Summer is approaching and we know what that means! Parties, BBQs, bar-hopping and late night clubbing. Make your Friday night simpler by heading out straight from the office in one of these party-friendly work dresses.
The secret to work-to-play dressing is to find pieces that can be quickly transformed. Look for shift dresses that can act as tops worn with tights or slim fitting pants, then as a mini dress after hours.
Backless or halter-neck dresses or ones that have other features such as cut-outs which can be hidden with a jacket at work and can be later revealed, will give your outfit night-time cred.
Classic below-the-knee dresses can be made party-ready by adding a statement necklace and some heels. Just leave your work shoes at the office and off you go! Sacha Drake's 'Ultimate Black Dress' can be worn in over 20 different ways (see video below) - now that's adaptable!
Have fun girls!
