Work to Bar Style

Tuesday 26 November 2013
French Connection Trousers (3)

Once upon a time there was a young(ish) girl who worked all day everyday, tap tap tapping on her keyboard, when one Friday night a handsome fella dropped an invite into her mail box for Friday night cocktails. But to her horror she realised she was in her frumpy office outfit, oh what would she do?

Ever get that feeling? Office wear isn't known for being sexy, however with a few tweaks, a quick (un-sexy) change in the work loos and your ready to go from work to bar style.

All you really need is a pair of show stopping trousers, some slinky heels, and the rest you can keep on- yes that white work shirt just got moved to the frow. 

These trousers by French Connection are just the slinkiest thing I've seen in a good while. They are that gorgeous wax-y style, and the subtle glitter just makes them perfect for dazzling that handsome princes eye across the bar.

Plus, without going all sensible on you, there also perfect because, shhhh, they don't crease, so you can fold them into your work bag for that Cinderella transformation come 5:30. Who said fashion wasn't practical?

The way I see it, the less time spent changing outfits, the more cocktails you can fit in at the bar. Now that's my kind of fairy tale ending.
