After five whole days of working 9 to 5, you’re likely to be more than ready to let your hair down and join your friends for a few Friday night knock-offs. Most of us don’t have time to rush home, re-do our make-up and throw on some fresh clothes, so here are some tips to help you pick an outfit that’s suitable for both work and play.
Pants are always a good idea
A well-fitted pair of pants has the potential to be the most versatile item in your wardrobe. There are so many options to choose from, and whether you pick a culotte or more fitted style, you’re guaranteed to feel classy and comfortable all day long. Team your pants with heels and a plain top such as a singlet or shirt.
When in doubt, go for a pussy bow shirt
Never underestimate the power of the pussy bow. These shirts are feminie, stylish and can be worn a number of ways, which makes them a good option to spruce up a lacklustre office outfit.
Lipstick is key
There’s nothing worse than sporting over-done make up at work. Not only is it a pain to maintain throughout the day, looking like a clown is also unlikely to please your boss. Opt for natural foundation and a dash of mascara, and vamp up your look with your favourite power lippy.
Heels or flats?
We know from every model-off-duty that flats are completely appropriate for both evening and daytime wear, but if you’re looking for some extra height, a pair of stilettos never goes astray.
Picking the perfect dress
If trying to match the shoes with the pants with the top is all too much effort for a Friday, a dress might be your saviour. A monochrome piece is a safe option in the office, and all you need to do when heading out is pop on a pair of bold earrings. If your workplace allows for a more casual Friday look, a loose fitting patterned dress can easily be paired with boots.
Be bold with your blazer
A buttoned up blazer without the shirt underneath will instantly make your office attire look more glamorous. The plunging neckline teamed with cigarette pants and stilettos is an irresistible combo that will have all eyes on you as you head into the bar. If you’re looking to add some colour to your corporate attire, wearing a bright blazer is an easy way to do so.
