I love finding pieces that can so effortlessly go from my workday to date night, girls night out, church, whatever it may be. It is great to build up your wardrobe with pieces like this that are versatile. It can be so easy to only think that these pieces are only neutrals like a great tan sweater or black jeans, but in reality that can be anything from color to a pattern or even a certain silhouette.
For work: I love spicing it up with bright colors or fun patterns but there are a couple rules I try to follow:
I also make sure the silhouette or style is still appropriate.
For me, that is dresses or skirts with length, especially if the top is more revealing and higher necklines.
Pair it with appropriate neutrals and accessories.
In this case, I chose a black wedge knee-high boot. It is appropriate for the office, comfortable enough to wear all day, and doesn’t distract from the rest of the outfit.
I also did a simple black wallet chain purse and a belt. I love that the belt gave me definition and I think the purse makes it easy to transition to date night or girls night out.
Going out: A simple way to take this from the office to girls’ night out or date night is pairing it with a jacket. If you want to dress it up, just add a black leather jacket. If you want to make it more casual, just add a jean jacket.
