Like a boss, that's how.

Throw a summer-y blouse over your crop top to make it more office-appropriate, add in a casual cross body messenger bag to take the edge off those ultra-high shoes, and BOOM—you're ready for that 10:00 am meeting with the boss.

Pantsuits aren't just something you find in your mom's closet anymore, everyone. All it takes to make Kylie Jenner's stunning party look appropriate for waking hours is a chunky black boot and an oversized tote bag. Voila, nailed it.

Problem: last night's look has too much boob-age to wear during daylight hours. Solution: keep the slimming pencil skirt right where it is and balance the body-con with a high neck top. Add in a bright tote for good measure, because why not?

If last night's look is a liiiiittle too leggy to wear in front of your coworkers, take it down a few notches by rocking an oversized sweater and ditching your heels for stylish sneaks. Pro tip: choosing high-end designer sneakers will help prevent unwanted "casual Friday" vibes.

So, how do you give the day-time treatment to a sexy slip dress? No bigs, just pick up on the color of your dress (in this case a gorgeous cerulean) and grab a jacket + bag in the same color family. P.S. While slip dresses look cute with sneakers, we vote you keep the heels.

Fact: you can wear a crop top to the office. That is, if you style it right. Pair last night's belly shirt with a high-waisted skirt to minimize midriff (less than an inch is the sweet spot), and go ahead and exchange those sky-high heels for a chic pair of boots so the look is less "happy hour" and more "staff meeting." And if you end up with an impromptu pitch meeting, you can always zip a jacket half-way up.

Chunky carry-alls with contrast stitching scream day-time, and adding one to last night's look immediately gives it a sunny wash. Meanwhile, if your short skirt is inappropriate for work, go ahead and throw on a pair of embellished sneaker or flats. In fact, if there's one thing you take away from this list it's that sneakers solve everything—especially when they're this cute.
