    Default Jeans in the office?

    Is it ok to wear jeans in the office?

    Personally, I love them and think they look very smart, but many offices still frown upon them and only allow jeans on casual Friday. Other Offices don't do casual Friday and its corporate wear all the way.

    With the exception of professions such as law where one must appear professional and neutral, or professions requiring a uniform, in general are jeans ok at work?

    I think it's fine. But I know many disagree!

    I don't think jeans are ok in office settings, apart from casual dress days.

    I work in the construction industry and most of our male project managers wear jeans and work polo but I think if one of us girls came in jeans we'd be told not to again. If it was my business I wouldn't care though, I love jeans!

    It depends entirely on the workplace.

    If the workplace doesn't require traditional business dress then I think they are fine and very versatile.

    It depends on how you wear jeans. Me in jeans in a office, no way. I can't dress up jeans to save my life. I look like I'm off to the shops.

    But some people can put jeans with nice shoes and a blouse and look super professional.

    My workplace though, it's fine. Currently wearing trackies and uggs at work!

    My job is part office work and part field work. We have to wear business attire out in the field and when we have clients visiting. At all other times, most of us dress casually and jeans are welcome any day of the week. I love it this way

    Depends on the workplace. In corporate offices, only on Fridays (if they do the casual friday approach). I know in our offices, we have so many partners, government officials etc coming and going it wouldn't be a good look to have people wearing jeans.

    But an office say in an industrial area attached to a workshop, yeah, I wouldn't see an issue

    I think it really depends on the workplace and your role. In my office I am the only person who doesn't wear jeans. DP almost always wears jeans and a shirt, he is in a creative profession but works in an office with engineers, so he is the only one in jeans.
