For the new and young professionals entering the corporate world, I just want to share something that will make your work week easy, fashionable speaking. It is okay to leave the office and head right on over to happy hour or another after-hours engagement if you follow just a few steps. You can make the necessary “transition” from daywear to nightwear without having to stop at home first, or worse, at the mall. We’ve got plenty of options but for the sake of time I’ve narrowed it down to the go-to look. For the everyday professional and fashionista, a pencil skirt is a staple piece in the wardrobe. Pair it with certain blouses or blazers to create a look that can be worn day and night. I find it to be the best option for the working girl that has several engagements to attend regularly. This look is both conservative and flattering. At the office you always want to make sure that you are appropriately dressed and not asking for too much attention to certain body parts. The length on this skirt is perfect, tends to fall right at the knee. The blazer is also important, it can be fashionable and fit in a modest manner around certain curves on the body. The top underneath can vary as long as you have one underneath… please. The pencil skirt works with flats, wedges or kitten heels. Add a few simple pieces of jewelry, such as stud earrings and a watch and you are ready for the office meeting at 8am. So when you get the memo that, “A few of us are meeting for dinner at 6″, you can be sure to respond, “count me in”. The pencil skirt then takes on a new identity. You can unbutton or remove the blazer and show off that colorful blouse and the form fitting skirt that shows how sexy and sophisticated you truly are. (As the weather cools off, try wearing a form fitting pea coat with this look.) Take off the flats that you wore in the office and change into a nice pair of 3 to 6 inch heels or wedges. Add some color and height to the outfit to create the “I’m ready to have fun look”. Those stud earrings can now be traded for hoops, chandeliers, or feather earrings. The length of the earrings will bring more attention to your facial features. Not exactly the look that you were going for in the office – but under the dim light at dinner, you’re goal is not to blend in. Touch up your make up and now you’re ready to take on the evening and all that it has in-store. Adding and subtracting pieces will make the difference. It’s simple mathematics!
