    Depends on your job. If you're working at a local casual coffee shop, then yeah I don't see why jeans and a nice top or a work polo would be a bad thing.

    I wish ppl would wear jeans at my work. On Monday one lady rocked up in cargo shorts and a t shirt. Yes we don't all meet patients or clients but please.....

    My work is a mixed bunch. Some dress really professionally, others on jeans and shirts and then there are some that wear shorts and singlets.

    But I must say on weekends for overtime I do dress down and have on the odd occasion rocked up in trakkies. In my defence it was 4am on a Sunday morning in winter.

    As others have said, depends on the job.

    I assumed it related to a corporate environment, and therefore said no.

    Our office is one where you have to be dressed professionally at all times, and there are no casual Fridays. (Although there are days where people can dress casually - in which case jeans are fine.)

    We abolished casual Friday as too many people said that they felt they worked in a more casual way when they were dressed down, and they felt they achieved more when dressed professionally. I tend to agree with this. Because we would normally be in suits/ professional wear, I didn't feel like I was properly at work in casual clothes, and the atmosphere of the office felt more relaxed (and not in a good way).

    I think it comes down to what's normal for your workplace and industry, the type of job you do, and how client facing your role is.

    Definitely depends on the job.

    I work in an office, but it is a casual office, certainly not a hugely corporate environment. I generally wear jeans, or opaque tights with a skirt and boots. If I turned up in full office attire, people would ask me if I was going for a job interview!

    DH works for a major insurer, they have to wear corporate every day. As in suit and tie. Ladies in suits also. I don't think I would go to well in that kind of environment.

    Generally yes I like jeans in the office but obviously in good condition and depending on the office.

    It was fine in my office I always teemed them with a smart jacket, scarf, nice shoes. Who doesn't want to feel comfortable at work?

    Nah I'm not into it. As pp mentioned I think dressing casually generally lends itself to a more casual attitude to work.

    I've always worked in healthcare so definitely not 'corporate' but jeans wouldn't have made an appearance. The closest I would have cut it would have been a knee length dark denim skirt with a jumper and boots in winter.

    No, not in a corporate environment. But if you worked in an office for a trade then I think it would be fine.

    I've worked in a corporate workplace that had a generally smart casual dress code.
