Wondering what to wear to happy hour? The key to knowing what to wear to happy hour is understanding that happy hour times are during the weekday right after work. Meaning that you want to come to happy hour looking appropriate and not look like you are going to the club. If you are going to happy hour then typically you are going to an after work happy hour. I also feel that an after work happy hour is a great place to meet quality men (click here to read my post on that). For this very reason because they are probably coming from work which means they have a job.
With all of that being said, of course you want to look good for happy hour but you also want to look presentable for work as more than likely you cannot go home and change after work. Happy hour typically starts between around 5pm and the last thing you want to do to is go home and try to change your clothes and miss happy hour all together. Therefore, your outfit has to be versatile for work and for happy hour. So here are nine happy hour outfits that you can wear to work and to happy hour that are under $25.

This dress is more fitted and I would not recommend going with your shoulders out at work. But putting a sweater over it makes it more appropriate and when you take the sweater off you have a sexier but more fitted look for happy hour.

I love this dress it is so cute and so fun. It has somewhat of a sleeve so you may get away with it in the office, but even if you have to cover up when you get to happy hour you can take off the sweater and have a cute dress underneath.
