From Desk to Drinks: 10 Frocks Capable of Making the Day-To-Night Transition
Posted Monday July 30, 2012 7:05 AM GMT
As if preparing an outfit for the 9-to-5 grind isn’t hard enough, some of us ladies have to keep the after-hours in mind as well. Meaning we need to put together something professional and playful – a fine line to walk in fashion at times.
However, we’re here to tell you it can be done! There are a slew of frocks you can don that will take you from work to play, no prob!
The secret is in the detailing. Snag a dress that boasts a subtle peplum flare. Or, if you’re obsessing over the monochrome trend right now (like us) then opt for sophisticated garb that’s nothing but black and white.
Another aspect in a dress design we look for to make sure our attire can take us from day to night are cutouts. These sexy accents should ONLY be on the BACK of the dress. Waistline cutouts are not appropriate for the boardroom, ladies.
Totally discreet, a cutout back can be hidden under a blazer during the daytime, making your frock totally work-appropriate. Then, during the evening you can shed your layering option for the big reveal of a getup that’s totally worthy of even the swankiest of places. Can you say, wow-factor?!
Check out 10 dresses we love that are completely capable of making the day-to-night transition!
