Desk-to-Date outfits are a recurrent topic here at Creative Fashion. But for summer, let´s focus on desk-to-picnic outfits instead. Forget tailoring and sharp lines because what we’re talking about today are versatile 70s inspired dresses that are quick to transition from the office to the park and back again.
Throw on a nice blazer and you got a work-look, but remove the topper then switch to espadrilles and you´re ready for a Barbecue party. Who needs to go home and get changed if you can do a round-the-clock look?
1. Bandana Print Ring Slip Dress
Put on a white tailored blazer over this midi length slip dress with bandana print all over. Complete the look with black peep-toe heels or with classic court shoes for the office, but carry with you a pair of espadrilles of flats to change into after work.
2. Stripe Shirt Dress
This stripe shirt dress is very much ready-to-go. Teamed with black, ankle-tie platform wedges, it will take you to the office and straight to the park, as is.
3. Stripe Pinafore Sun Dress
This classic sun dress with trending pinafore details is so adorable you´ll love wearing it to a casual get-together with the friends at the park. But since you don´t want to go home and change, you can wear it to the office by covering your shoulders with a navy-blue long cardigan.
4. Wrap Dress
A wrap dress is always sophisticated, but since this wrap number has a fuss-free style and simple look, it´s easy to style it up for the office and down for an after-work picnic at the park. Wear it with gorgeous wedges.
5. Stripe Wrap Dress
Yet another wrap dress updated with a loose fitting midi style and ever trendy monochrome stripes which looks utterly sophisticated with strap high heels for the office. Swap the heels with flats or wedges and you´re ready to party.
6. Soft Pinafore Dress
LBD is always a summer´s favorite but why not update it with this season´s trend, the pinafore details? Add a contrasting jacket or cardigan and luxe embellished high heel strappy sandals for the office. Change into some espadrilles or wedges for the BBQ party.
Remember, summer’s all about 9-9 dressing so look for dresses that will take you from hot days in the office to picnics in the park and pub garden drinks. For more options, check out the 9-9 Dressing at Topshop.
