What Do You Wear to Work on Fridays?

I'm Asking: What Do You Wear to Work on Fridays?

Casual Friday is reinstituted at Dunder-Mifflin on last night's episode of The Office, now that Michael is back in charge. Angela hates it because she thinks everyone looks inappropriate, and is especially bent out of shape about Oscar's sandals. Michael's interpretation of casual Friday is a hoodie, t-shirt, and jeans, Pam and Phyllis show up in the same khaki pants and purple plaid shirt, Meredith rocks a skimpy tube dress (with no underwear), and Kelly shows off her street style in overalls, metallic boots, and a hat.

What's your typical work attire on Fridays?

Jeans - same as every day. So thrilled as I used to work in a huge corporation and wear business clothes. Now have moved to a start up and am super comf!

Jeans, a respectable shirt (my mood determines the level of fanciness), and my Crocs. I love Fridays...

We can wear jeans. They have to be "dress jeans," but they can't be "designer jeans." We still haven't figures out what the boss means by that. Most people wear chinos instead.

I wear jeans & a nice top.. today I wore flip flops. I do admin work for a lab so it's usually pretty casual anytime:)

I work in health care so it's whatever scrubs you choose to wear that day. At least there's no mandatory color and you can wear whatever scrubs you choose.

I'm part of these lucky people who can wear what they want to work. Which most of the time means "jeans and sneakers"!

I'll tell you one thing, I never pull a "Meredith".

Same thing I wear everyday! I can wear whatever I want to work (within reason of course)... today I have on flip flops, jeans, tank top and a sweater :]

My company is a very traditional suit-and-tie organization. Summer 'casual' is on the way soon, but all that means is polo shirts and open-toed shoes are allowed. Wooohooo! I luckily don't have to wear a suit every day, but that means even on a Friday I am wearing suit pants and a button-down shirt or nice sweater. All I can say is that it makes me appreciate my jeans and flip flops that much more at night and on weekends. :)

"Dressy Denim" - today I'm wearing my skinny jeans, super high heels and a dressy, low-cut tank top. I would have never gotten away with the top but the boss isn't here! :)

I'm not working right now, so this Friday, it's my pjs. But, normally, it's a suit like every other day. I work in a formal field in a formal city. I don't even own khakis, and jeans just... no.

Business casual, same as very other day. I did love Kelly's outfit only because the other girl said "I love your outfit, you look like JLo", lol. And Meredith's, "Kid, don't fall in love with me" line.

fortunately working in advertising, we can wear pretty much what we want whenever - so fridays are no different than usual weekdays.

Business casual, same as every other day of the week. During the summer though, our dress code is more lax.

Jeans, a pretty top, flats and that's it for me. :)

I work in retail... every day is polo and khakis. We actually had our "Dollar Jeans Friday" taken away by corporate because it violated dress code. The dollar you donated for the privilege of wearing jeans on Friday went into a pool to help out other employees who were in need. (House burned down, spouse passed away, illness, etc.) Way more important than dress code, if you ask me.

I'm a bio grad student, so pretty much every day is casual, although I try to look a little nicer on the days I have to teach (polo vs. t-shirt) and I have to remember no flip-flops in the lab.

Every day is casual for me as well. Today, I'm wearing a casual blue silk top, jeans, and black leather flats. Which is actually sort of dressed up for me. :rotfl:

I wear the same thing I wear every other day of the week: scrubs. If it's the Friday before a Packers game, we're allowed to wear a Packers shirt/jersey with our scrub pants (people around here are fairly serious Packer fans, so whatever).

Jeans, a nice top, and heels. Always heels. I find being too petite in the workplace doesn't allow me to be taken as seriously.

Being in the IT field, same as every other day. Polo, jeans or khakis ,and flats. I tried to get a trend of "business attire Fridays" going, just to try to have our day of dressing different like most offices do, so myself and a co-worker wore business suits and heels for a few Fridays in a row, but it didn't catch on. :)

Jeans and a fancy-ish top. Today I'm wearing jeans, heels, a seersucker shirt, and a khaki blazer.

Business casual. Same thing I wear every week. No jeans. We can wear khakis and a polo or T-shirt with the business logo on it if we want to instead of business casual. I just stick to the business casual.
