‘How To: Desk To Date Style’ is part of the REISS video series featuring fashion expert and TV presenter, Louise Roe. It’s designed to inspire your outfit choices for times when a day at work leads to plans that you want to feel special for. The focus is on completely detaching from the office and using an outfit change as the perfect starting point. The aim is to switch up certain pieces to feel as though you’ve had time to go home and get ready.
This look should be true to your personal style and something that you feel comfortable and confident in; it’s a chance to really let your hair down and relax. Switching structured, tailored pieces for something more fluid will reflect the mood of the night. A metallic wrap skirt works in lieu of a sharp pencil skirt and can be teamed with your silk blouse from the day and a pair of striking heels. Alternatively, styling your work blazer with leather trousers instead of a suiting style will instantly change the aesthetic and put an on-trend, off-duty slant on a classically smart piece.
For a total outfit change, swap your work dress from a colour-pop playsuit and keep wearing the same jacket. Easy to change into and especially effortless to pack, it’s a simple way to make a big impact. If you happen to keep a pair of heels under your desk for such occasions, make them your footwear of choice and sweep your hair into a fresh style to feel as though you’ve had a total makeover.
