How to dress from Work to Play

Every truly gathered woman knows the motto "work hard/play hard" and embodies that to some extent. Playing hard is about self-care, not partying recklessly and destroying your youthful glow.  We all need down time to enjoy the fruits of our labor. So when it's time for happy hour, a casual date, a social event, or other enjoyable after work function, how do we transition our outfits to save time, money and clothes? See our go to ideas on how to change work outfits from day to night.

To Do

 

  • Use accessories to elevate the style of your work basics. Adding bracelets, cocktail rings, dramatic earring and statement necklaces works wonders.
  • Use a fierce and dramatic shoe to increase the sexiness of your outfit without changing your hemline or lowering your collar.
  • Add a waist belt to loose dresses to give shape and chicness
  • Switch from a bulky tote to a chic clutch
  • Increase the drama of your make-up. Highlight your cheekbones, add mascara/liner, try a dark lipstick.
  • Don't forget your favorite perfume
  • Let your hair down or switch the part. 

 

Great Pieces to Build from

 

  • Use fitted pants rather than traditional slacks
  • Pay attention to fabric. It's easier to move from day to night with more luxurious fabrics  (silk, leather, satin, beading, etc)
  • Use colorful jackets and blazers rather than cardigans
  • Keep killer high heels in your car
  • Have a Fashion Emergency Kit in your car (read our post on this here)
