Ten out of Ten: Work to Weekend Clothing

10 Winter Work to Weekend Clothing Outfit Ideas

10 Winter Work to Weekend Clothing Outfit Ideas 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

Welcome to the very first Ten out of Ten! I’m so excited to be introducing all of you to this new monthly series that I dreamt up over the holidays. I really got to thinking about creating helpful and actionable content for my readers, so I decided to style TEN outfits a month to serve YOUR needs. Next month, I’ll ask y’all to submit your votes to me via DM or email about what you’d like to see on the next Ten out of Ten!

Work to weekend clothing for winter featured by top US fashion blog, Never Without Lipstick

A lot of you ask me about how to get the most out of your wardrobe and which pieces are essential for both work and the weekends. So today’s Ten out of Ten is all about work to weekend clothing: how to style it, the most versatile pieces, and more! When it comes to work to weekend clothing, there’s really no reason to have two separate wardrobes. It all comes down to rethinking some of your favorite work outfits in terms of the weekend and vice versa. (Of course, there will be pieces that just don’t work for both – and that’s okay!) Think about how some of your wardrobe staples can bridge the gap. How could you style your favorite work blazer for a weekend dinner? What could you wear a patterned sweater with for the office? Solidifying your work to weekend clothing will become a lot easier once you start asking yourself questions in that frame of mind!

10 Work to Weekend Outfits:

OUTFIT 1 | WORK

When I shop or get dressed, I aim to think in terms of outfits instead of about the individual piece of clothing I’m wanting to wear. I think about where I’m headed (the office, brunch, a night out, etc.) and the overall look and level of comfort I’m going wanting. That’s when I start to realize that the white turtleneck tunic I’ve worn to work that week with my beloved Spanx leggings would be perfect with suede knee-high boots for the weekend!

Wear this Sherpa Denim Jacket Every Weekend

Wear this Sherpa Denim Jacket Every Weekend 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

Happy almost-Friday, lovely ladies! I took a look at this weekend’s forecast and it’s going to be a chilly one for sure. That’s why this cozy, casual sherpa denim jacket outfit would be the perfect option for any weekend plans day or night. It’s so easy to throw on, and you won’t be sacrificing any style for warmth. I’m also willing to bet that you might have some of these staples already in your closet. A striped turtleneck tee? Ripped skinny jeans? I think yes!

The real superstar of the show here is this sherpa denim jacket though. And it might not be in your closet just yet, but it definitely should 😉 I now consider it one of my winter staples when it comes to casual layering. During the spring and fall, I’m always throwing on an oversized jean jacket with dresses or over tees and black jeans. This sherpa version is now my winter replacement! And it’s much easier to style this jacket for a lot of different occasions than you might think. Head over to this board on my Pinterest for more outfit inspo! I’m particularly loving a sherpa denim jacket outfit that includes a leather skirt or trousers and pointy toe pumps.

If you have a sherpa jean jacket, what’s your favorite way to wear it? Let me know over on Instagram and make sure to enter the giveaway on this post (I’m picking the winner on Sunday!).

Velvet Blazer: A velvet blazer is what came to mind immediately when a friend asked what to wear to a holiday office party at her co-worker’s house. It’s an easy yet festive piece to pop over a business casual blouse-and-slacks look or work dress.

Embellished Jeans: Heading to more of a casual holiday office event or work in a casual office? Add in jeans like these with golden dots or sequins down the side for a festive touch!

Sequin Skirt: This skirt can surprisingly go casual or dressy quite easily. For a casual look, wear a chambray button down. To make it fancy, add pointy toe pumps and an off-the-shoulder sweater!

Plaid Pencil Skirt or Mini Skirt

Silk Tie-Neck Blouse

Wide Leg Velvet Pants: I styled a similar pair of pants in this post last year for a casual office holiday party look, but I love this cropped style for more versatility!

Tartan Hair Tie: Adding this hair tie to your everyday work look might just be the easiest way to get in the spirit for any office holiday sitch. You can wear it in a ponytail, bun, half-up/half-down, and your look will be merry and bright for under $17.

