In the city that never sleeps, there’s always something to do; getting things done at work, networking over happy hour, discovering new eats at fresh restaurants and meeting with friends to catch up. A girl needs versatility in her wardrobe to keep up.
Being in the financial industry for some years has taught me to dress smartly. I start my outfit planning with my shoes, because packing a 2nd pair of shoes in your bag leaves less room for other important things. Selecting heels that are appropriate for work, but can also be transitioned for a nighttime event is the key to all this. Take the Beverly; the front is a classic round toe pump with a minimal platform in an eye-catching blue, but the details on the back is what will get the “oh! where did she get those shoes” double take. I pair the shoes with a stylish sheath dress, some modest jewelry and a structured bag for the professional look.
In a small clutch, one that could fit into my work bag, I would pack a set of earrings, necklaces or bracelets that are a bit more dramatic. Et Voila! You are ready for that happy hour, date night, fancy restaurant without having to run back to your apartment to change in rush hour. Saving lots of time and money, a major win.
