3 Pieces To Take You From Desk To Dance Floor In A Flash

3 Pieces To Take You From Desk To Dance Floor In A Flash

Party season means our wardrobe and beauty kits need to be ready to go from desk-to-dancefloor quicker than you can say sorry-Karen-your-email-will-have-to-wait-until-tomorrow. Spend less time worrying about being party-ready after work with these 3 key wardrobe essentials, so that, come 5:30, you’re dance-floor ready.

The Faux Fur Jacket

We’re obsessing over faux-fur again this year and with stunning brands like Shrimps, Stella McCartney, and Jakke, as well as high street favourites like Topshop and Mango (below), it’s easy to see why. The addition of a luxurious faux fur jacket over tailored trousers or dress will instantly transform your outfit from 9 AM conference call to Out Of office.

The Sequin Dress

If you define yourself as a safe dresser, then the approaching Christmas season – and the shimmer and sparkles that go hand-in-hand with it – may seem daunting. But it’s not to be feared. For daytime, tone down your shine with a gorgeous, luxurious and warm polo knit beneath. Why not layer your dress with a pair of jeans for an additional sophisticated layer that’s perfect for meeting your CEO or significant other.

The Kimono

Channel the Orient with a beautiful statement kimono. Paired with a plain white T-shirt and a chic pair of jeans or leather trousers, this is a great outfit combination if afternoon lunch leads to after-work schmoozing. I love the rustic tones of this mid-length kimono from Folkster, below. Why not use a belt to create a more defined shape and waistline, too? Keep your makeup subtle and opt instead for a bold statement lip.
