5 Styles That Go From Workday to Date Night

From Meetings to Movie Dates: 5 Chic Looks for Work or Play 

Summer is here, which means it’s time for fun in the sun. It also might be time for a seasonal wardrobe refresh. Whether petite work dresses for the office or casual dresses for brunch, who wouldn’t want a few new dresses for the summer season? Summer means more afterwork plans—drinks on Friday, exploring a new exhibit at the art museum, and catching up with friends in coffee shops. The best part is you can create tons of charming outfits that work just as well during the workweek as they do on the weekend. Here are a few ideas to consider.
