Looking for some advice on how you can change your office look to meet up with friends right after work? Good friends, old friends, new friends and special friends.
If you're not sure how you can easily change your office look when you begin your morning knowing it isn't going to be the usual office to home day, stay tuned. Imagine you get a text saying "Long time no see, how about tonight?” What if you have a feeling that this day is not going to end with a trip to the gym or watching tv, but rather with meeting somebody you haven`t seen in a while? Have you been casually scanning over a dating website and there was this one guy you found a bit interesting, but he never answered your message? Now all of a sudden he does and proposes a date for tonight? All I'm saying is that a work day can be planned. What happens afterwards is due to fate, faith and adventure (see also: Be prepared for the unexpected). We should go for it once in a while, because it gets us going and makes us feel alive. Sure enough, we have to change our look or, at least, be prepared to change our style last minute. If you have to travel to the other end of the city in order to change your clothes, it might be too late or too spontaneous. Now check out how easy it can be to change your style completely from one second to the next. From the perfect office outfit to an easy, casual and sexy after-work look:
1. Casual old friends, good friends in a coffee house.
In the office: Pull a blazer over a dress and wear heels that match the color of the blazer and a neckless. It's a perfect office look.
In the evening: Take off the blazer, swap the heels for sneakers and you will feel comfortable meeting your friends at a street cafe. Worried about the temperature? A light sweater or cardigan can easily be carried in your handbag.
2. With friends in the cinema.
In the office: Wide leg pants and a blouse in any color you like - not too tight . If you have a make or break meeting, wear a hip long blazer over a blouse and culottes. High heels are needed.
In the evening: Pull an oversized sweater over the blouse and take off the heels. A pair of flats or sneakers and you will be perfectly comfy for a movie.
3. Italian restaurant with somebody, who might have potential
In the office: Sleeveless top, light summer suit and high heels paired with a neckless.
In the evening: Take off the suit jacket and pull on a hip-long cotton cardigan and sandals. If you want, you can leave your heels on and put a belt over the cardigan.
4. Later on in a bar, possibly still with the same guy
In the office: A pencil skirt and a grey t-shirt with heels. A safari jacket will keep your warm on your way to the office. A pair of cool earrings and an it-bag completes the look.
In the evening: While still in the office, change your skirt and pull on a pair of jeans. Lipstick and earrings, put your safari jacket on and you're ready for the bar.
In general: If you are meeting someone spontaneously and don`t have the time to change your look, don't worry, if your style doesn't impress your date – forget him or her. They aren't worth your time. But it is better to be prepared, because it makes YOU feel better.
