It’s spring (kinda) and that means less hibernation, and more G&T’s after work. Cue the ‘work to wine’ outfit.
A work to wine outfit can be a tricky affair. Too Worky can make you look like a boring toad and you might miss out on that hot guy noticing you in the bar. Too Winey (new word) and you run the risk of looking a tad inappropes with your bangers out in front of the boss.
There’s a fine line between smart and sexy, and you want to be teetering on that line (unless you work in healthcare like me, then you need to be firmly on the sedate side of things).
For my recent work to wine outfit, I paired leather-look trousers with a jumper and blazer for the work portion. Flats were a must to tone down the brashness of the PVC trousers (also so my feet weren’t broken at the end of the day and I could dance later).
The jumper kept things under wraps up top. I went for a camel tone to match with the white blazer as I felt it contrasted well against the black and introduced a third colour without detracting from the blazer itself.
As soon as the clock struck 5.30pm I was ready to change. I threw on my trusty leopard print stilettos and removed my jumper to reveal a jazzier lower cut top.
It wasn’t a full outfit change, so I couldn’t be accused of trying too hard, yet I felt much better swanning around with my Cab Sauv wearing my heels.
These KURT GEIGER leopard print stilettos offered a subtle print clash with my stripey blazer, they’re from several years ago but i’ve linked a similar style below. If you’re still getting to grips with Print Clashing check out my ‘How to’ post here.
This blazer is actually part of a co-ord set with shorts. I am craving some warmer weather so I can try out the full look, but until then I will just pair it with trousers and shiver my way around London.
I hope you have a fantastic week.
