So your day is going to go like this: First, you’re killin’ it at the office—beating those deadlines and just generally skyrocketing toward that promotion. Then, you’re out on the town, sipping colorful cocktails and celebrating just what it means to be a fearless workday warrior (i.e. you). It’s a plan worthy of carrying out, but wait, how do you dress for it? Enter this no-nonsense outfit with pieces that will easily take you from office meeting to Happy Hour.
A versatile slip dress paired with a sturdy wrap coat yields endless possibilities for day-to-night looks. For the workplace, pull on a high neck sweater for a chic take on business casual. For drinks, ditch the cozy sweater for a faux fur stole, and voilà! Instant glamour. Switch out the brogues for some high-class loafers, then go minimalist with a simple metal choker. Remember, not all workday heroes wear capes—sometimes they just wear chic basics.
