From Corporate to Cocktails in 2 simple looks
A chic guide to dressing for after work drinks
It has been a longstanding tradition to meet up with the girls on a Friday afternoon for cocktail hour. Whether it be to channel our inner sex and the city vibes or impress the new office hunk, we’re often spending a good proportion of our days thinking about our Friday outfit to take us from Corporate to Cocktails.
And if you’re anything like me - dressing for after work drinks can often put me into an emotional mess. After what seems like a lifetime of outfit changes I normally end up in a heap on a mountain of clothes on my bedroom floor, wailing about having nothing to wear.
Lucky for you, we’ve found the perfect outfits that will take you from work to after-work drinks:
1. Keep it cool and casual with a block colour Jumpsuit or Playsuit
The Jumpsuit/Playsuit trend is not just reserved for Camilla-wearing, pool-partying weekends with the girls.
It’s a wardrobe staple that can take you from the office to cocktail hour with just a few of the right edgy touches.
Go bold and bright when playing with colour on a simple outfit.
These pumps are sure to stand out.
Use a scarf to tie around your head in a retro-chic style that will turn heads.
Finish the look off with a glam clutch or ornamental belt.
2. Embrace Summer with a Colour Block Dress
Achieving a business chic look does not always mean black dress, black blazer, black pumps. Try mixing it up this summer by wearing a brightly coloured block dress.
For corporate, throw on a simple black blazer to get you through the grind.
Embrace the warm weather vibes and put on some open toe sandals.
