For the days when we have to slip to a movie or a date right after work, but cannot bear the pain of going back home, we took a trip to the H&M store in High Street Phoenix to stock up on some work-to-night outfit hacks. We had a brilliant time and here are some fun, travel-friendly and super convenient looks we came up with.

Sport A Short Skirt

A plain brown short skirt such as this would hardly take any place in your bag, and you can replace your work pants with these. Tuck in your work shirt and you are good to go! Preppy, anyone? Add these classic {and not painful} pair of black shoes to this. The skirt is for INR 5,999.

We’d wear it for: Dancing with the girls

Throw On A Kimono

If you have worn a plain black jersey dress {INR 799} such as this to work, throw on this warm asymmetrical kimono. We love this for how this kimono {INR 1,999} feels like a hug and acts like a blanket for those AC-blasting restaurants. You can also just carry this cute blouse with a bow {INR 1,299} in your bag and wear it on top of the dress. This instantly changes the look and also makes the dress now look like a two-piece outfit with a blouse and a skirt. Also add some accessories, like these leaf earrings {INR 699} to the outfit.

We’d wear these for: A fancy dinner with the folks

Cover With A Cardigan

Slip into this grey cardigan {INR 2,299} on to your jeans and plain white shirt for simple date night at the movies. You can also add a classic pair of heels from here such as this to your outfit if you decide to head to a bar later.

We’d wear it for: A movie date night

Don a Swishy Skirt

We loved this long striped skirt by H&M. Chuck the blue jeans and retain this basic black tee {INR 399} after the clock hits 7pm and this on for your night plans. Plus if you roll the skirt {INR 3,999} up and put it in your work bag, it’ll save up space too. PS: twirling this is only half the fun.

We’d wear it for: A Salsa Night {eating or dancing, you name it}
