These Fashion Editor–Approved Outfits Will Take You From Boardroom to Bar
Heading to a date straight from the office takes off the pressure of fussing over what to wear. Usually, a polished pair of jeans (or pants), mules, and a cute top fit the bill for both work and drinks afterward. Then, if I need an extra boost of confidence, I'll swipe on a red lip—easy.
Better yet, you probably have all these in your closet already. Wondering what to wear on your next weeknight date? We put together a few fashion editor–approved options.
On a day where you need to keep your outfit semi-professional, swap out your blue jeans for a colored denim, and pair with a simple (but sultry) wrap blouse. Finish off your look with silver mules and a bright red lip, and you'll be ready to head to the bar for your date.
This outfit is perfect for happy hour—when most people are still dressed in workwear. A lacy blouse is professional while still being date-appropriate while the red pants add a seductive touch. Pair this with comfortable slides and a structured mini bag.
Is your office jean-friendly? Pair high-waisted denim flares with a frilly top for the perfect day-to-night look. All you'll need is statement mules and a beautiful bag to add a little visual interest to your outfit.
There are those days when you need to look like a million bucks, both in the boardroom and at the bar. If your day consists of an important board meeting followed by a Michelin-starred dinner date, try a sleek pair of white paints mixed with a dramatic black top with statement sleeves. A deep red lip and Gucci mules will complete this powerful look.
