From Office to Party: Essential Styling Tips

If you are a new arrival onto the work scene, you will no doubt want to look your best in your new working environment, and with party season just around the corner, here are a few tips on how you can go straight from the office to a party, and still look the part.

  • Take Make Up To Work – Get hold of a mini-make up bag, and with your eyeliner, blush and lipstick at hand, you can change your look at any time. Expensive scent is a must, and if you are partying at 5:00 p.m., top up at 3:00 p.m. with a tiny spray, which will be just enough to keep you smelling sweet long into the night. It is much easier to look your best for 15 hours if you have your makeup and wipes handy, which can be a great confidence booster. Don’t be surprised to find that you’re not the only one who goes for a half-time makeover, as others in your office will be making good use of the powder room.
  • Turn On The Sparkle – A sequinned jacket is the ideal accessory for party season, and with silver bangles for any occasion and some nice stud earrings, you can nail the working executive look. You don’t need to wear the jacket during the day, but it is the ideal extra for the chilly evenings, and with your makeup bag at hand, you can transform yourself in a New York second.
  • Statement Belt – A glitzy belt can be a great accessory to add some sparkle to that pencil skirt, and this is an accessory that is easily packed. As soon as work is done, add the belt, a few bangles, change those earrings and you have a whole new look.
  • Stick With Silver – Sterling silver bangles and chunky bracelets can be intermingled, and with a hint of turquoise in your earrings, the office and party look are never far apart. A classic silver watch is an essential, perhaps Swarovski, and with a range of bangles and necklaces in your bag, you can mix and match at will. Add a ring or two at the end of the working day to give your hands some new life, and that will be noticed by a few of your colleagues. There are more office party fashion ideas you can find online which might give you some inspiration.

If you’re really stuck for look ideas, that LBD is always an option, and combined with the right silver jewellery, you’ll look cool at any party. It is important not to over-accessorise when going from the office to a party. With the right touches here and there, you can refresh and glow for another few hours while relaxing with colleagues and friends.

Always remember, that essential half-time makeover will give you the edge, just make sure you know the look you are going to create and pack accordingly. The few accessories you need can be kept in a small bag, and all you need is 10 minutes in the powder room to transform into a party girl.
