Often, the occassions at work that call for LBDs are far for formal than those that call for LBDs after hours. Instead of staring blankly into your closet for the better part of the morning, day dreaming about how you’re going to accessorize your boring LBD in efforts to turn it into something fabby, start off on the right foot. Invest in a few more edgy slash personality filled LBDs. I’m not talking bandage minis, rather LBDs that incorporate a few leather panels or asymmetrical lines you don’t often see in the corporate world but when donned appropriately can be a fun & chic alternative. Starting with a solid foundation piece makes finishing the outfit easy – add a few understated gold baubles, some seasonally appropriate outer garments, & you’re on your merry way.
As always, keep the makeup natural & the lip understated. An oxblood lip at work? Please. This isn’t Camelot. No judgement. Love your happy hour specials.
Since this shift is sleeveless, cover those bicepts with a more masculine-cut blazer to round the edges, if you will, of the asymmetrical dress.
Keep it comfy, corportate, & chic with a neutral patterned pump.
As for happy hour, toss that oversized satchel aside & opt, instead, for your favorite fall flavored clutch & matching deep red lip.
Lose the heels for some eye-catching flats & call it a night.
