Holiday work parties are fast approaching, which means you may find yourself rushing from the office to the venue with little or no time to change. If you’re stuck and can’t figure out how to transition from your work wardrobe to an after-five outfit, here are a few helpful tips as to how you can glam up your office style for evening.
Select a little black dress and have it ready to go – Be sure to choose one that is appropriate to wear at work, paired with a cardigan or blazer, and can be worn alone when heading to the after-work party.
Keep a change of shoes under your desk – Plain old pumps are fine for the office, but you may want to dress up your shoe choice at night. Keep a spare pair of evening-appropriate footwear at the ready so you can swap them out on the way to your evening event.
Keep a set of after-five accessories – Along with your little black dress, keep a set of earrings and evening accessories in a handy clutch. You can keep them inside your work bag, and take the clutch straight to your event.
Add some shimmer to your makeup – The holidays are a great time to add some sparkle, so remember to bump up your look with some shimmer. Your favourite blush and glittery eye shadow are two easy ways to easily add sparkle to your overall look.
Choose your clothing and accessories according to your style – Be it playful or traditional, sophisticated or out-of-the-ordinary, remember to be you. Dress stylishly yet comfortably, so you can allow yourself to let loose and enjoy yourself responsibly. Just remember, it’s a work party!
