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’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.
