Unfortunately for hopeless romantics, Valentine’s Day is not a federal holiday. If you’re a working woman, you’ll most likely have to head out on your date right after a full day at the office. But just because you’ve spent the last eight hours at work, doesn’t mean you have to show up for dinner in boring office clothes. With a little prior planning, you can easily transition from a conservative daytime look to a sexy night-time outfit.
Start by wearing a sexy set of lingerie under your work clothes. A pretty set of bra and panties will set the stage for evening adventures, and will make you feel more sensual all day long.

Bring a small tote packed with a pair of strappy heels that are too hot for the office. Trade out your daytime shoes and leave them behind in the tote, to be picked up on another day.
Wear a surefire style: the little black dress. The LBD is always an easy go-to piece for work or play. Choose a slinky number with a sexy, low-cut back that you cover with a jacket during the day, and can bare once the evening arrives.
Don’t forget a pretty clutch. Carrying a giant laptop-size workbag is the opposite of sleek and stylish. Bring a small hand clutch in your tote and fill it with essentials before you leave the office.
Freshen your face. You don’t have to haul your entire makeup collection to work. Simply pack the necessities for a touch-up, such as concealer, lipstick, blush, and eyeliner or mascara. You may also want to pack oil-blotting papers. As for your hair? All you need is a teasing comb and some hairspray to go from daytime drab to nighttime fab.
Most importantly, leave any negative work experiences behind at the office with your work bag and shoes. Whether you whine to your date about your work woes or not, just thinking about them can bring you down. Leave it behind and look forward to the potential of your Valentine’s Day date!
