How to Take a LBD From Work to Drinks

No matter how much we love our jobs, there is no doubt that by Wednesday, all we’re thinking about is 5pm on Friday! That’s why you need to invest in a LBD, that will take you from a first date, to a wedding, to an important business meeting, then to after work drinks on a Friday night.

After some inspiration? Here are a few ways you can take your clémence dress from work to drinks.

Pick the right dress:

The first part of taking your LBD from work to drinks is ensuring you pick the right style! Luckily, we have a great range of timeless and versatile dress designs just for you. We’ve taken the hassle out of finding the perfect LBD, by offering you a range of Mulberry silk dresses that can be easily transformed for day and night with the right styling and accessories.

Options include the Premium Silk ‘Edie’ Gathered Crepe Dress, which can be styled with a white shirt for the office or worn on its own with a bold lip for post-work drinks.

The Jacqui Gathered dress in black is another perfect LBD to take you from your desk to drinks and it looks great worn with a fitted blazer and court heels for work or grunged up with a leather jacket and a touch of liquid eyeliner for night.


Now that you’ve chosen the perfect dress, it’s time to complete your look! We all know how nice it feels to refresh up your makeup after a long day at work and a quick touch-up can really make a difference to your outfit. Add a drop of concealer on your nose and under your eyes, blend with your fingers and don’t forget to powder! Top your eyes up with some of your favourite mascara, and define your eyes with some liquid liner. Add a touch of blush to your cheeks and a bold lip and you’re ready to go! No one will even know that you’ve come straight from a day full of meetings!

Swap your blazer for a leather jacket and watch your outfit completely transform from corporate to chic. If your drinks are more casual opt for a cropped denim jacket which will cinch in your waist. As our dresses are timeless, these outfit additions will work with all our dress designs so you can be ready for just about anything!

Leave your heels at work and swap them out for a sock boot. You can expect to see the sock boot everywhere this winter and for good reason! They will elongate your legs when wearing one of our dresses and double as a comfortable versatile winter boot.


Let down those tresses and shake up your hair routine. Braid your hair in the morning and spray with wave spray. Release your braid at the end of the day, and secure your hair into a half-up-half-down top knot, for a look that is effortlessly trendy.

If effortless waves aren’t quite your style, then try a sleek bun. Part your hair down the centre and secure into a low ponytail. Smooth your hair down and twist into a low bun and you’re ready to hit the town.
