Says stylist and founder of How Do You Fashion Cris Pearlstein, “A sleeveless top that normally hides under a conservative blazer or classic cardigan is the perfect thing for after-work drinks. Simply add a rich berry lip and a pair of statement earrings—you’ll be transformed in two minutes flat.” Be careful to avoid these fashion mistakes that make you look messy.
