Who wants to spend their beloved weekend standing in line at the grocery store? Not us! While it’s only somewhat less torturous to take care of these to-dos mid-week, it’s nearly impossible to carry anything more than your coffee cup in a pencil skirt and 4 inch heels. We know how to take our look from coffee to cocktails, but unfortunately, someone has to pick up the kitty litter and dry cleaning. So how do you transition your look for those days when you have something less glamorous to do aprés work? We’ve got just the tricks to make your Tuesday night tasks tres chic.
The great thing about a boyfriend blazer is that it pulls your look together whether you’re wearing a pencil skirt or ripped jeans. Throw it over a relaxed tee tucked into a skirt and your look is perfectly polished. Untuck your top and slip on your jeans for the loungy-lux look of Liz’s favorite fashionista, Nicole Richie. Swap heels for moccasins and you’re good to go! As an added bonus, the tights you’re inevitably wearing under your skirt look posh peeking through the holes in your best-worn denim!
A sweater dress with a slim silhouette and knee-grazing length is the empitemy of winter-chic and looks perfect with heels at the office. Keep your dress and throw on the rugged knee-high boots you’ve been living in all winter and, voilà, cozy and casual. As for jewelry, keep it simple by adding one of this season’s hottest jewelry trends, the statement cuff.
