Influenced by style 'It' girls like Jeanne Damas and Sabina Socol, I went shopping to find two outfits that can easily take you from the office to drinks after work this summer. (Oh, and remember to add that red lip to complete your look)

Loved this simple polka dot shift dress, R629.

Add mint slingbacks with a bit of a heel, R759.

And a cute box bag with gold handle to round off the look, R659.

Add some lip colour with this beauty from Lancôme L'Absolu Velvet Matte 181 Entracte, R370.


Go for a curve-flattering wrap dress, R329.

Add some French girl faves, espadrilles, R429.

And some simple gold jewellery like a delicate chain, R129 and hoops, R99.

Add a Bobbi Brown crushed lip colour, R415 in regal.
