Who said that life has to be all work and no play? We say work hard and play hard. Maybe you are meeting up with some friends after a day at the office or maybe you are grabbing dinner with your boo on the way home. Business casual does not always scream sexy. So, we have some tips on how to put together an outfit that you can transition from “work all day” to elevated and sexy for a night out.
Tip #1: Swap Your Outerwear-
It would be acceptable to wear a mini dress to most jobs as long as the midriff and shoulders are covered. Do not be afraid to wear a mini dress to work, just be sure to add a blazer so they know you mean business. Then, after work swap the blazer for a leather or denim jacket to dress the outfit down.
Tip #2- Zip It Up-
Sometimes all it takes to transform a look from day to night is to slightly amp up the sex appeal. The NW Zip It Baby Snatched Bodysuit can be zipped up to the neckline or zipped down to show off some cleavage. This bodysuit can be paired with a fitted trouser or midi skirt. At work keep it professional and when you are ready to hit the town zip it down and show some skin.
Tip #3: Bring the Beauty-
One of the best ways to take a look from day to night is by simply adding to your makeup look. Smoke out your shadow and add a bold lip. Imagine this: chinos and a button-down says ‘i’m here to talk business’. But chinos, a button-down with a smokey eye, red lip and a sexy pair of stilettos says ‘let’s party’.
Tip #4: Patterns, Texture, Color-
Your work wardrobe does not have to be restricted to black, white and khaki (does anyone actually wear khaki? Let me know). Dressing appropriately for work does not mean you have to wear boring clothes. Do not be afraid to embrace colors and patterns in your work wardrobe. Not only will you look more fashion-forward and stand-out, but you will also be able to wear your ‘work’ outfit outside of work.
