Lani’s Tips

-Layering key pieces,  such as a sparkly top or statement necklace can really transform your look. Pair this with a simple pair of dark wash jeans and black patent pumps for a seamless transition from office to dance floor. Don’t forget a pair of glam earrings to finish the look!

-Replacing a business-y blazer with a cool leather motorcycle jacket gives your look an edgy feel.

-Lightweight items,  such as a lace skirt or sequined top can be easily kept folded in your work bag until needed.

-Accessorize! Glam jewelry added to any outfit when coupled with a bit of nipping or untucking changes your look easily.
