As a mom who’s constantly on the go, time-saving techniques are essential, especially during the holiday season! With so many events to attend with little time to prep, I asked the ultimate style maven, Rachel Zoe, for her secrets to taking a look from the office to after-hours in no time flat!

Taking your look from desk to dinner doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Whether it’s an elegant clutch, the perfect pair of pumps, an edgy biker jacket or a bold red lip and topknot, you can effortlessly elevate your look without having to completely overhaul your original outfit. It’s simple with just a few tips!
Give your basic blouse and tailored trousers an edgy update by adding interesting outerwear. Simply tie your hair up in a topknot and throw a black biker jacket, faux fur shrug or feather vest over your shoulders.
Sometimes all you need is a bold lip, smoky eye and a piece of statement jewelry to feel confident and ready for a night out. Find the shade of red that’s right for you, an eye-shadow palette you can keep in your handbag and dust off your favorite pendant necklace or cocktail ring.

I also suggest keeping a sleek pair of pumps or heeled booties at your desk so you can swap out your sophisticated loafers in a pinch. Whether you prefer a classic or playful style, you’ll feel instantly sexy and not to mention, tall, without any effort at all.
