Is your office Christmas party fast approaching? Panicking about what to wear? Fear not! This week, we’re giving you the inside scoop on how to go from desk to dance floor during the festive season. The perfect looks to transition you from 9-5 to VIP in an instant!
Layer Up By Day, Dare To Bare By Night
We love to layer up a look and this styling tactic is the perfect way to make party pieces wearable in the office, before revealing their true potential for the bar. Our iconic Firefly Dress with its stand-out butterfly print is the ultimate piece to stun at your Christmas party. Style it back for the day by wearing it over our roll neck Marsh Top, throw on a pair of opaque tights and chunky loafers. Keep your hair in a loose low pony and tone down the make up. When the time comes to bring the glam - shed those layers and bare some skin! Add a pair of skyscraper black court shoes, let your hair down, swipe on a bold colour pop lip and grab your clutch. You’ll instantly look like the belle of the ball.
Add Some Texture
Adding in a decadent fabric is a great way to make your look go from day to night instantly. Nothing feels festive like a touch of velvet, so try swapping your work trousers for our Kupu Pants to nod to the season. Wear with your work shirt (our Gatekeeper Shirt is ideal for the office) and then layer over an evening top to really elevate your look to the next level. Our Marianne corset inspired top will look effortlessly cool and bring the fun factor for your party style. Wear with your highest heels and get ready to have all eyes on you.
Switch Up The Shoes
We love that so many of our looks can be transformed just by pairing them with different accessories. Nothing lifts an outfit like the right footwear and our monochrome magic Lioni Dress is the ideal piece to take you anywhere – with the right shoes of course! By day, wear with flat black brogues for an office-friendly look. By night? Go for height and wear a pair of skyscraper barely-there sandals that will instantly elevate your look. Add a winged liner to your eye and a ruby red pout and you’re ready to wow – even if you only have 5 minutes to transform!
Pop On A Print
Work in an office where you always wear black? Then adding a pop of a powerful print will instantly upgrade your outfit and give it a party feel. Add on our Camofly hairband or wrap the Papilio Scarf in your hair, follow with a pair of statement earrings (we love our Astrid & Miyu Crossing Lines Hoops) and you’ll feel ready to celebrate with your work crew.
Swap Your Top
Whilst a full outfit changeover may not be doable if your changing room is the office bathroom, a quick top swap is an easier way to add a dose of glamour to get you party ready. Wear our burgundy Kizzy Trousers with a cosy knit and loafers by day. When the clock strikes 5:30pm, swap your knit for our stunning asymmetric Yen Top. Tie your hair back into a slicked back ponytail, add on a pair of Astrid & Miyu Rope Charm Hoops and some metallic high heeled sandals and you’ll shine for the season! All you need is a glass of champagne and you’re ready to roll.
Now you know how to transform, it’s time to come out of your office wardrobe cocoon and emerge as the Christmas party butterfly you are!
