Office Style to Evening Wear: How to Nail the Day to Night Look

Office Style to Evening Wear: How to Nail the Day to Night Look

While getting dressed up for a night out is part of the fun, it can be pretty challenging to find the time during a busy work week. Getting a day to night outfit spot on means that with a few tweaks, you can turn your office day look into a glamourous or more casual look for an evening out.

But the day to night look is an almost mythical achievement. Finding the perfect balance between office wear and a night outfit is difficult. It's easy to go too far one way and be on a date night looking ready to give a presentation on overheads — or vice versa. Plus, with most of us only having half an hour to get ready, it’s challenging to find the perfect outfit before leaving the house.

We’ve put together some wardrobe essentials to help you nail the day to night look. We've carefully selected versatile pieces so that you can always have the perfect outfit ready for any occasion. We've also included some styling tips so you can easily switch up your outfit.