Velvet Wrap Dress: Always a classic option for casual or dressier events. Head here if you’re looking for more holiday party dress options under $100!

Winter White Sweater Dress: I styled this dress in gray here, but the winter white has the perfect wintery touch to it!

Metallic Statement Earrings: Along with the tartan hair tie, statement earrings are one of the easiest ways to get your outfit holiday office party ready. You can truly wear them with anything, BUT a velvet wrap dress would be a great option 🙂

Tips on Buying & Wearing Spanx Faux Leather Leggings:

  • I went with a medium in these just so that I knew I wouldn’t have to do that struggle dance you do to get too-tight leggings on if I’d gone with the small 😉 The fit is very true to size!
  • The length was a bit long in my opinion (I’m 5’7 for reference) and I plan on wearing these leggings with a bunch of ankle height booties. I took mine to the tailor and hemmed them to hit right at my ankle bone!
  • This might be TMI but here we go…I’d definitely make sure to wear seamless undies with these leggings! Anything else will show lines – ah, no!

It’s officially the season for holiday party dresses! I’ve been sick with a mini stomach flu bug so looking at these pretty dresses was the perfect pick-me-up. My friend actually enlisted me to go out shopping to look for holiday party dresses which got me thinking…

There were so many good options, but it seemed like a lot were overpriced! Holiday party dresses shouldn’t be outrageously unaffordable in my opinion. They’re usually meant for one occasion or one time of year, so your investment should match the expected wear you’ll get out of the dress!

Scroll down to shop some of this season’s cutest and most festive holiday party dresses under $100.

  • When it comes to the holidays, I usually avoid heavily sequined or metallic dresses. But this mini and this mini would make for the perfect tailored and tactful shiny option!
  • You can truly never go wrong with a velvet wrap dress for holiday parties! This $88 emerald number is one of my favorites in this round up of holiday party dresses.
  • If you’re heading to a more formal event or something for work, consider a midi dress like this one!
  • Last but not least, you can’t go wrong with a classic fit-and-flare party dress. The ruffle detailing on this burgundy mini dress gives it an updated yet feminine feel!

A Perfect Little Black Dress

A Perfect Little Black Dress 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

A few weeks ago, I was helping a friend’s daughter find a homecoming dress and stumbled across this perfect little black dress during my search. I couldn’t get it out of my head and knew I had to shoot it! The ruffle detail makes such a statement but still maintains the essence of a classic, perfect little black dress.

I think it would be an amazing party dress for the holidays or New Year’s Eve if you’re not into the sequin thing? It’s now on sale for $39, so it would also make a great, affordable dress for sorority/fraternity holiday formals coming up!

Don’t let the price fool you, though! The fabric doesn’t feel cheap at all and the fit was very flattering truly making it the perfect little black dress for the winter/holiday season and beyond.

I especially love this dress (under $45) and this dress (under $75) as alternatives to the dress I’m wearing in this post! They’re both the same material and also have a gorgeous statement neckline. Again, I love that these options are both really affordable while still being good quality. If you’re going to lots of events this holiday season and don’t want to outfit repeat, then save money on a few of your dresses with one of the dress options below!

Adding in a velvet crossbody or clutch keeps the whole look holiday and winter-ready. Those are two under $20 options from Amazon – bags for events can get beaten up/spilled on so no need to drop big $ on them! Last but not least, I think that these shoes are such a good one-and-done pair to have in your closet. I wear them all the time and they truly go with everything. Not to mention they’re very comfortable!

How to Style Sneakers for Winter 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

I never thought I’d be the person that would not only have multiple pairs of sneakers on my wish list at all times but also have so many different pairs in my closet. Sneakers have quickly become some of the most-worn shoes in my closet and now I consider them a wardrobe staple. They’re an especially good go-to shoe in the winter because they make for a nice, comfy break from boots and booties all the time. Boots aren’t always necessarily made for walkin’ ;)…

I’m sharing my tips and tricks I have for styling sneakers for winter outfits below!

