Nowa­days we all have to keep up with busy sched­ules and con­se­quently, so do our wardrobes! Here are some ideas on how to take your work wear wardrobe and make that in­stant tran­si­tion from se­ri­ous pro­fes­sional to se­ri­ously glamorous!

From cor­po­rate to cock­tail chic!

Dis­miss the myth that LBD’s are only for night outs. You can al­ways wear a ba­sic black dress to work with­out look­ing over­dressed. Pair it down with a tai­lored blazer or be a lit­tle creative and wear a blouse un­derneath it. Both op­tions make the lit­tle black dress seem more re­laxed and of­fice friendly.

Af­ter of­fice hours, ditch the blazer / blouse to re­veal the right amount of skin. Go on and show­case your per­sonal style by ac­ces­soriz­ing. Go for key pieces rather than go­ing over­board. A state­ment necklace or a fash­ion­able belt could work. What you put on is equally as im­por­tant as what you take off. Add sexy heels and voila, in­stant trans­for­ma­tion! Re­mem­ber, the idea here is to look ap­pro­pri­ate but amaz­ing as well!

QUICK TIPS:

1 Know that com­fort is key. Since you won’t be able to go home and change, be prac­ti­cal. Opt for ballet flats or loafers for day and save the sky-high heels for the night! 2 Swap your big tote for an evening clutch. Be pre­pared and throw one into your larger day bag. 3 There’s no need to book an ap­point­ment at the par­lor. Just add a quick coat of gloss or a bright lip­stick. Put on some eye­liner, an­other coat of mas­cara and let your hair down! It's more so­phis­ti­cated if it's not too pre­cise. 4 The right ac­ces­sories can eas­ily take your out­fit from day to night. Pearls and min­i­mal ac­ces­sories are ap­pro­pri­ate for of­fice wear. Go for in­stant glam by adding a state­ment ac­ces­sory like a bold cock­tail ring, a fun neck­piece or dan­gling ear­rings. Just not all to­gether. 5 Scent is im­por­tant. Go from a fresh day scent to some­thing bolder at night. It’s the eas­i­est way to change your mood! 6 Al­ways be ready! Keep a pa­per bag of key pieces un­der your desk or in your car for easy and ef­fec­tive wardrobe emer­gen­cies or changes!
