The Work-to-Patio Dress

By Allison Onyett, Jun 05


The patios are starting to fill up after work, and if you want to secure your seat, there’s no time to go home and change out of your office attire. The key is an outfit that will transition seamlessly from your daytime look, to something cute and fun for after work drinks.  

A bright poppy dress like this green pleated one from H&M can do the trick. Also check out Tristan's newFlared Sun Dress, available in a multitude of colours. Pair it with nude pumps from Aldo and define your waist line with a belt from Banana Republic. A blazer, like this button-less one from H&M pairs well and adds a corporate look to the otherwise casual dress.

In the evening, loose the blazer and opt for a denim jacket (The Gap has a great selection) and some glitzy statement jewelry like this necklace and cuff from Banana Republic. Go with a sexy sandal to complete the look. We like this Micheal Kors platform available at Browns.  


If you’re headed on beach vacation, a casual dress like this one doubles as a bikini cover-up. Or pair it with a summer scarf, like this dip-dye scarf from RW&Co. and casual sandal from Nine West, and you’re ready for a night out on the resort.
