For the career girl, it’s not always easy to juggle engagements. From that all-important board meeting to the lunchtime date to evening drinks with friends; one day, three events and zero wardrobe changes.
For the modern woman, it’s important to be able to dress appropriately for various commitments in one day. Although it can sometimes be a challenge, once you have the formula, it’s not as difficult as you make think.
If you’re looking for some quick and easy ways of transforming office attire into evening glam, here are 5 very important tips to save you from revisiting your wardrobe before your next engagement.
Shoes Say it All
The shoes you wear can make a huge difference to your outfit. Court shoes, brogues and low-mid heels are the most appropriate for workwear or flats can give you a more relaxed office look. For an evening look, style up your outfit with some stylish stilettos or some cute kitten heels. If you want to create a statement look, go for a bright injection of color. Or if you want something up to date, go for the latest footwear trends.

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize
Lose the laptop bag and swap it over for your clutch; one simple change could turn a daytime ensemble into the perfect evening outfit. It’s all about the accessories when it comes to changing the tone of your outfit. To make this transformation easy, choose something that can act as a blank canvas. For instance, a plain and simple black shift dress can be extremely versatile.
Choose Statement Costume Jewelry
Statement jewelry is a huge trend and a bright bib necklace or an oversized ring can really add a stylish edge to any daytime outfit. Teamed with coordinating shoes or evening handbag and you have the ultimate recipe for a cocktail date.
Go for Designer Wristwear
Make your outfit stand out with a designer watch. A designer watch is an essential piece that every career girl should have. Watch brands such as Michael Kors, Breitling, Seiko, Omega, Accurist, Oris (visit Market Cross Jewellers for the Oris collection), Longines or Versace are renowned for striking, recognizable designs which are also timeless. And the simple addition of a designer watch can transform your look instantly.
Create a Quick Up Do
Basic buns or top knots are extremely up to date and can be worn for both day and night; this look can be easily achieved using hair donuts and hair slides. Or to create bouncy curls or vivacious waves, use some quick and easy heated rollers. Heated rollers can create wonderful waves within minutes and can be left in as you freshen up your makeup.
