Work Wardrobe to Weekend Wear

Struggling with transforming your work wear to weekend? Take some tips on what to do with your current favourite staples and give them a relaxed edge.  There are a few wardrobe staples that I believe are easy transformers and wearing them this way is sure to make you feel more relaxed or perhaps a little less chiseled than you would during the week.

Give your classic trench coat a new look by tying the belt loosely behind your back to remove some of its structure.  Pull up the sleeves in a messy manner, leaving your undergarment sleeves sticking out the bottom and life the collar slightly at the back.

Rather than pairing your ankle boots with your pencil skirt and tights as you would for work, take them on an outing with a peasant style dress or a pair of jeans and a biker jacket to give them back their true identity for a change.  I’m a personal lover of the leopard print bootie.

Nothing says relaxed like a cross body bag, hands free is the best way to stroll around the saturday markets. Whether is Chanel, Chloe or Zara, wearing it across your body instantly plays it down.

Who said a white shirt is a work shirt! Undo an extra button, roll up your sleeves and tuck in the front only for a super chic undone sexy saturday night dinner shirt.

A pair of smart black trousers can totally be used over the weekend if you are not in the mood for jeans AGAIN! Style them with a pair of high tops or your favourite sneakers, a t-shirt and a parka.  They will not even know themselves let alone you.

The Working Week

So many people say that they don’t like spending money on work clothes and they despise getting dressed for work.  Most people work 5 day weeks, this means you spend 80% of your time at work, that’s a lot of time spent not dressing well and feeling uninspired.  So if you want to look good 100% of the time, you had better spend more time on your work wardrobe…

I personally love work wear, I love dressing smartly but with an edge, it can also be fun with gorgeous heels and flats alike, tailored jackets, sexy skirts, lavish blouses and structured handbags, what is not to love about that?
