Desk to Dusk: How to Take Your Outfit from Office to Party

A day in the life of a modern, professional woman may sometimes seem glamour-packed, but there’s a lot more to it than just pretty clothes. If your days are anything like ours, they're chock-a-block with appointments, meetings, deadlines — and that’s before you even get to the mid-morning coffee break part!! The hours are long and after the day’s work is done, most evenings include a social occasion or two, just to help us unwind from the day... Which leaves most of us with just minutes to transform an office look into something cocktail appropriate. But do not despair! Here are our three key style tips to take your look from desk to dusk – it's actually refreshingly simple... Layering is Key


When it comes to day-to-night dressing, building a wardrobe of staples that work for both casual and dressy atmospheres is key. For example, a simple white shirt is a versatile piece that looks good on any woman, and can be great to layer around. Opt for a style with clean, fresh lines and a modern yet classic silhouette. Then, add a long-sleeved pullover as it starts to get chilly or a pair of leather pants for a polished day-to-night look.

Olivia Palermo pretty much nails that, here! No surprises there...

Get your hands on our sharp-collared Madelena for a super similar look!

Add a Statement Necklace

A great necklace frames your face and provides the focal point of any outfit. Whether you go for something big and colorful, or something delicate and sparkly, a great statement piece can upgrade a simple, statement white shirt in seconds. Another reason it’s the perfect party accessory? It’s an excellent conversation starter.

Oh, look! O-Palermo has done it again! (This girl is verging on making us angry...)

Choose a Statement White Shirt and Accessorise


We're not going to even bother being modest now – our Madelena (right) is a must-have addition to any woman's wardrobe. The sharp collar and fold-back cuffs mean business, but tucked into a close fitting black leather pencil skirt gives a sleek contemporary evening look.

Can't decide on accessories? Our Josephine does most of the accessorising for you! Features a belted waist and covered buttons which give a shapely feminine look – this one is perfect for your desk to dusk wardrobe! We're obsessed...

And it wouldn't be post about office to evening outfits without our Penelope. The devastatingly minimalist shirt is simple and strikingly effective. The pin-tucked front panels and stand collar of the Penelope create a contemporary sort of grandeur. Pair with a tuxedo jacket, glossy stilettos and a hard case clutch after work for hard-hitting "wow" factor!

Oh, and we nearly forgot to mention the best bit for all of you blog readers out there – we're having 25% off sale for our special customers... THAT'S YOU!
