The 7 Key Pieces To Nail A Great Happy Hour Outfit

April 6 2017 10
Happy hour is, dare I say, the happiest hour (or two, or three) of the week so why not make your happy hour outfit just as fun too! Not only is it the best opportunity to catch up with friends on some wine, but it’s also an excellent opportunity to express your style in the middle of the week. Or at the beginning of the week. Because let’s be honest, Mondays are hard so happy hour is a must on particularly bad ones.

For many, a happy hour outfit is hard to pull off. Since happy hour often happens right after work, you want an easy transition into a relaxed outfit without having to change or running home first. You also want to feel a little more relaxed than you in your work attire. So here are my suggestions for the pieces that will totally nail your happy hour outfit!

 

Statement Jewelry

A stand-out piece of your favorite jewelry is the perfect touch for an after-work look. It will add some pizzazz to your look, and will make you look as excited as you feel! A bright dangly earring or a large necklace is the perfect touch, plus you can bring it with you and put it on while you’re on your way to the bar!

 

Bold Night Time Lip

Obviously, a bold night-time lip color instantly makes any look go from day to night. A dark red lip is my go-to. And it’s easy to bring with you. Just bring it in your bag and put some on before you leave the office. No matter what you’re wearing, a dark red lip is a fun addition and will feel very evening.

 

Clutch

Clutches are so cute, and they come in so many varieties and sizes. For going out, I personally love to go with a sparkly or metallic clutch that adds a night-time feel to my look. What can I say? I love shiny things! But for a more formal event especially after work hours, try a velvet one!

 

Jumpsuit

You know I’m obsessed with jumpsuits for many reasons, but they’re a great transitional choice for a happy hour outfit because, with just a few changes in jewelry and makeup, it can look super elegant and basically red-carpet ready in no time. Also, jumpsuits are sooo comfortable, so you’ll feel relaxed all night while looking absolutely fabulous with a cocktail in hand!

 

Chic Blazer

A chic blazer can make you look extra polished and it’s a piece that can easily fit any happy hour setting, from casual to fancy. For happy hour, I love a longline blazer with a mini dress. It’s a little bit sexy but classy at the same time. Also, it can get chilly at night so it’s always a good idea to have something with you to cover up.

 

Classic Pumps

They’re classic for a reason. No matter what you’re wearing a pair of pumps will give you that fancy and dressed up look you’re going for. And if you’re not one who can handle too much time spent in heels, go for a block heel. They’re a little more comfortable for walking and longer wear, and they’re so on-trend right now.

 

Cocktail Dresses

What came first, the cocktail or the cocktail dress? Ok, probably (definitely) the cocktail, but I can’t help myself! The dress literally named after the drinks at happy hour is one of my go-to. You can dress it down a bit with a blazer or make it more formal with some bold accessories and heels! IAnd there’s no limits on what kind of cocktail dress. For the spring, I show off my florals and bright colors, and winter allows me to show off my LBD collection.
