OOTD : The Perfect 9 to Late Look | Work to Play Outfit Ideas

Monday 6 August 2018

Hey lovelies!

I can't believe more than half an year has passed and we are in August already. I mean it just feels like yesterday when I was juggling between my 9 to 6 corporate job (that I quit back in February) and my blog. While managing two professions kept me on my toes always, there were some amazing perks as well, like getting ready to attend an event straight after work - which made me experiment a lot with my style that I made sure was apt from work to play.

And that's why when I picked these amazing palazzos recently from Cover Story, I knew they were perfect for a lot for work-to-play looks.

Getting this look together made me miss my corporate life days, when often a lot of my colleagues used to ask me how come I look party ready in a jiffy after a boring Monday. I used to carry a spare top or accessories along to make my outfit apt for the next event or party I was headed to after work.

I styled my navy blue palazzos with a chic H&M top that features little hearts and frilly sleeves that are totally cute and trendy. I paired my outfit with these stunning embroidered heels I picked online from Myntra recently and completed the look with my versatile Speedy 30 handbag.

Top : H&M
Pants : Cover Story
Heels : Mast & Harbour
Bag : Louis Vuitton
Earrings : H&M 

I think the highlight of this outfit is definitely my pair of statement earrings from H&M that make this outfit totally ready for a fun party after work.

Here are a few tips if you also want to nail the Perfect 9 to Late look every time you have those after-work plans that leave you no time to go home and change : 
  • Invest in key wardrobe separates like these comfy yet stylish palazzo points that are work-appropriate but can also be styled with a dressy top for an evening party.
  • Accessorize! A statement accessory like my H&M earrings can take your outfit from formal to dressy in a jiffy. 
  • Layer up your dress to work with a cool cardigan and blazer, and simply remove it when it's time to go party.
  • Another way to jazz up your outfit for the night out with your girlfriends after work is by just changing your formal shoes to a pair of strappy heels that will instantly glam your look.
