Anyone go straight out on their christmas do from work? What to wear?
Same here, tights, pvc skirt and lace top tucked in with ankle boots. I'm not sure anyone in work bats an eyelid on these days, it would be quite common where I work for others to come dressed up for heading out later. It happens weekly, not just Christmas. Couldn't you swap the tunic for a dress and leggings/jeggings for tights? Maybe just bring some different shoes? It's my make-up I have issue carrying around as I wouldn't normally carry any to work.
I'm probably wearing dark blue skinnies, lightweight sparkly jumper, dark blue fitted, velvet blazer. I might upgrade the jeans - I thought I skinnies and I were over - but they do work well with the blazer. I'm in a public facing role that day and it wouldn't look right if I were too dressed up and I'm far too idle to bring a change of clothes. That's for a meal and drinks - nothing hardcore.
I normally do black skinny jeans, black heeled ankle boots, swishy coat, sparkly top, jewellery. I change into the sparkles and jewellery then leave the work top at work - would that be ok for a couple of weeks if it's just one top?
