In the REISS video, ‘How To: Go From Day To Night’, television presenter and fashion expert Louise Roe delivers tips on how to switch up your work outfit for an evening of socialising. These are occasions such as after-work drinks, the theatre or a professional event when you need to look sleek and sophisticated without appearing as though you’ve come straight from the office.
Think ahead and pack a bag the night before to make for a relaxed morning and a considered evening outfit. If you’re wearing tailoring during the day, focus on one key piece that you can switch out to alter the whole look easily. For example, a pair of slim-leg trousers will work just as well with a silk cami or a printed top in the evening as it does with a white cotton shirt for day. Considered details will make a big difference – towering heels and a little extra make-up, for example, can transform a look in an instant.
There’s a focus on balancing work and play within your looks in this video. Slip a sleek clutch or a suede pouch into your daytime tote to use for evening and be sure to remove one item before adding anything else, as small differences can make a significant impact. If you’ve worn a bandeau dress to work with a sharp single-breasted blazer, simply take it off to reveal your shoulders and switch your footwear for an effortless but striking change. Jewellery is also easy to pack and, chosen well, can be the final touch that makes all the difference.
