9 to 5 to Happy Hour

9 to 5 to Happy Hour

While work may end at 5:00pm (okay 6:00 or even 7:30), the day doesn't end once out of the office... although we'll be the first to admit that our office-appropriate attire sometimes makes us wish it did end - even as chic as our corporate wear might be.

Too often, the more conservative cuts and demure colors of the corporate world don't transition to after-hours drinks or dates. What gave you confidence in the board room, doesn't necessarily give you confidence on the dance floor. So, for when we can't get home to change outfits, we turn to these tricks... 







Plan Ahead. For last-minute dates, we keep a pair of strappy sandals or heels under our desks to elevate our pencil skirts. We also try to bring our makeup to work for touch ups and tune ups! 

Work With What You Have. Unbutton a few extra buttons on that silk blouse, lose the blouse altogether if you're wearing a sleek suit, or throw on a shoulder-baring top with your wide-leg trousers

Integrate Your Personality. Add a bold shoe in unexpected color. Throw on a quirky tee that embodies your personality.
