Office Wear from Day to Night

cotton news office wear day to night 2

Dressing for your 9 to 5 every morning doesn’t mean you need to show up to work looking bland and boring, especially if you’re planning on hitting up happy hour after a grueling day at the office. Luckily, cotton is the perfect fabric to get you through your busy schedule and then out to cocktails. With breathable knits, classic silhouettes and playful prints, you can take a work appropriate look from your desk to a dinner with friends just in time for a bite or two.

One of our favorite pieces is a pencil skirt. The slimming effect of the knee length design says professional and polished by day and sultry by night. Cover up with a cotton cardigan while at the office, than simply throw that lightweight cardi in your bag to step up your look at night. Keeping your basics simple in neutral hues will give you the option of pairing a plain cardigan, like a black or white sweater with a dressier statement piece, such as a pair of floral printed pants. Another great day to night option is an LBD. The little black dress is so sophisticated and as Karl Lagerfeld once stated, you’re simply never over-dressed or underdressed in a little black dress. In this case, it’s best to go with a high-neck style in a flattering A-line cut. Finally, if you work in an office that allows denim (we applaud all work atmospheres that do), then a fitted pair of skinny jeans or a dressy pair of flares are perfect when paired with a nicer top and jacket.
