For most Singapore offices, the dress code for Fridays is usually casual – and many of us tend to take that as an indication that we're allowed to break free of the rules and let our professional style slide.
Unfortunately, that should not be the situation. You are still at work; your outfit will still register with your coworkers; and chances are, your bosses are still keeping an eye on you for that performance appraisal looming over the horizon. Then there's always the possibility that your presence will be required at an important meeting that's been scheduled at the eleventh hour – and you don't want to be caught wearing flip flops or sweatpants.
On the other hand, it's natural that as the work week draws to a close, the general vibe of the office loosens up and you just want to take a break from your regular uniform of restrictive suits and have fun.
To help you ladies work around that dilemma, we've pulled together four fantastic outfits that will make dressing down for Friday a breeze. These ensembles are comfortable yet chic, and exude an air of effortless elegance. Most importantly, they will earn you nods of approval from your peers and superiors alike.
