Desk to Drinks

Let’s face it, for most of us, majority of our time is spent in the office.  With this being the case, you want to feel cute and confident, while still sporting an appropriate outfit for the environment you’re in. 
However, what happens when your friends call you to meet up for after work drinks and you have no time to go home and freshen up your outfit?  We know, it sounds like a disaster but that’s why we’re here to help and prove its far from one!

We understand how important comfort is, especially since you will be transitioning from a full day of work to either a bar or restaurant.  You could always consider bringing a change of clothes to work, but why do that when you can easily transform the same outfit?  By playing around with staple wardrobe pieces, you’ll be sure to pin down the perfect outfit.

Before we get started and share our top picks for desk to drinks looks, there are a few tips we want to share!

  1. Don’t be afraid to explore with colour.
  2. Use accessories to your advantage.
  3. Get those heels out.
  4. A spritz of perfume can get you a long way.
  5. Focus on fabric.

Below we have a range of styles which we feel can be transformed at any moment of the day, for any occasion.  Between, dresses, tops, pants, and jumpsuits, we have it all at Montique.

Let’s start off with a classic yet chic, little black dress. The possibilities are endless. Since a straight cut off-the-shoulders dress, a spotless sheer lace top paired with pants or a pencil skirt, or even that classic yet stylish jumpsuit that can be dressed up or down. All of them can be paired with a cute flat during the day, and a stiletto at night. Add some sparkling earrings when you head to those drinks and immediately turn that look to glamorous.


Another inspiring look that goes from day to night is the most beloved print: floral! This print is elegant yet sophisticated and can easily be dressed up with some glitzy heels and a statement handbag. The flowy fabric delicately frames the body and creates a gentle feminine aesthetic that is perfect for day-to-night. The colours add a pop of bold colour to your look and can be an excellent inspiration for the accessories colours.

If you’re looking to switch it up, why not take a look at bold colours? We know that bright colours can change our mood and make our days happier and funnier. At night, those colours can be the soul of the party and make you feel glamorous and attractive. Sometimes the simplest outfit can make the most significant statement, especially with some pretty accessories.
