Hi there! The Fourth of July holiday has concluded and some of us are trying to get settled back into the work week on a hump day! Crazy right? At least that means we only have two more work days left in the week. Today on the blog I want to share with you how you can choose the perfect outfit that works for the work slay as well as the after work scene. I was chatting it up with some blogger friends last night and we shared how we are usually slighted misunderstood because of our we show up at work. But we all know that the world is our runway so why not?!
Every lady needs a look that says Girl Boss and recognize it but then the ability to transition effortlessly into your flirty and let your hair down side after office hours. So I have a few style tips to try to assist you with this task.
Suit It Up!
I know you are like ughhhh I despise stuffy suits but not all suits are plain and basic. A killer suit can take you from day to night. Finding a suit that fits is key. You know I am an avid thrifter, so the thrift store is always my go to place for a nice, quality suit. A classic white or black suit, or even opt for one in bold color and style it your way! During the day wear a crisp button down with a statement necklace. At night ditch the blazer and let your neckpiece run the show! Toss the handbag for a clutch! Get rid of the basic pumps and throw on some heels with inches and compliment your day look with a little edginess for the night cap and you are ready for the after work sip and chat!
The LBD ( Little Black Dress)
Every woman has to have the little black dress collection. You can pull it off with anything combination and for any event! If you don’t own one, let me help you find one or again head to your local thrift store and get to it! It is a staple piece to transition from day to night.
For work, make your black dress appropriate for your work atmosphere. Doesn’t have to be fancy for work or the after scene. Make sure the dress compliments your body type or wear undergarments to make everything smooth and flattering. Match with heels to compliment your legs and body shape. Grab your work tote and boss it. Now, for the night look, add a blazer or scarf! Any colors will work! Some attention grabbing earrings and again a nice clutch or smaller handbag and work the scene!
Layer it Up!
When in doubt, layer! My favorite fashion thing to do is layer clothing pieces. It’s trendy yes, but I have been layering for years. Especially in the fall and winter because I dislike bulky jackets. So I make sure to layer enough to be both warm and cute. But even for the warmer weather, layering works. Now when I layering it’s not always the clothes. For work, add a belt or scarf to your look that will flatter your waistline. Dusters are at an all time high fashion piece right now. Wear with dresses, jeans, shorts, everything basically! For the night life, you can also layer without feeling stuffy. Layering necklaces work. Adding a cute cardigan to a dress or skirt and top! If you prepare ahead of time, your work look doesn’t even have to change. You can step out of the office and into a wine tasting with no changing at all!
So there you have it! Wasn’t that easy? You probably already have these looks in your closet. If not, get to thrifting! lol
