Day-Night Transition

Day-Night Transition

I frequently get questions from readers looking for ways to dress for work that will transition well to a Friday evening out. And that evening out has ranged from just heading to happy hour with a few friends right after work to a proper date night with someone special or someone you’re meeting for the first time. Though those are two completely different situations, you’ll want to look sharp and put together for either one. And in the case of a first date, you definitely don’t want to appear as though you’re trying too hard. Here’s some inspiration for a seamless day-night transition.

Get the Look

If your workplace has a relaxed dress code or participates in Casual Friday, this is a look that will cover all the bases. Dress up a pair of slim dark denim with a well-tailored blazer. And think seasonally when it comes to your shirt and tie. Rather than the usual dress shirt, choose a more rugged alternative and pair it with a simple textured wool tie.

For looks that are more or less monochromatic, use the opportunity to add some contrast and accents with your accessories. A patterned pocket square and scarf casually draped around your neck will make a stylish impression.
