Picture this, you’ve been at work all day, you’re in your business attire and you get invited to a party or a night out. You have no time between finishing work to get home and change before meeting your friends – what do you do? In a similar manner, you’ve been out shopping at the weekend, and you are wearing something simple, such as jeans and a t-shirt. You need to go straight from the shops to where you’re meeting your friends, such as a bar, or the cinema – you have no time to change, what do you do?
For some people this is the ultimate conundrum – a sudden or forgotten invitation to a social event can make them very happy, but can cause them to panic over what to wear – especially if they haven’t prepared. However, there are ways to combat this fear, and go out with your friends without having to make too many changes to your outfit.
As the Scouts always used to say: be prepared. You can be prepared for this happenings by always carrying a spare outfit or an addition to your outfit with you. This will be easy for people who have a car that they can store clothing in, but can also be very easy for those that work in an office. Storing another set of clothes out of sight, in the drawers under their desk or in a cupboard can mean that they can change their clothes very quickly.
You don’t have to have very formal evening wear set aside, you can simply have a spare pair of trousers, shoes or a top to hand that could quickly make your look more suitable for a night out with friends. If you wear make up, think about carrying some extra make-up or hair products with you, as changing your make-up from day to night can be very simple – simply add some eyeliner and a bit of mascara to ensure that your night look is complete.
This may sound extreme, but quickly buying another outfit, or another item of clothing to wear over casual attire, such as a scarf, a coat or mens blazer jackets can make such a difference to your look. Alternatively, buying a new pair of shoes, such as heeled shoes or more formal shoes will instantly make you look like you’re ready for a night out, and wearing proper shoes will mean that you won’t be turned away from any clubs or bars for wearing the wrong shoes.
If you’re prepared, or if you’re willing to spend a little bit of money, you can easily make the transition from day to night very quickly, and perhaps best of all, very easily. So remember to bring a spare set of clothes, or to buy something that makes a statement such as mens blazer jackets in order to make sure that your surprise night out goes as planned.
