Slay Your Work-to-Happy Hour Look

Is happy hour calling, but your outfit is saying no? We get it, there’s nothing better than clocking-out after a long shift and hitting the town to unwind and let loose. Only one dilemma— your ensemble is great for work but too drab for off-the-clock activities. Say no more, here are a few day-to-night, business-approved looks to have your ‘fit game as strong as your favorite drink!

Mix Prints & Add Color

Today’s office culture is all about finding the middle ground between professional and personal style. You can effortlessly jazz up any highbrow look by pairing contemporary staple pieces with lively patterns and prints. What traditionally is seen as a mismatch, the new workplace-approved combo is mixed prints. This look maintains a modest and poised appearance but adds a fresh twist. Another way to liven up your wardrobe is to swap lifeless tones with vibrant shades. This effortless technique turns any outfit from drab to fab! Opting for luscious hues such as pinks, oranges, and yellows can easily transition from boardroom to happy hour!

AM to PM Outerwear

You can never go wrong with a posh blazer. Browse through Forever 21’s endless supply of women’s casual blazers for an outfit that is both work-appropriate and function-ready! This workwear staple seamlessly takes your look from AM coffee to PM cocktail. A sports jacket or sport coat is versatile enough to make any ensemble seamlessly work into a variety of settings. Due to their looser and less-tailored fit, these layer-friendly dapper lounge overcoats are perfect for the office and off-work events. Piece them together with your favorite dress, pant, or skirt for a laid-back and sophisticated appearance.

Bright & Bold Accents

Boost your work wardrobe while still abiding by office dress code by incorporating trendy accent pieces! Accessorizing with brightly colored bags, heels, or jewelry adds depth to your base ensemble. This technique adds character to any getup making even the simplest look double-take worthy!

Dress to Impress

Look chic, feminine, and poised with trendy dresses and skirts. Think cosmopolitan and sophisticated with a flirtatious appeal when it comes to these fashionable garments. Rock a modish blazer dress for a slightly sexy yet polished appearance. As a rule of thumb, avoid deep cut necklines, layer sheer fabrics with a bunch-free bodysuit or cami, and wear tights or leggings underneath shorter lengths.

Set it Up

From on-the-clock to off-duty, struggling with work-appropriate and event-ready outfits can be a real hassle. If you’re looking for a quick fix, invest in nifty matching sets. These already-styled garbs will easily have you looking well put-together without even trying.
