18 Trendy Pieces Made For Casual Fridays

Ah, Fridays. Everyone's favorite day of the week. Not only is the weekend so close you can taste it, but depending on your place of work, it's also a day when you can ditch the stuffy office attire for something a bit more casual.

Of course, adhering to your company's specific dress code is important. But if you ask us, casual Fridays are the perfect time to get a little more experimental with your work outfit, whether it's dipping your toes into a trend you might not typically try, breaking out the denim, or sporting day-to-night pieces that eliminate the need to stop home and change. Even if it's as simple as adding a more colorful layer under your typical blazer, let the end of the workweek be an excuse to have a little fun with your outfits.

The picks ahead are made for doing just that. Click on for 18 more reasons to look forward to Friday.
