'I have after work drink events and parties to attend over December and I don't want to spend money on party-wear I wont wear again. I also don't have time to go home and change.

Do have you any advice on how I can transform my work look into a party look with minimum fuss and expense?'

A Why not try a black tux style suit? This wardrobe staple will work perfectly for the office worn with a blouse and courts.

After hours slip on shimmering heels, switch your day bag to a sequin clutch and apply a stronger lippy and you're good to go! You can get major mileage out of a versatile tux.

Try replacing your work blouse with a gold tee shirt or replace your black tux jacket with a white one for after hours. The addition of bold drop earrings or a statement necklace can really transform a black suit into party-friendly wear. On a really tight budget?

Penneys gold sparkle clutch, €9, and gold chain belt, €4, will glam your suit up in an instant for €15!
