Smart Casual Friday

Thank God it’s Casual Friday (TGICF)!!!

Casual Fridays in the office can be a great way to relax. Most importantly it gives us that feeling that the weekend is around the corner. We can dress down in casual attires, however, we must emphasize – Please don’t take casual Fridays too casually.

Gone are those days when dress-down Friday was time for guys to rock ripped jeans and Graphic T-shirts with no clue as to other dressing styles to adopt or what outfit is appropriate or not.

Every place of employment has its own unique dress code – including Smart Casual Friday dress code that may or may not fit with what we wear as casual attire outside the workplace or on weekends. Today, we are here to lay down the rules for Dress-Down Friday – What to Wear and What Not To Wear.

Enjoy!

Please note: If you must wear a V-Neck or Simple/Plain Round T-shirt you should pair it with Blazer Jacket and Chinos/Jeans to give it a Smart Casual Look

4. NATIVE AFRICAN WEAR

You can wear simple native African attires to work on Fridays and you can pair the top with other casual trousers such as jeans. For foot wears to go with these types, you can choose loafers, moccasins, boat shoes, and all other shoes that are not dress shoes (no lace-ups). You can also wear nice leather sandals with your native attires.
