Ahhh Fridays. The day you can’t wait to scramble out of the office and make it to Happy Hour. Preferably without any detours. That’s why in this feature, we’ll show you how to take your work outfit from day to night, with only a few minor tweaks.
A great suit is something we all have in our closets; a basic that we often use as our go-to look for interviews, presentations, and client meetings. But what if you could give your suit a second life, and style the suit as separates? Not only will you give your suit another purpose, but you are maximizing your wardrobe (and wallet) as well!
Many retailers are in the midst of summer sales, and now is the time to pick up a few suits that will work well as separates. Suits with interesting details or updated finishes works best when breaking them up into different outfits. But, to be an effective wallet-friendly option, be careful not to spend too much on trendy suits. Take this Mango skirt-suit that is on sale for $105; it’s a summer suit with interesting on-trend details and is budget friendly. See below for our styling suggestions.
