The first thing we thought when we saw Armani Exchange‘s spring/summer 2012 lookbook was, “Wow, we could wear a lot of this stuff to work.” The bright orange cropped jeans and khakis look certifiably professional (especially when paired with heels, chiffon tops, and slouchy blazers). But this collection isn’t all work and no play–there’s a few summer weekend looks we’d love to cop. Denim shorts paired with a crochet knit top and aviators? We’ll see you at the beach.

Allure magazine shares four tips for wearing denim in the office (or any formal situation) so you can perfect your indigo look.
1. Distinguish between weekend and work denim. Dark denim rinses are better for office.
2. Avoid stone washed, acid washed, or whiskered, and no low rise; the less flash, the better.
3. When wearing denim on denim, a fitted blazer compliments relaxed trousers or pair a voluminous jacket with skinny jeans.
4. Make sure your denim matches. Try indigo so that you can’t go wrong ; denim can be worn as a trench coat, blazer, top, boots etc.
