Transitioning your work outfit to an evening look

We all have those occasions where we need to go out straight from work. This happens to me at least twice a week, but I really enjoy those days where I go out straight from the office. This can be for blogger events or just drinks after work with colleagues. Over the years, I have mastered some great tips for transitioning your look from smart office wear to an evening outfit, so read on to see how I like to change my look for night time.


If you know that you have a night out after work, it's best to plan the night before what you are going to wear to work in the morning, what shoes to wear and also what kind of handbag to take. This is the most important step, as you can ensure your outfit is suitable for both day and night and you can take suitable shoes. For work, I usually take a large Zara bag which fits pretty much everything in. However, if I know that I will be going out after work, I usually take a handbag that is suitable for evening wear. In this outfit, I've chosen my DKNY handbag along with this black and white patterned dress. I love wearing this dress to the office with a black blazer, as it looks so smart, but I think it also looks great in the evening.

Adjusting your outfit

As soon as it's 5pm you can start to think about getting ready! Rather than getting changed, I often just wear the same dress but change the look slightly. For example, with this dress I'm currently wearing, I usually style it with black tights for work. However, I changed into clear tights for my evening look. This adds a bit more sophistication to the look.

Make up

Last but definitely not least, you can easily touch up your make up in the bathroom before heading out after work. I usually add a bold lipstick and re-apply some concealer if needed. And you're good to go!

Do you have any tips for transitioning from your work look to an evening look?
