One of the most exciting things about heading into the winter months is that party season is just around the corner. While it’s great to get out there and spend time with your loved ones, it can seem like a pretty daunting task to look your best when there’s so much going on and so many places to be. So this season, why not save yourself some valuable seconds and perfect your work to evening look ahead of time? Follow these 5 simple steps, proposed by our friends and techigenie.com, and you’ll be ready to party in minutes.
Put your best foot forward
An easy way to take your look from day to night is switching up your footwear for a more formal style. Two of this season’s biggest trends, patent leather and metallic hues, are perfect for injecting a touch of glamour into any work outfit. Think patent ankle boots or metallic Mary Janes to freshen up your look in seconds. Heavily decorated designs were also spotted on the catwalks at Sonia Rykiel and Isabel Marant, so there really is no limit to how fancy you can go with your footwear this season. Take a look at Gucci’s women’s shoes for bold colors and eye-catching embellished heels.
Don’t forget the jewelry
The simplest way to update your daytime look is with a statement piece of jewelry. The key is to keep the rest of your outfit as simple as possible to let the jewelry do the talking. It was definitely bigger is better when it came to earrings on this year’s Fall/Winter 2018 catwalks, with Saint Laurent and Loewe taking the notion of statement pieces to a whole new level. Bauble-inspired designs and even headscarf adorned hoops were seen across catwalks earlier this year. You’re also in luck if necklaces are your thing as the chunky chainlink designs spotted at Balenciaga and Chloe are perfect for instantly transforming any look.
The brighter, the better
Switching your briefcase (or backpack) for this season’s must-have accessory will help your outfit pop without you having to worry about finding somewhere to change. Whether it’s a simple clutch or shoulder bag, keep it as vibrant as possible to ensure you add that all important oomph. Bright, block primary colors were all over catwalks, as well as iridescent glosses and bold animal prints. Again, the key is to keep the rest of your look simple to avoid unwanted color clashes.
Swap the top
If the idea of hitting a party without getting changed doesn’t suit you then the next best thing is to swap your work top for a more exciting option. Go for a high-waisted pencil skirt or trousers and then pop your favorite party top in your bag for later. A simple slip top in satin or silk is lightweight and can easily be changed into at the end of the day without too much fuss. Don’t forget to ensure your choice of bra works well underneath both garments.
