I like to find versatile pieces that can transition from workwear to evening wear. I am sure most of us have pieces in our wardrobe that can do this, we just need a little help putting it all together.

Corporate to Evening | Ma Belle Allure | Florence and Marabel
Hello, I’m Simone Parker from Ma Belle Allure. Thanks for dropping by. I am so excited to bring you another styling video from my collaboration with Toowoomba boutique, Florence and Marabel. I like to find versatile pieces that can transition from workwear to evening wear. I am sure most of us have pieces in our wardrobe that can do this, we just need a little help putting it all together.
For our first look we have chosen a flattering pair of slim fitting pants teamed with a silk blouse. We have tucked the blouse in to highlight Cara’s slim waist. To make this look work for the office, you can team these pieces with a pair of metallic lace up Oxfords. Metallics are huge at the moment and you will see more and more of it coming through. Next, add some low lustre timber beads and an oversized metallic bag to finish the look. An oversized metallic tote is the perfect accessory for this corporate look.
To up-style this look for the evening, we have kept the same pants but opted for the same colour blouse and chosen one with a v neck and an eyelet tie detail around the neck. The blouse details make the look dressier. We’ve chosen a strappy rose gold and white heel which is feminine yet comfortable because of the block heel. Finally, we have added a rose gold clutch which ties the look together.
For Gabby we have chosen a Little Black Dress with on trend lace neckline. For a corporate look we have teamed this gorgeous dress with a tailored black jacket. The eyelet, tie detail around the waist and low V of this jacket is flattering if you have a larger bust as it draws the eye to your slim waist. This jacket would also suit column, hourglass and triangle body shapes as the cut of the jacket effortlessly creates or accentuates curves. Teamed with a patent black heel and classic drop earrings creates a stylish corporate look.
The same dress teamed with a fabulous black leather jacket transitions the look into evening. To tie in with the leather jacket we have teamed the dress with a black, studded, leather block heel. The silver studs on the heels tie in with the silver zips on the jacket and earrings. The height of the heel is perfect for dancing or standing at a cocktail party but is also stylish and on trend.
