Heading to dinner and drinks after work? Don’t panic. We’ve found 17 outfits to you take you there, no sweat. Steal the effortlessly cool style of these women to take your office style to party time.

Friday prep…

When choosing your outfit, a killer LBD, cigarette pants or midi skirt are all great options for dressing up for after-hours. How? Upgrading your accessories is the fastest way to say, “I’m ready for the weekend!”.

Add a statement necklace or bold earrings to an elegant office look, or change your handbag to an attention-grabbing clutch or bright shoulder bag.

The higher, the better

No, not your hemline: we’re talking heels. Slip off your ankle boots or office flats, and swap into a pair of killer, sky-high heels. Choosing a warm-weather style will also say you’re ready for anything by giving your outfit a hint of summer. Too cold? That’s what peeptoes are for! Just that glimpse of skin is enough to up the ante.

 

Polish your look 

A simple hair redo or style change can make all the difference when it comes to going from afternoon to after dark. Style your locks in a loose chignon (we love a low, side bun) but secure it with pins, not an elastic to avoid a bump. When 530pm hits, let it loose and you’re ready to roll.

Or try adding a statement eye or a bold lip to your look. A handy liquid eyeliner, shadow palette or cool matte lip colour are Friday handbag essentials – and don’t forget your cushion compact for touchups!

Here are 17 super-cool street-styles that effortlessly transition from work to play. Steal them, copy them, be inspired by them… cheers to Friday!
