Ready, Set, Date Night!

Fall has arrived, which means goodbye summer Fridays, hello longer work days. Busier work schedules means less time to think about your evening outfit, and even less time to change your whole look before your after-work plans. So, whether you have a date night set with your significant other, a fun work event, or a happy hour with your girl squad, we found the most practical ways to transform your work look from serious business to seriously fun. Keep reading to try out our method for yourself, and shop the post to add the essential pieces you’ll need to pull it all off. 


Step One: Choose your base

Our go-to base is usually a jumpsuit, slip dress or a pencil skirt. These pieces are work appropriate but can also be dressed up for a fun night out.

Tip: go with a black or neutral for this part.

Step 2: Switch your shoes

Stick with your usual practical work shoes and toss your favorite pair of heels in your bag. Add some interest to your simple base by going with a pair of heels in a fun color, a unique design, or an edgy heel.

Step 4: Switch Your Purse

Leave your tote at work and switch over to a handy clutch! You can use a pop of color for this too, we are currently loving red and jewel tones such as emerald green and deep purples.
