Today is Denim Day. It’s more than just a reason to dress down, it is an event in which people are encouraged to wear jeans (denim) in order to raise awareness of rape and sexual assault. Luckily, I have never been, nor know anyone who has been, a victim but it is a great way to show support and raise awareness.
Each year my employer recognizes Denim Day and allows us to wear jeans to work. I am an executive working in an office environment so “Snappy Casual” is the dress code I have adopted for days when I can wear a more relaxed look without sacrificing style and professionalism. My look of choice is jeans, heels and a blazer punctuated with wonderful accessories like a scarf and statement jewelry. If you are looking for a few ways to dress up denim here are a few examples.

I don’t want to make light of a serious issue so for more information on the history behind Denim Day check out this website.
