Office to Festive

I hope that you have all been having a great building up to Christmas! As some of you know from my Instagram & Twitter, I am writing this from Paris. I can’t wait to share the pics and the stories from our trip, but first I wanted to share one of my best style type for vamping up a classic outfit.

When I was doing my live stream interview for Passion4Fashion, I was picture from one of my readers of their office outfit and was asked by one them to share my thoughts as to how I could make it more fashionable, turning it into an evening or festive city style. I thought that the question was quite a good one as turning a plain look into something more special without going over the top is something that I myself have struggled with in the past.

My first big tip to to take your outfit our of the office is to add a statement necklace. There are some great pieces around in a range of prices and every type of necklace can really alter a plain top and in such a different way that people will actually think you are wearing a completely different outfit. I have been loving silver chain Dylanlex statement pieces and the cheaper alternative from stores such as ModayBesos and boho coin necklaces that you can find from most online retailers such as H&M.

My second tip is instead of buying a plain t-shirt, top or blouse, buy one that has some neck detailing, such as beads, a collar with detail or studs. One of my favorite pieces this winter has been a plain black Missguided body that has a beautiful lace-up design up the front. It goes with everything, isn’t too flamboyant but is a great and easy piece to wear to get an eye catching fashionable look.

Finally ripped jeans really add a fashionable touch to any look. I would either get an old pair of jeans and distress them or I would buy a cheap pair and experiment with them. It’s as easy as adding one cut over each knee and then giving the cut a quick rip.

So with some ripped jeans, a plain top with some neck detailing or statement necklace and a black leather jacket, you can easily go from office drap to Christmas fab! 😉

Happy styling everybody!

  1. For myself, working in a resort comes with some rather restrictive dress codes. So the holiday Christmas party is a great time to see everyone dress up and look their best. I almost wept when I saw our company party had a change of venues for the year…from a nice hotel ballroom to a barn on a ranch out from civilization! And it lived up to what I was expecting…Ugghh!

    As for you though…Christmas in Paris!

    Enjoy and have a great holiday season!
