Step inside a room and say nothing, but you’ve already made a statement about who you are with your hair, clothes and shoes. Work is work, but after work is another story–time to relax, unwind, play and, while you’re at it, network. To make it easy to transition from work to play with a little hint of professionalism, we compiled a few good dressing tips—and best of all it requires no change of clothes.

For her: Loosen up your look by having a sack of jewelry handy, along with a bold-colored purse or clutch to liven it up. Ditch the work tote and blazer and change your pumps to open toe shoes, sandals or strappy heels.
