Think wide leg
The last 15 years have been dominated by the skinny jean, and do t get us wrong we are well and truly wedded to our tapered trousers. However, if you pick a wide leg jean, the visible difference will elevate them to a super smart casual alternative.
Pair with a great wedge, or killer heels for a sizzling summer look. Add a pair of smart flats for a boardroom worthy look too.
Pair with a dress
This works in your favour on two levels. Firstly it takes the formality out of a dress that may see to dressy paired with bare legs and heels. Secondly your jeans are practically hidden.

Don’t be afraid of a formal look
We all have a great piece of tailoring or two in our wardrobes, well perhaps pairing them with jeans is a great way to get more wear out of that blazer.
Just like the jeans take the formality out of a dress, jeans will give a blazer a casual edge. Giving of signals that you mean business, but you don’t take yourself too seriously.
Try denim top to toe
Yes, now you are fully on board with the idea of wearing jeans to work why not go the whole hog. We are HUGE fans of the jumpsuit here at PlusMinus, so why not choose one in a denim.
We are not talking dungarees, we want a more formal structure and shape to the jumpsuit so it’s not too casual. Grab a pair of sandals or heels and you are good for that budget meeting with Karen from finance.
