Dressing up from Desk to Dinner
It is another busy day packed with plans throughout the day, right from starting the day at the office with meetings and then moving on to coffee sessions and dinner outings. We barely get any time to plan different looks, forget totally dressing up. So today we decided to give something else a try. We catch onto trends faster than the wind, and then try them to decipher if they are really worth the effort. So here is one that has lately been making the rounds on all our Instagram feeds and needs a fair try. What we are trying to say is that you need to just make your pick for one outfit that will last you throughout the day, and suit what yourself with what makes you feel like a proper fashionista.
Day to night outfits have been a matter of convenience since the birth of fashion, but they have now evolved and are termed as 'desk to dinner' outfits with some tweaks in the stereotypical attires that we know of. There is a good chance that you are probably sometimes challenged to rush from a busy day at work to after-hours activities, such as cocktails, dinners, without a whole lot of time to change up your look and create a casual night out outfits. For those times when you find yourself needing to transition from work to play, we have created this laundry list of items that are in vogue right now and will help you ace your style. So here is how you can pull off a day to night outfit, without many transformations, with minimal effort, and yet own the looks while you are at it.
We begin with, classic White Pants. These are extremely essential for both work and dressy evenings. Style them with a formal blazer that will aid your during your official meetings during the day, and wear a dressy lace top within. When you are ready to head out after your work is done, all you have to do is remove your blazer to showcase the pretty top you have been hiding all day. Amp up the attire with stiletto heels and a chunky necklace.

Moving on, we have another tried and tested method that will ace your look. It is the Boiler Suit. In the fashion industry, these are treated as formal overalls, that can be worn in stylish ways, unlike the usual way. We can address them as the more formal version of jumpsuits. The best colors for the office ambiance would be black, brown, olive green and navy blue. The perfect ones that will last throughout the day would be usually cotton and polyester. Make your attire trendy by adding on a pearl necklace and a bunch of other bracelets. Complete the look by tying your hair in a firm bun, and sporting wedges shoes.
