Insanely chic outfits on the run

Dressing in a hurry

We all have been there: Having no time to pull an outfit together and there is an important meeting at work to dress for. Instead of throwing on yesterday’s outfit again, go for instant style. Like you can’t be over- or under-dressed in a LBD, a tailored, well-fitting dress in neutral colors always looks professional. Tweet this. Add the respective accessories and you are ready for a business dinner, a meeting with clients, and even date night after work.

Fitted dress plus trench coat

A knee-length classic navy day dress looks great with a taupe trench coat a gray belt, gray or navy pumps, and a red work tote, diamond studs, and a pearl necklace. Swap the pearls and diamonds for long chandeliers, the tote for a silver clutch, and the pumps for strappy sandals for date night.

Shirt dress plus blazer/cardigan

A below-the-knees silk printed shirt dress looks professional with a tailored blazer, work tote, and Mary-Janes/pumps. Add a man’s watch and you are ready.

Sheath dress with cardigan

In summer, a printed sheath is a no-brainer, if your work dress-code allows sleeveless dresses. Otherwise, a sheath with sleeves does the trick. Just add flesh-colored pumps to elongate your legs, pearl studs, and a work clutch to meet with clients. In fall, just add a cardigan over the sleeveless sheath or later a layering top under the sheath.
