Transform your look from day to night for the Christmas party

It is the Christmas party season and offices are buzzing with discussions about what everyone is wearing to the work party! Make your daytime office attire work for the evening by just adding a couple of statement pieces and make-up to instantly glam up your entire outfit.

Need some inspiration? Here are 6 quick and easy ways to transform your office look into your party outfit:

1. Makeup
Pick a statement lippy that makes you pop. Choose a colour that you wouldn’t normally wear in an office atmosphere like dark or scarlet reds or pinks.

Use a bit of blusher to brighten up your cheeks, and top up your eyeliner. Make yourself look bright and fresh by using a highlighter on your cheekbones, tip of your nose, top lip, just below your eye browns and the inner corner of your eye.

2. Jewellery
Jewellery is the easiest way of achieving a quick change. Choose some on trend chunky, statement pieces like droopy, big earrings and balance them with bracelets, a ring and/or a necklace. You don’t need to overdo it!

3. Heels
Not everyone wears heels to the office, so for those who don’t, a pair of heels will make all the difference to your look! Go for bright colours, leopard print, and super sparkly to instantly make you ready for the evening.

4. Blazer
A good blazer never goes out of style and will not only transform your look from plain to polished but will keep you warm in the chilly winter weather. Go for either a sparkly, embellished or bright number to set off you look.

5. Handbag
There’s nothing that transforms your work look quicker than a glitzy handbag. Change your oversized handbag for a simple messenger or clutch bag. Just make sure there’s enough room inside for your phone—and lipstick, of course!

6. Hair
Loose waves, or a loose messy chignon are great options! Add a simple embellished clip to loose hair to make your look a bit festive. If you opt for an up-do, a loose messy chignon (mid length) can create a relaxed but classy look.
