Flannel and Dark Denim + Business Casual Attire

business casual attire, business casual, business casual female

Flannel can be business casual attire when paired with a sharp fitted blazer, a long beaded necklace, and classic black pointy toe heels.

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ and starting to show my baby bump. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

How to make your fall flannel work as business casual attire

If you’re blessed to have a casual Friday at your job where you can wear business casual attire, pull out your camp shirts and try this look. I love pairing my flannel with a matching colored long beaded necklace. Two or three strands in varying lengths tucked behind the collar look great. Keep it sleek by wearing a fitted blazer. Quarter sleeves flatter anyone and allow you to let your flannel peek out some more.

Lastly, keep your denim fitted and dark and avoid any distressing ( holes, rips etc…). Keep it professional by finishing off the look with a classic pointy toe heel.

Where you can get items similar to what I’m wearing

Here are some blue and white flannel top options:


And some black pointy toe shoe options:

My friend made this necklace. Simple long beaded necklaces are so hard to find and so easy to make. Here’s an 18 inch one if you want a shorter option.

And a high rise dark denim skinny jean that would look great cuffed.

I love quarter sleeve fitted blazers. Here’s a great option. 

If you like the look of cobalt blue with my bright coral lip, this is the exact shade I’m wearing.
