Work to Party

Posted on: July 25, 2019

Is happy hour calling you?  After a long day at work there’s nothing better than clocking-out and hitting the town to let loose.  More often than not our ensemble is great for work but too drab for off-the-clock activities.  Don’t worry we have your covered, below are a few ways to ensure that your outfit game is as strong as your favourite drink.

Today’s office culture is all about finding the middle ground between professional and personal style.  You can jazz up any contemporary look by adding patterns, prints and even a bold pop of colour.  An easy way to liven up an outfit is to replace a neutral colour with something more vibrant.  Colours like pinks, oranges and yellows can easily transition from day to night.  At Ricki’s you can find a variety of blouses that will serve as that great statement blouse and well as turn you into the office fashion icon.

Blazers are a wardrobe essential for work.  They instantly elevate any outfit and give a professional look but they don’t need to always look formal.  Try picking blazers with a looser, less tailored look that will work for the office but also off-work for a more casual look.  I personally look for blazers with texture as these can easily work just as well over a button down blouse as it will over a t-shirt.  The boyfriend blazers at Ricki’s are perfect for that business casual look and will easily take you from AM coffee to PM cocktail.

Look chic in trendy dresses.  A stylish dress requires minimal effort and is great for in and out of the office.  To keep it work appropriate, avoid anything too sheer or low cut.  Ricki’s has a great selection of dresses that are fun and flirty, just throw on a tailored blazer for work and easily transition after hours.

Make that reservation for tonight and take your office ensemble from work to play.  Cheers!
