You're back from your Christmas vacation, and your colleagues sent you a sneaky invite to after-work drinks this Friday. But what do you wear?
A few sneaky cocktails are the perfect opportunity to catch up about the holiday break and the girls' new years resolutions. But if you're like us and spent the last few weeks in knitted festive sweaters and kept opening and closing your wardrobe, expecting a 'tres-chic' outfit to appear magically - don't worry, we've here to grant your wish.
We understand your priority is to look professional and comfortable during office hours but look stylish and cute after the clock strikes at 5 pm.
Here are our top picks for the best desk-to-drinks outfits.
Create a statement outfit with a glittery dress
A glittery dress, like the Pink Glittery Dita Dress, is a sure way to make a statement at after-work drinks. And despite claims that state otherwise, we believe that you can also wear it to work during the day. Tone down the 'wow' factor by pairing it with a denim jacket, some chunky white sneakers, and a casual tote bag for the office, and when it's time to head out, swap the sneakers for a cute pair of ankle boots and - voila - you're emulating French girl cool while sipping on a cocktail.
Emulate French girl style with a classy black top and dainty jewelry
If you choose one statement blouse for the season, the super classy Black Turia Blouse is the one. It's elegant, classic in design, and with a flattering V-neckline. And with the wrap design, and gorgeous ruffle detailing on the sleeves, it's the perfect choice to take from the office to the bar. Let the shirt steal all the attention and style it with black skinny jeans and dainty silver jewelry like the Silver Dory Ring And don't forget a jacket if it's chilly - we love this breasted trench coat in a dusty pink to keep us warm!
Make a statement in a structured black blazer and casual denim
Tailored to perfection - this Business savy Salla Blazer has effortless glam written all over it. Style it with a pair of black trousers for a more 'business casual look,' or if you're for a more modern twist, rock it with the White Bastian Jeans and a pair of converse. Mixing a casual and statement piece will create a tres chic aesthetic.
A mini skirt and turtleneck are a match made in after-work drinks heaven
A deliciously snuggly sweater, like our Purple Evan Sweater, paired with a biker style mini skirt, is the ultimate 'tres chic' look. Wear it with a pair of Doc Martens during the day, and add a pair of embellished ankle boots for instant glam. And don't forget to add a black coat for when the temperature drops in the afternoon. For even more fun - spice up your handbag with the Lemis Bag Strap that attaches to your purse.
