Financial Times: Work to Dinner Dressing

Alice talks about over the table dressing and why it works for work to evening in this week's Financial Times style column: 

"My stock work outfit at the moment is a pair of wide trousers and some kind of soft, high-necked blouse, which is just as compatible with the office as it is a dinner party or drinks with friends," says Alice Olins, co-author of Step Up: Confidence, Success and Your Stellar Career in 10 Minutes A Day, and co-founder of the Step Up Club. "Statement tops are a brilliant way of feeling current without having to overhaul your entire wardrobe. I recently invested in two cocktail blouses from Self Portrait and Topshop with high necks and a gentle Victoriana feel."
