When we head out the door to get to work, more often than not we plan to finish up our days and return home afterwards. But every now and again, an old friend will text us out of the blue — or a happy hour with coworkers appears out of nowhere that we just can’t miss out on! We don’t anticipate these things happening, but sometimes unexpected plans are the most enjoyable!
What isn’t enjoyable about situations like this is when we aren’t prepared with an outfit to change into. When we want to go out after work but aren’t feeling the clothes that we came to the office in, the first answer seems to be picking up a substitute option to throw on so we feel better suited for the evening’s activities. But listen: you won’t have to go out and waste money on something that you’ll probably never wear again when you have this perfect blouse that can seamlessly transition into the nighttime!
This gorgeous Nordstrom-exclusive top was made to be a versatile piece. It’s simple and understated enough that it can be worn in a professional setting — yet special enough to wear for an evening out and about on the town. The day-to-night adaptability that this blouse effortlessly has makes it one that we feel everybody needs to own in their closet. It’s sure to become a staple piece!
This top from Halogen is designed in a classic, loose-fitting cut with billowy long sleeves that cuff at the wrists. The sleeves slightly puff up at the shoulders that make for an interesting shape — and the neckline is cut square, which looks chic and flattering. But the truly special element to this blouse is the lace overlay detail that goes over the neckline that cuts high and provides a sheer effect. The lace extends down the front of the shirt for an extra-texturized touch.
This top comes in four different colors, all of which are equally stunning. The black shade is the most elegant, while the white and pale pinks are slightly more casual — and the yellow is definitely the boldest color of the four. The overall look of this top is dependent on the rest of the outfit. Our suggestion? Tuck it into a pair of high-waist pencil leg slacks with a matching blazer and some pointed-toe pumps for the office, then shed the jacket and add a statement earring to the look for the perfect night-out outfit.
We’re not surprised that shoppers “love this top for work and weekends” and are calling it “beautiful.” One shopper even said that this Halogen blouse “looks even better in person than on the website.” The only way to find out if that statement reigns true is to order it for yourself — we know that’s exactly what we’ll be doing!
