Along with fire drill and sports days, birthdays at the office are a sure shot spirit dampener. Firstly, you cannot treat yo’ self the way you’d imagined all year (unless your office pampers you with manicures and cocktails). Secondly, heading to your birthday bash in meh-inducing office clothes can hit the snooze button on festivities like nothing else!
Having trouble squeezing in a quick change before your party? Fortunately, there are a ton of stylish outfits you can curate for work that, later, you can rock for birthday drinks. From chic metallic dresses to party-worthy co-ord sets, here are some chic birthday outfits to take you from AM to PM and beyond!
1. Striped Excellence
This striped birthday number will sail you through work and make you more than ready dinner with the family later. Just a few additions, like statement earrings and an evening bag. Also, we recommend a strappy block heel, to keep your feet comfy and stylish all day, with it!
Stay fashionable for work and kill it at your birthday jig in these blush co-ords. Change your undershirt into a slinky tank top to be party ready. Carry these metallic silver pumps to work and add to your outfit before you step out for the evening.
It can be a bit OTT on regular work days, but on your birthday, you get a free pass to work a bright red outfit at the office. So, use that to your advantage and opt for this chic satin piece. How about a pair of pearl-studded mules to complete the look?
Big fans of the classic white and navy blue combo ourselves, we picked this flared floral number for your birthday date. This fitted white blouse will give you just the touch of youthful charm you need for office wear and your big night.
All the lazy girls out there, rejoice! ‘Tis the season to gingham and this ruffle detail jumpsuit is at the top of our list. Add a metallic belt and bag to change up your look for a sangria soiree with your girls.
To wear sequins at work may be a big no-no (booo!), but we found you a brilliant substitute. This sombre metallic number, with an add-on or two, is a great option to go from boardroom to bar in seconds.
If you are in the mood to wear happy colours on your birthday, this is how to do it. Pair a multi-coloured blouse with solid bottoms and smart heels. If you find it too bright for work, just throw a blazer on for the day.
