Recently, the eco-friendly folks at LA-based shop Kika sent over this adorable skirted dress made of organic cotton & spandex jersey (aka super comfortable!). It’s perfect to dress up or down, going from cubicle to cocktails! And bonus…it has pockets!
Here are my tips to make the transition:
1) Go with a blazer or cardigan for the office, then ditch it for the evening.
2) Transition your accessories and go for a fun statement necklace for a cocktail look. Or add a fun belt (this dress came with a matching sash!)
3) Switch up the shoes from practical and conservative to fun and edgy (here, I just went with an open-toed option).
4) Go with a bold lipstick or dramatic smokey eye for the evening.
Ignore the wrinkles…I didn’t get a chance to iron before taking these photos!
Shop the look-
Dress: c/o Kika (same)
Shoes: cubicle | cocktails
Necklace: cubicle (option) | cocktails (option, option)
What other tips do you have for transitioning your look from day to night?

Such a pretty dress! I love Kika.
Thanks Ginny! Yes- I love your blazer from them too- so comfortable looking!
Great post Valerie. That dress looks amazing on you.
Thanks Agi! It’s the first full skirted dress that actually fits my shape!

Such a great dress! I own SO many in that shape- now I can follow these tips!
This is the first full skirted fit & flare dresses that actually fits me! So fun! Glad you got some tips from this post :-)
It’s funny – I have a very similar dress (except it has metal studs on it, so it’s a little funky), but I was thinking I could do the same. It just sits in my closet because I never know where to wear it, but if I added a blazer, I could definitely pull it off at work! Thanks for the idea!
Oh the embellishment sounds fun! You could totally rock that at work- happy remixing! :-)
