Signature Styling #10

net-a-porter






















We ask a lot of fashion.  And with the office party season now upon us we make even greater demands on our clothes, which need to transform from functional to fabulous in an instant!

The secret to fitting both work and play into your day is to get creative.  With just a little forethought, dashing from your desk to drinks need not cause a dressing dilemma. Just follow my simple steps to achieving sassy evening style... 

Plan ahead...
Start the day with a simple work outfit in a single colour.  Something versatile, that will not only work well as a neutral base, but will also continue to look crisp and fresh after dark.

Bags of style...
Carry a large bag with you that morning, one that's big enough to hold the pieces you will be changing into later in the day.  And don't forget to pack a smaller style, such as a clutch, which you can transfer your essentials into for the evening.

Have fun with fabric...
A change of fabric is perhaps the key sartorial statement which signals the switch from day to night dressing.  Swap practical office pieces for more party friendly styles in satins, silks or sparkling sequins. Or for a tougher fashion edge, why not try something in one of the new buttery soft leathers?

Add a pop of colour...
A flash of colour or print will instantly transform your look.  Add separates in bright, bold hues, or go wild in one of this season's animal prints!   

The finer details...
If a change of clothes isn't possible, then clever use of accessories is one of the simplest ways to dress up daytime styles.  Swap subtle office jewellery for more dramatic pieces, and those sensible work friendly shoes for something a little more sexy!
