Two Uber-Chic Ways To Take Your Look From AM to PM
You know there are days when your mind is all about work… you sit at your desk, type away on your keyboard wondering whether life actually is only about earning for a living and paying those bills. And then to your surprise, you get that long-awaited text from the Tinder fella you swiped right at. What next? He’s taken the effort to invite you over for a fun gig in town. But just when you anticipate on saying yes, your heart sinks because you realise that you have to decline the offer, given you’re not actually dressed for the occasion.
Damn! That situation is something you don’t want to be in. Which is why it’s ok to be prepared for such days. While obviously, you can’t head to work looking like you’re in ‘all play no work’ mode, there are a few things you must tuck in your work drawer that can help you switch from boardroom zone to party-ready. Some of these are a pair of metallic danglers, a well-fitted blazer that can be thrown over the most basic outfit, a pair of heels perfect for the night, among other things.
Nonetheless, if you’re not one to stock up your work drawer, it’s a good idea to head home only to make a few changes to your ensemble. So here are two basic workwear looks that can be amped up for a party by adding or deleting an item from the look. This one’s a fun way to experiment with your clothes, and while I’ve given you just two options, there are a plenty you can dole out.
1. Switch the black heels for bling
Nothing says party better than a pair of metallic block heels. If you’ve worn a neutral-hued jumpsuit (here black), that’s teamed up with accessories perfect for work, just add a pair of silver block-heeled pumps to spruce up your outfit for a night out.

2. Add a shiny bomber
Wore a pencil skirt and blouse to work? Fret not! Layer your ensemble with a funky satin bomber jacket (so in right now) when you’re heading ou. That’s all you need and you’re good to go.
