How Do You Transition from Office to Evening?

We love how this sparkly jacket instantly takes us from day to night

I've gotten into a pretty good flow lately when it comes to picking out office attire. My closet is stocked with tons of basic pieces, so all I have to do is some mixing and matching to keep my outfits looking fresh week in and week out. It's hard to go wrong when you can pair a pretty bow blouse with almost every pair of pants and skirt you own, you know?

But when it comes to figuring out what to wear on the days when I have after work plans things get a bit more difficult. Do I slip on a basic black dress (classic, but a little boring)? Or do I wear something a little flashier and risk looking too far out for the office?

It's a tough call, but when I spotted this Sequin Bed Jacket ($89.50 at Victoria's Secret) I knew I'd found the perfect solution. The sequins add just the right amount of dazzle to even the most unglamorous of getups, and it's so thin I could easily stow it in a drawer at work without having to worry what it will look like when I pull it out (sequins = wrinkle-free!). Which means I'll always have it on hand to amp up an outfit for a night out, rather than having to plan the perfect day to night look at home.

What's the one piece you wear to take your look from day to night? Chime in below!