4 ESSENTIAL TIPS TO STYLE YOUR SNEAKERS FOR WINTER:

  • If you have an outfit that you’re wanting to wear with boots/booties, I can bet that it’ll look just as cute with a pair of leather sneakers. Always a good choice if you’re going to be doing a lot of walking and want to be comfortable.
  • Pair sneakers with unexpected pieces like dresses or skirts. It makes for such an edgy change!
  • Pick a pair of sneakers in a neutral color so that you can guarantee they’ll pair seamlessly with everything in your closet.
  • Try on multiple styles before purchasing to make sure that the fit is flattering. Since sneakers are flat, some styles can shorten your leg based on the style or the toe shape. I avoid high-top sneakers and prefer low-top, narrower options because it gives the appearance of elongating my leg!

An Easy Way to Style a Herringbone Coat for Work

An Easy Way to Style a Herringbone Coat for Work 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

Who else is so bummed that our Dallas temps took a turn for the gross this week? I want a refund on this “fall” weather! But what I do know is that styling a herringbone coat for work will become a reality hopefully quite soon. This look was such a blast to shoot because this sweater dress (only $75!) and this herringbone coat (a score for $125) paired so easily with each other. Talk about mad potential for outfit repeating. My sweater dress is so cozy and easy to dress up or down for work or everyday. (You can find out more about sizing info in this post about fall dresses!) I sized down to an XS in the herringbone coat since Topshop coats had been running a bit too big in the shoulders for me.

Like I mentioned in this post, I’ve been looking for a non-wool coat option this season and this one fit the bill.

I love this herringbone coat because it’s:

  • In a versatile, tailored cut
  • Black and white (can go with anything)
  • Cozy & warm
  • Mid-length so it’s short enough to wear with all of your fall and winter work looks
  • At an amazing price point

5 of the Most Versatile Fall Boots

5 of the Most Versatile Fall Boots 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

There’s nothing I love more than bringing out my fall boots literally as soon as it’s September.

And now that it’s basically November, boots and booties are now becoming staples of our everyday wardrobes, yes? That’s why I decided to put together a list of the top 5 styles of fall boots that you should try to have in your wardrobe! Fall boots and booties can be an investment, so you want to make sure that you’re picking the styles that you can wear effortlessly with all of your outfits.

My Top 5 Most Versatile Fall Boots

  1. Over-the-knee boots: This may come as no surprise, but I think making an investment in a pair of over-the-knee boots is one of the best decisions you can make for your fall and winter wardrobe. I got my Stuart Weitzman Reserve boots last year during a major Labor Day sale and I’ve never regretted the purchase. Those boots are built to last and uphold their quality to make your investment worth it for many years. I also recommend looking on eBay for a pair! I just found a block-heeled pair that was really well-priced. It was a new pair that had been returned and potentially worn once, so that’s why they were discounted – win! I also always love looking to Marc Fisher for fall boots because he always makes great dupes. This pair would be a great option!
  2. Sock booties are perfect for wearing with your jeans that hang a little too long to hit above your boot. I like to wear skinny jeans over the top of these boots just to sleek up an outfit – see how I styled them in this post!
  3. Heeled booties: I really never thought I’d find a pair of booties that I could wear with skirts and dresses. I had seriously given up all hope until I found these boots. This pair won’t cut your leg in an unflattering way and give you borderline cankles. The way the shaft of the boot tapers in is so flattering. Now, I know this pair is an investment, but once you find a pair like this it’ll make it worth every penny. I got my pair 25% off, so I’d recommend keeping an eye out for this pair to go on sale again! I also adore this pointy-toed pair I discovered last season; they’re comfy and go with everything. I got them in two colors!
  4. Tall boots: There can sometimes be such a big focus on OTK boots when it comes to fall boots and we all forget about regular ole knee-high boots! But I love when I see boots like this styled; they’re especially perfect for wearing with dresses and skirts. But they also make the perfect addition to any fall outfit with jeans!
  5. Pointy-toe ankle booties: Fall boots like these are the perfect pair for everyday wear and especially for throwing on with jeans all the time!

Now how easy was that? I know shopping for fall boots can be overwhelming with so many different styles out there, so I’m hoping that this list can help you narrow things down.
