Wondering what to wear to #LTB18? You’ll be evening ready in the blink of an eye with our stylish desk to dinner guide. Next up, THE ELEVATOR PIECE …
If you’re at work and need to be smart and dinner-ready in the blink of an eye, there are a few ways to switch dress codes for evening. First, wear something plain and beautifully cut (not fitted) that translates well into the cocktail hour. It will be the perfect blank canvas to layer on glamorous details like chandelier earrings, statement cuffs, cool clutches or amazing heels. Literally, let your hair down … or twist it into a chignon. Show bare ankles or some décolletage – it’s as important to subtract as it is to add.
And remember, more is more in the shoe stakes …
