Whether or not your office has a casual code for the last day of the work week, here is an idea that will take you from conference calls to cocktails without a hitch.
Start with a base outfit. For this installment, we’ll use a little black dress with a semi-deeep V-neck in an easy to wear jersey. To offset the V-neck, put on a simple chain necklace and a snug blazer. Feel free to get creative with color and pattern. Pointy toe flats will not only elongate your legs but will save your feet later on just in case happy hour turns into an all night affair.

It’s six o’clock and it’s time to beeline it into the bathroom for your quick change before the boss gets wind of your after work plans. The blazer? Stuff it into the bottom of your bag and pull out a colorful statement necklace that is sure to help get the party started. Switch out your conservative flats for a fun pair of peep toe pumps that you keep hidden under your desk. Last but not least, don’t forget your wrist candy. Throw your watch in your bag and pile on the bracelets. It’s been a long week; kick up your heels and sip a cocktail with your friends in high style.
