Office to Out Out: Shifting seamlessly from work to social
There is nothing glamorous about carrying a bag full of evening clothes on public transport and having to change for a night out in your office toilets. We say it’s time to put a stop to the hassle and start wearing dazzling day to night outfits instead. Here are our tips for shifting seamlessly from work to social.
Top it off
This is literally a top tip! Wearing a plain white tee or a long sleeve white top under a maxi or midi dress is a great way to make your look more office-suitable. When you’re ready to hit the town, simply take it off and make an easy shift into evening mode.
Crochet your way out of the office
Workwear should be smart, sensible and sensational! Yes, that’s right. Forget boring office outfits and push the boat out with a crochet detailed look. The extra detailing of a crochet bodycon dress could the little bit of extra chic you need to solve the problem of an office to social outfit for good!
Pattern it out
Sometimes hiding in plain sight is the number one option. Choosing dresses or tops with a bold pattern can help you to look fierce in the office and allows you to move seamlessly into the crowds of people ready to take on the night!
Choose the right LBD
A little black dress is a style icon, but it’s probably not something you would think about wearing to the office. Well, think again - choosing an interesting LBD is definitely the way to go this season. Look out for options with a loose-fit, long sleeve or some alternative detailing.
Opt for white
Sometimes a maxi dress feels a bit overkill for the office, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Pairing your favourite dress with a pair of white trainers instantly makes the whole look bridge the gap between workwear and an outfit that’s ready to work the dancefloor!
Tie over into the evening
This tip could not be simpler. Wear your favourite shirt (we recommend one with a cute pattern) and have it tucked into your work trousers or smart jeans when you’re in work mode. Then, when you’re ready to let it loose, untuck and tie it together. This simple change in detail will make your outfit ready to wear out-out.
Forget packing an evening outfit bag to take to the office or rushing to get ready at home - your workwear should be as smart and sensible as it is sexy! There’s no reason that you shouldn’t feel comfortable enough to move from the office to the evening venue without changing - just follow our tips for the know-how.
