Work It #4: Guest Blogger My Style Companion

4Nicola Fulstow is the owner and Head Stylist at My Style Companion, who offer personal shopping, style advisory services, and advice to ladies in the UK.

When considering a dress that would make a transition from boardroom to bar, I would look for comfort first –something you won’t get too hot and bothered in, or creased. That way you will naturally feel fresher when getting ready for the evening.

I would also look for a relatively simple dress with not too much fuss, so that you can accessorise according to the occasion – whether it be work or play, or work after play.

I like the M&Co cream military shirt dress due to its simple yet flattering feminine shape. The tailoring works well for a smart work look, but if you added animal print and/or metallic accessories, a clutch and high heels, this wouldn’t look out of place in any bar for after work drinks.

I’d tie hair up in a cool top knot, add a bright neon lipstick and heels, and sling a shrunken leather jacket or biker jacket over the top to dress it down.
