We’ve all got busy schedules, so the key to maximizing your time, and social calendar, is to make your shoes do double duty. Our stylists are showing you how to do just that—ensuring that your pumps can take you from 9am through sunrise. With the help of a few essentials stashed in your desk drawer, your look will go from dusk to dawn in no time at all.

 

Nude, patent heels go with everything—especially crisp linens a black and white color palette. Start with a fresh button-down buttoned all the way up, add a black skinny pant, structured tote, and your “go-with-everything-you-own” neutral heels and you’re boardroom-ready in no time.

When it comes time to clock out, ditch the button-down for a fun and flirty crop top. Throw your essentials into a tiny chain crossbody bag, and top off the look with attention grabbing hoop earrings. Happy hour, here I come!

Drama isn’t necessarily a bad thing—a structured cape demands attention, as do sexy snakeskin pumps. Keep accessories minimal, and add in a neutral turtleneck and your trusty black skinnies, to get you through your morning meetings.

As 6pm rolls around, don’t be afraid to keep the drama going. Loosen up a few buttons and opt for an optical print pant to keep things interesting. Keep a touch-up kit in your desk drawer, in the event that you’re feeling bold enough to rock a bold lip on a Tuesday night.
