Day to Night in a Heartbeat:
Holiday Dressing Made Easy with Grayes

The busiest social season of the year is upon us, and Grayes has the perfect antidote to the age old question: what do I wear? With a set of curated, work-appropriate essentials from Grayes that look as good in the workplace as they do after hours, your outfit woes are over! Scroll through to see how your new favourite pieces can have you looking chic from the earliest Monday AM meeting to the latest after-hours holiday party.

Searching for the ultimate day-to-night piece that can take you from boss in the boardroom to queen of the dance floor? Look no further: Grayes’ best-selling Blazer Dress will effortlessly take you from a 9 am meeting to 9 pm drinks and beyond. No need to spend time trying on outfits in the morning or pack an entirely separate look for eveningwear; keep it simple by layering the open blazer over a simple blouse and a pencil pant for an easy professional look. Once five o’clock hits, button up the blazer into a dress, lose the pants, and trade in your daytime accessories for a little evening-appropriate sparkle (think statement earrings). Apply a bold lip to contrast the neutral tone of the dress and you’re all set for a night out.

Never use ‘blazer’ and ‘boring’ in the same sentence again! The Notch Blazer is an updated take on the workwear staple with a figure-flattering fit and comfortable stretch that you won’t want to take off. Pair it with with the classic Pencil Pant for an elevated suit that’ll make you stand out in a sea of traditional workwear. Once you’re off the clock, pair it with your favourite skinny jeans and  a sparkly statement heel, or leather pants and jewel-toned booties and let the notch blazer keep you comfortable and sophisticated all night long.

In need of a one-and-done, go-to dress for any occasion? You can never go wrong with a LBD. The Cap Tunic Dress in black lace stripe makes this LBD a little more interesting and will be the most-worn item in your closet. Its simple, flattering cut and subtle elongating stripe pattern make it the perfect base for any outfit. Don a structured blazer for a no-nonsence look that’ll keep you cool and confident no matter what the work week throws at you. When it’s time for some well-deserved fun, head out the door in a flash by swapping out the blazer for a leather jacket and toss on some chic knee-high boots for a striking head to toe look. Layer on minimalist stacking rings, a nude lip and finish your look off with an en vogue clutch. Your evening ensemble is now ready to go, no changeroom required!
