With the festive season and end of the year upon us, event invitations are here, there and everywhere! You’ll probably have a couple of post-work events during the week – whether you’re out with colleagues or catching up with old friends over drinks, dance or dinner, it means you’ll be heading out straight from the office, leaving you with the age-old question of what to wear.
Deciding what to wear to the office when you know you have a night out ahead of you is never an easy task. You want to make sure you’re looking smart and professional while at work, but equally, want to be able to let your hair down in the evening. Never fear – the Gaggler is here.
Follow these simple styling tips to help you put an outfit together fit for the office and a night on the town:
1. Layer your outfit. It’s the easiest way to transform your daytime look into one for night. Wear slinky tops under your work shirt, or cardigans and coats over dresses, so you can peel off layers for a different look easily.
2. Wear heels. It’s the footwear for all occasions. Perfect for a day filled with meetings followed by an evening out to a posh venue.
3. Accessorize. Add a few pieces of bling as you’re leaving the office to add some extra dazzle to your outfit.
