We received a tweet this week from one of our twitter friends that she almost missed her train trying to find an outfit that would look professional during the day and still fun for drinks at night. To help her and you out we are going to answer the question:
How do I go from the Office to Drinks in Style?
The easiest way to go from day to night is with a chic dress. During the day wear it with a cardigan and flats. When your ready to go out at night, swap your flats for your favorite pumps and lose the cardigan. We even found a chic clutch for you to accessorize with. Throw the clutch and heels in your tote for easy commuting. Then leave it under your desk or in your car when you head out for the evening. We threw in a beaded bracelet for your evening look, but you can probably wear that all day.

Our second look will work all day and all night. You will look polished and professional during the day and fun and stylish at night. Start with your basic black pants and add a deep navy silk blouse. Depending on how professional your office is, you can always add your black jacket too. Punch up your heels with zebra stripes across the rounded satin toe. And don’t forget your statement necklace and cocktail ring. This is the perfect time to pull them out. If they feel to glitzy during the day you can always layer them on before heading out for the evening.
