3 Easy Work-to-Play Looks

Friends out at a bar for happy hour

Here’s a happy hour don’t: you show up for drinks with friends after a long day at work. Your shirt is freshly untucked – and now wrinkled – in a hasty attempt to loosen things up. Instead of appearing cool and casual, you just look, well, sloppy.

Truth is great style never clocks out…even at the end of the workday. We’ll show you 3 easy ways to transition your office ensemble to get you ready for a fun night out. And it’s all at Burlington for up to 65% off other retailers’ prices every day.

Pink dress that can be taken from day to night with bomber jacket and sandals for the day time and wedges and a choker for night time

Date Night

Dinner with your guy later? Start with a great base layer, like this lightweight dress in a gorgeous dusty rose, to take you through the day. This textured number is the perfect starting point for all your dress-ups and downs. For work, go for the bold…with a fresh ‘n feminine bomber jacket in pops of pink, orange and navy. Complete the look with gold metallic sandals – the must-have neutral for summer 2017.

When the workday’s done, lose the layers and show off your fun and flirty side. Take your look to new heights with chic camel wedges, plus a playful black choker.

Pink denim and printed tank top that can be taken from day to night with gray sweater duster and sandals for the day time and stacked heels and earrings for night time


Summer is synonymous with concerts. And there’s nothing worse than wearing stuffy work attire while trying to sing along with your favorite band.

Meet colored denim. Your new BFF. Why is it so great? Colored denim is easily dressed up, making it a more discreet way to wear jeans in the workplace. The trick to sporting denim at work is all in the pairing. A long gray duster layered over a graphic print instantly takes your look up a few notches. On your feet: go-with-anything white sandals to flaunt your new pedi.

Concert time? Slip off the sweater. Pop on too-cute tassel earrings in an unexpected hue (this teal color so fun!) and stacked heels in blush.

Brightly printed floral skirt and bright blue shirt to take from day to night with white denim jacket and sandals for the day time and blue heels and bracelets for night time


Here’s a great way to rock a cool print day and night. Pick a dominant color in the skirt and wear as a solid on top. This cobalt blue shirt acts as a great balance to the “louder” shades on your bottom half. Then layer on a white cropped denim jacket (you’ll get major wear all summer long). Finally, add some sandals with sweet floral details for a cool girly vibe.

Later on, elevate your look with sky-high heels, plus an armful of look-at-me-now bangles – perfect for getting you noticed on the dance floor.

Going seamlessly from work to play has never been easier – or so much fun! With minimal effort, you can enjoy maximum style for 9-to-5 and beyond. Head to your Burlington store or online to shop and save on all the just-in looks you need now.
