‘Casual Friday’ Looks to Ease You Into Your New Work Week

After months of economic uncertainty, Canada is beginning to see provinces lift restrictions around business operations across the country.

This comes after Canadians put in efforts to flatten the curve of the coronavirus.

Some employees are happy to get back to the nine-to-five, and hit the wardrobe — while some people have seen elastic waistbands optional (lets be honest — goals).

They have been our new uniform!

Besides, there’s still a lot of work-from-home options we can strut.

But — it’s now time to get back to serious business for some, style-wise, at the office!

So, let us help you with some ideas to help ease back in to a professional style. 

If you’ve seen any online fashion style sources, you’ve probably come across bike shorts as a hot hit! 

You can find black, tie die, or neon — put them on!  Except the office — unless it’s more casual — we have some conservative looks for you to consider.

No question, a simple and beautiful linen white top (like this one from jj+Whiskey in Surrey, BC, 604-535-7335) will get you from day to night with pants, shorts, or a skirt — especially in the summer! Don’t worry if there are a few wrinkles, that’s the linen look!
