Party season is just around the corner and we’re planning how we can transition from work to wine o’clock with minimum effort. Luckily, Hobbs has a great selection of separates and dresses that can be mixed and matched, whether you’re off for cocktails or a candlelit dinner. Think plush velvet suiting, metallic detailed dresses, feminine blouses and cigarette pants. Here, the Hello! Fashion Monthly team give you their low maintenance tricks to make the switch from workwear to wow without a drama.
“I need to be smart by day so this blazer and matching trousers look the part and work hard with a high neck blouse or fine knit. If I’m going straight out from the office I rely on 60s style dresses - this one with statement sleeves looks great with a metallic heel and opaque tights.”
“When it comes to desk to disco dressing I can always rely on a trusty roll-neck. For day I'll wear it with jeans, heels and an oversized coat, and then I'll slip into some smarter trousers and an on-trend velvet blazer for post-work dinner or drinks.”
"My wardrobe is predominantly monochrome. This classic dogtooth coat works perfectly with this flattering 2-in-1 shirt-sweater combo for meetings. Then I'd switch it up for a more glam evening look with a velvet cold-shoulder top teamed with a luxe faux fur stole."
“I love the pink and purple colour blocking, which is perfect for brightening up a day outfit, while by night, the midnight blue silk blouse and velvet bow heels really elevate the look, teamed with a slinky velvet jacket.”
"I love this lurex baroque print pussy bow blouse, perfect with dark denim for work appointments. AND this elegant evening dress has solved my black tie style dilemmas. Cue velvet heels, a clutch bag and an Uber please!”
