My company doesn’t do casual Friday either, but I don’t mind. You get used to it after a while. Some places prefer a more professional atmosphere all the time, and I can see a university being one of those places. I guess if you can get away with something slightly more casual, so long as it’s not breaking dress code, go for it.

Honestly, I have never worked anywhere that actually had casual Friday.

I’ve been out of college for six years and I’ve never had a job with casual friday.  My current job is business casual summers, which basically just means we don’t have to wear suits from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Honestly, I can’t imagine wearing jeans to work in an office setting. Eik! I’ve only worn jeans when I worked in food service.

My reaction to the title was “well, Casual Friday isn’t a given”, but then you said you worked at a university, and I’m like, wait, isn’t every day casual? I guess my university is a bit more relaxed. Dress pants can be super comfy, though, if it’s any consolation!

I can understand the surprise.  The offices I’ve worked in have all had casual Fridays.

I just started a new job at a university lab and I get to wear jeans every day now.  Yay!  Because I don’t like business attire.

We are allowed to wear jeans daily where I work (unless we have “visitiors”, but they tell us ahead of time) and as long as they’re in good shape wiith no holes… We just can’t wear sneakers until friday and the weekend.

I’d test it out first and see how other people dress on Fridays; in my office, gauchos would be frowned upon.  Some offices, wouldn’t care.  See how other girls dress and mirror them!

Every place I’ve ever worked has had casual Friday. I’d be so bummed without it! My husband is allowed to wear jeans to work every day and he works in an office job

we don’t have it, but the dress code is pretty casual to start with. I wear (nice) jeans pretty much every day.

I’ve never worked anywhere that does casual Fridays, and it doesn’t really bother me. For me one of the best things about coming home after work is being able to take off my business attire and put on my regular clothes; that’s when I feel like, “Yay, I can relax now!” It’s like symbolically stripping off the work day/week, lol.

We don’t have casual Fridays at my office either. I don’t think its a big deal. I used to work in retail and  I’m the opposite of you I hate khaki pants in fact I can’t stand khaki anything now and the day I stop working there I threw them all out.

 I like the fact that I don’t have to wear uniforms and I like that i can inject a bit of my stlye into my clothing even if its business wear. I think you should be careful because it will look bad if they have to pull you aside to speak to you about your clothing. I wouldn’t push it, unless you notice other people doing it without any issue.
