Casual Fridays is suppose to be easy. Slip on a pair of jeans and go. So why has casual Fridays become almost a literal term in the workplace? Why are so many women and men having problems hitting it on point. Its either your too casual or not exactly casual. I think Casual Fridays is another term for Dressy Causal, Casual Chic(which is a whole other topic).  Causal Fridays is an balance between Monday and Friday. Not Monday through Friday. Its simply Monday AND Friday combined.Casual Fridays were supposed to be a "break" a sense of relaxation from suits at the workplace daily. But the problem with Casual Fridays is that it was designed for men. Think about casual pants. I think of khakis and a polo. Unfortunately women don't have that benefit. Although we have more options its the problem with the endless options of jeans...what color,kind,wash,cut????? For women Casual Fridays dress code isn't exactly clear. In some cases Casual Fridays have come with a list of what to and not to wear. What started out to be something fun and simple has become stressful and complicated.Whats supposed to be Casual Fridays has transformed into Formal Fridays(which is more of an Monday AND Friday look).By stating Formal instead of Casual makes the "unwritten rules" a lot clearer. In todays show we're going to discuss some of the rules and what to wear instead of what not to wear in the workplace on Casual(or in some cases Formal) Fridays.
