Even if you’re not conscious of it, clothing plays a big part in our lives. Every day we wake up and decide what outfit to wear. We base our decisions off of the weather, how we’re feeling that day, and what we plan on doing. For most of us, our jobs are a big influencer when it comes to what we choose to wear each day. Maybe you work in a casual office where jeans and a nice top are acceptable on an everyday basis. Or maybe you have to wear a suit or dress to work every day, complete with pearls and a modest neckline.
Whatever it may be, you probably can’t go right from the office to the bar to meet up with your friends without making a few changes. If you plan it right, making the switch from day to night can be as easy as one two three! By simply changing your shoes and earrings your outfit can look completely different. Switch out your purse for a clutch and swipe on a more daring lipstick and you’re ready to go! Need some inspiration? Check out my ideas below!
I like more of a monochrome look, so I went with black and white with a pop of pink from the purse. The gold and black onyx earrings and bracelet from AUrate provide just enough bling without being too flashy. I think the white pants are a nice addition to the outfit and break up all of the black. The blazer and top are both from H&M, which is a great place to shop for affordable work wear! I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do is wear heels to the office for 8 hours. Instead I went with these cute flats from Steve Madden.
To take this outfit from day to night I’d first start with removing the blazer. Switching your earrings from studs to a more dramatic pair can instantly change the whole feel of the outfit. AU rate has some beautiful statement earrings that would complete any outfit! What do you think? You could stick with the flats, but if you feel like being a little extra, now would be the time to throw on a pair of killer heels. Throw the essentials into a clutch, put on a red lip, and you’re now ready to meet up with the girls!
With a little planning, any work appropriate outfit can also be the perfect outfit to meet up with friends. There’s no need to stress about going home to change! Throw a few things in your car, make the change when you leave the office, and you’re all set! What do you think of my outfits? Let me know in the comments below!
