Paralegal Career Dressing: How to Sneak Denim to Work

Paralegal Career Dressing: How to Sneak Denim to Work

Some of my paralegal buddies are not allowed to wear denim in any way, shape, or form to work. Not even on moving day.

But I’ve had very dark denim mistaken for other fabrics, or even suits. We can wear jeans to the office, but one thing I’ve realized from taking pictures of my work wear is that none of my jeans currently fit well. So I went for a dark denim pencil skirt last Friday.

Pencil skirt (Marshalls); Shirt (thrifted); Freshwater pearls (Christmas gift from a bestie); Tights (Walmart); Boots (Rack Room BOGO a long time ago)
The reality is that I’m mostly wrinkled 😛

Have you ever gotten away with denim in a no-denim office?

  1. Yes! I have the cutest denim swing jacket and I get tons of compliments on it and no one has ever even mentioned that it is denim!

    Great outfit, Lynne!


  2. Sharon, thanks! I'd love to see a pic of you rockin' that swing jacket.

    Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings if you don't send me a pic. I keep getting nice emails from peeps telling me about stuff they thrifted or tried b/c of my style stuff, but everyone says "NO pics!" It's even worse when I wave my camera around at work 😛
