When you’re at work all day in your professional clothing and you plan to go meet some friends at the local patio later or for a walk in the park, there’s no time to run home and change. So how do you dress for work and your social life, while staying comfortable, fashionable and professional at the same time? These pieces can act as basics to wear to work and then straight to meet your friends.
You can dress them up, or you can dress them down. Wear your jogger trousers to work with a pair of flats or heels, and then promptly change into your athleisure sneakers for a more comfortable look.
Be comfortable at work in a basic shift dress. Accessorize to your liking, and either way, it’s the perfect outfit for work and play.
A flowy midi skirt is the perfect basic item for work. Dress it up with a blazer and heels, or dress it down with a baggy t-shirt and athleisure sneakers.
Casual Friday can still look professional when you match a well-made cardigan with jeans and your favourite athleisure shoes. Once 5 p.m. hits, you can walk straight out the door to meet your friends.
A casual jumpsuit paired with athleisure shoes can be great for work when worn with a blazer. Then, ditch the blazer at 5 p.m. and go out for a drink.
You should be comfortable at work; however, you should also stay professional. A few simple changes here and there can change your work outfit into a casual outing outfit in a matter of seconds.
