The term “business casual” means different things at each office. While employees in more laid-back professions such as architecture, advertising and publishing can typically get away with more casual attire, others in businesses such as finance, oil and gas and legal fields tend to be required to dress up. In general, Denver tends to be more casual than other cities but you still need to look polished and professional at work. If you are in the market for some new work clothes to kick off spring, look no further than one of the following boutiques.

Starlet
26 Broadway
Denver, CO 80203
(720) 389-6051
www.shopstarlet.com

While Starlet’s original store is located in the Highlands, the recently-opened shop in the Baker neighborhood is bigger and has more merchandise. Carrying cute, trendy clothes at reasonable prices, Starlet is a great place to start revamping any closet. While clothing is trendy, it does not skew toward Juniors, and there are several items that are appropriate for any office. With a helpful, friendly sales staff and a large selection of merchandise, you are sure to find a dress, blouse or pair of pants that you can wear to work with confidence.
