or heels, and a cross-body bag always. Echo Loom State is a more neutral wash to bring a lighter pallet to your fit.
Elevating the wash of your jean and stepping away from the standard black jean, like our Dash Washed Chocolate Jean. They are a stylish and versatile option for casual and semi-formal outfits. They offer a unique alternative to traditional blue or black jeans and can be paired with a variety of colours and styles.
Brown jeans can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For a more formal look, pair them with a button-down shirt, a blazer, and dress shoes. For a casual outfit, opt for a T-shirt, a denim jacket, and sneakers.
JEANS & LAYERS
Layering with jeans allows you to adapt your look to different seasons and occasions for the office/work space. Jeans are a versatile wardrobe staple that can be easily paired with various layers to create stylish and functional outfits.
Start with a basic T-shirt as your base layer and add a collared shirt on top. This combination works well for a casual and effortless look. Get this look with our Dash Jeans Night Black and State Shirt.
Having plain coloured staples are essential pieces that form the foundation of a versatile and functional wardrobe. These tops can be easily mixed and matched with different bottoms and accessories to create a variety of outfits and make the perfect pieces for layering. Try our Nina Tops in White and Pale Taupe, pair them with a pair of high-rise jeans like our Echo Superlight Blue Jay's and top the layering with a knit and blazer.
This look doubles a day at the office into a dinner with friends at the end of the working day.
Vests can be a stylish and practical layering piece, adding depth and visual interest to your outfits. They can be worn over various tops to create different looks. Our Crew tip to layering vests like the Sam Vest is to choose a well-fitted shirt in a solid colour or a subtle pattern & leave the buttons or zipper of the vest undone for a relaxed and modern vibe. Seen here with our Donna Jeans in Black.
Stretch denim offers the best of both worlds: the classic look of denim with added comfort and flexibility. Whether you're on the go at work, constantly on the move, or sitting at a desk most of the day stretch denim can provide a comfortable and flattering option.
Stretch denim is known for its comfort as it offers a greater range of motion compared to rigid denim. The stretch fibres allow the fabric to conform and stretch with your body, providing a more comfortable fit throughout the day. Our Moxy Straight range offers straight-leg denim with stretch perks.
Unlocking the perfect workplace wardrobe is simple if you have the right pieces, it's important to strike a balance between professionalism and personal style to feel confident and comfortable in your workplace outfits.
