With so little time available we need to figure out how you can dress for work when there are drink plans ahead. More importantly looking boring is no longer acceptable.
For those of us who have a penchant for fashion; getting ready for work can be emotionally draining. You are coupled with lots of “what if” questions along with the quest of wearing something that is not labelled as “average”. It is therefore not surprising that doing this five times a week can be a very tiresome exercise, often leading you to turn to your trusted tailored trousers and blazer with a few glitzy accessories to liven the look up ready for town.
It is now time to spruce up your day/evening wear and say goodbye to dressing like a secretary every week behind you and we will show you how.
We have the definitive guide that will take you from the office to happy hour effortlessly. Let us show you the key to mastering the balance between formal business attire and sassy evening wear.

If you are feeling daring choose a new lipstick, the key is in the detail.
