The Slinky Slip
You have a casual office where you can wear sneakers and no one bats an eye — great. But can you wear what you wore on last night's date? Probably not. To make a slinky slip dress more business-savvy, layer in a thin turtleneck. Add sophisticated accessories, and finish off with those comfortable (and spotless) kicks.
The Sheer Top
This ain't a throw-on-and-go top, but with a few extra steps, you can pull off an early-morning-meeting look with an edge. Slip a pinafore dress over the lacy piece; slip on a low, coquettish heel; and stick to oh-so-subtle accessories.
The Strapless Dress
Keep the bare shoulders for after hours. For now, dress down an evening frock with a striped T-shirt and jeans layered underneath. The result is neither casual Friday nor corporate America, but rather perfect for a creative workplace.
A shortened hem could be risky from 9 to 5. The trick to playing down the skin: sticking with a flat loafer-like shoe, an effortless tee, and a super-sleek vest that pulls the entire ensemble together (and adds a little more upper-thigh coverage).
The Bra Top
Underwear as overwear won't trigger any alarms when the base of your outfit is a bit flowy and classic. The low-cut crop top gives a tired oxford-and-trousers combo an instant refresh, while the block heel and the structured handbag let everyone know that you showed up to work.
