Admittedly, I take full advantage of the casual Friday office dress code at Who What Wear. As a fashion editor, I always have trend-forward pieces (like oversize hoop earrings) and up-and-coming designers (like I.Am.Gia) in the mix, but my outfits also rely on a heavy dose of the denim and standard basics that line my closet. My personal method for picking out a cool casual Friday outfit is to choose flattering high-waisted trousers or a pair of straight-leg jeans, then add an interesting top or accessory. That means anything from a puffy-sleeve sweater to a fun beret. Here, see and shop my favorite pieces.
