Good evening my fellow fashion fans,
I thought for today’s post I would dedicate it to the hardest working item I own in my wardrobe and its equally conscientious items in contention.
Personally I think every wonderful woman’s wardrobe should contain that all important crisp white shirt. It is that one item that as long as it has been washed with light colours (cue Daz commercial) and has not gone that awful grey hue (which has happened to all of us I know) always looks fresh, minimalist and clean. Either paired with a sassy pencil skirt or those incredible cigarette trousers which you have been flummoxed as to what to wear with so are banished at the back of your closet with the forgotten hair ties or odd socks. One of my favourite ways of styling my white shirt is as below
I wore my Uniqlo slim fit shirt buttoned up underneath my fantabulous monochrome black and white blazer from Gap, skinny black trousers from Massimo Dutti and black laced up brogues from Dune. The red lipstick and smoky eye effect worked perfectly with the two tone ensemble.
One of my fail safe, last minute.com outfits of choice for that whimsical social event, swanky date with your partner or formal meeting at work would definitely be one of my array of Little Black Dresses (LBD). I just love how versatile they are – dressing it up with a sky high pair of stilettos and big jewellery or going casual with flat tasseled shoes and a nice jacket.
On a recent night out I wore this outfit
The dress is a vintage Italian lace one I bought on one of my many unplanned shopping trips, which I paired with my nude Christian Louboutins, my mini Chanel bag, a wonderful pair of chandelier earrings and my bespoke timepiece by Mont Blanc.
I would say if in doubt about how dressy to go for an event you are invited to, I always add layers of unique, eye catching trinkets around my wrists or wear a jewelled hair band which instantly adds the glam factor but also can be removed in a jiffy if you feel a bit too theatrical for the setting upon arrival 😀
My last tid bit of advice would be always just wear what you feel happy and comfortable in. If I am having a bad day, a bold lip colour and chic dress always cheer me up and sometimes those comfy slouchy sport luxe trousers and an oversized jumper are the smart and ONLY choice. Have fun with it, after all life is serious enough right?
Until next week Keya x
