How to: the desk-to-dinner look

Friday, in particular, is the day to go for a drink or dinner straight from work, but what if you don't feel like bringing a bag of clothes with you to work? We'll show you the looks and give styling tips to easily create a day-to-night look - think layering, accessories and a touch of make-up. Get inspired and create the perfect look from desk-to-dinner! 

The foundation of your look 
Do you want to create a look that's perfect to wear all-day? Create a timeless foundation with tailored pants and heeled sandals - these are perfect to wear 24/7 and always look stylish. In the evening, the easiest thing to change in your styling is to swap your top, blouse or blazer for a more chic style - think a silk top or blouse or a cold-shoulder top. In the evening you can show a bit more skin, add statement colors or go for a more slouchy style. Swap your tote for a small clutch or cross-body shoulder bag. Do you need a cover-up on colder days - bring your tailored smart blazer for a sophisticated touch. You can also wear this tailored style loosely over the shoulders for a trendy feel and add extra warmth at the same time.



Perfect layering
Are you not sure you're going for drinks or a dinner in the evening? Create a layered look in the morning with a casual-chic foundation - think a silk camisole or blouse, dressed-up sweatpants or tailored pants and heeled sandals. You can wear a blazer or cropped jacket as cover-up to work. We love the sporty-chic touch for both day and night.
A touch of make-up
A touch of make-up is perfect to upgrade your look from day to night. Create a neutral look in the morning with foundation, blush and mascara - add eyeliner as wished. In the evening you can give your neutral look a touch-up and choose to accentuate your eyes ór lips. Go for smokey eyes or go for bright lips - don't wear both heavy eye make-up and lipstick; less is more! Do you want to upgrade your neutral look in a subtle way? Add a luminizer for a subtle shimmer. Shop or make-up selection here for a perfect 24/7 make-up look.
