The best outfits that take you from desk to dusk

The days are getting longer which means our social lives are getting busier (yay). What we need is outfits that can take us straight from the day job to the bar without much fuss. To ensure you look cool, and keep even cooler as the temperatures rise, here’s our top picks for the new spring/summer season. 

What a slit!

That’s right, slits will be your new best friend from the spring right through to the autumn. Conservative enough to wear with confidence in the office, but switch your top into a silky cami in the evening, and you’ve got a totally different vibe, perfect for a naughty night out.

This slip dress from Topshop is our top choice thanks to the ease of being able to dress it up or down. 

That’s all white...

Do not underestimate the power of a white shirt. Crisp and clear for work, but oozes class during any night out (well, as long as you don’t spill your Strawberry Daiquiri down it).

We can’t get enough of this oversized number from Cos - perfect for catching the breeze. 

Crop that

Is anyone else as obsessed with culottes as much as we are? Not only are they perfect when spring/summer feels like it hasn’t quite arrived yet (come on sunshine), these bad boys conceal any fake tan mishaps (oh come on it happens to us all).

Team these with a simple cotton t-shirt, or off the shoulder number for a stylish day to night outfit friends and colleagues will be envious of.

Top of the charts for us is this pink pair from ASOS.

Slinky sliders

No outfit is complete without something on your feet. Sliders are the practical way to air your feet in the city heat while remaining fully on trend. If they’re good enough for Rihanna, they’re good enough for us.

We can’t get enough of these rose gold ones from Office.

Have you got any top tips on what to wear? We’d love to hear them. Tweet us @allbarone or comment on our Facebook post. We’ll give the best ones a shout out.
