Planning to let loose after work? Why not gather up the girls for a few happy hours? No need to go all the way back home to change out of your business suit (or wrap dress, oxford and pencil skirt) to alter your look. Start off with shedding your blazer and loosening just a couple of buttons on your oxford! Accessories are agents of change. Take full advantage of the opportunities they afford to transform from posh professional to party perfection. Switch your style up by swapping your bag, shoes and jewelry.
The first order of business is to drop that huge briefcase/laptop bag/tote/catch-all and opt for a sleek clutch. As gorgeous as your lap top bag might be, there is no room for it at happy hour! You and your bag could become public enemy #1 & #2 if it happens to whack someone’s Mai Tai.

(Tip: For a very on trend look carry a clutch in neon or animal print.)
Your work pumps are already unquestionably fly so leave them on! The basic pump is a gorgeous back drop for a pair of heel condoms. That’s right, heel-condoms. Opt for dainty detail in lace, a bold bloom or flirty feathers. Clearly heel condoms have chameleon appeal that pleases personal style and fiscal fitness.

Your work jewelry will not shine at cocktail hour! Cocktail rings are increasingly popular and available in a variety of price points. YSL Arty Ring Collection is lust worthy while Forever XXI and H & M have affordable offerings. Exchange your standard studded earrings for a dangling, sparkling pair.
With these quick change tips you can arrive to happy hour fashionably early! Ready, Set, Re-Dresss!
