There’s one good thing in afternoon meeting: the sooner you finish the better it is, since you can leave office and start enjoying your after-work day. That’s way you need an appropriate look for both the occasions. What you need are simple but well-chosen pieces. Start with a pair of printed pants, teamed with a tailored sharp shape blazer (the leather panel will give the stylish impression, perfect both for the meeting and for the after-work). Everything will be lighten-up by the right accessories: shoes must be mid-heeled (a compromise to overcome the all day standing) and with printed pattern, so to give the right chic twist to the outfit. On the other hand, a big size city bag may be useful to carry all the essential necessaire: from iPad to make-up.
After a Saturday night clubbing and having fun, Sunday is all about chilling out and recharging the batteries. So, the best way to end the week, before starting a new one, is carving out some time for friends, maybe with late afternoon cocktail, chatting and relaxing. Of course, concerning the dress code, no strict rules: the must is a pair of comfortable boyfriend jeans and simple tank top, made more appealing with a leather jacket (you can never go wrong with it) and a flashy accessory to smooth the look.
Then comes the week-end. Finally. No meetings, agenda settings or whatever. It’s just time for oneself. And there’s nothing better than a sunny Fall Saturday, maybe for a relaxing shopping session or a tour at the best markets of the city. Aim at a colored look, like yellow, and deaden it with a style of black. Flat or heeled shoes, it doesn’t metter, just choose what can make you feel better. The perfect leisure accessory will be the hat, better straw, so to breath again a bit of summer.
It’s party time. That put in easier words, it’s time to show off the best evening dress. After all the chiffon maxi dresses and the mini summer tops, fall has come back again and there’s nothing better than the beginning of a season to flaunt the new ins of the wardrobe. The LBD remains a hit, but to make the seasonal pass less upsetting, it may be usefull palying with the details, like a one-sleeve studded dress, compleated just by a silver-tone clutch and a pair of plain leather sandal, just to make the right stress to the dress.
Friday is definetly a good day. Especially if you can skip work after lunch. Adieu tailleur&pumps, welcome easy chic outfits. For a cozy afternoon, be comfortable but without trivialize. That, explained, all tracksuits and similar are banned. Choose a total look made of denim (the ease incarnation), and give a twist to the look with a wise touch of print, like tartan that this fall is surfing the trends. With a pair of matched derby you’ll be ready for any appointment of the afternoon.
“Elegance is the balance between proportion, emotion, and surprise”
There’s one undisputed solution to survive a day in the office: playing with colors. It breaks the monotony and it can make your day. If you opt for the color block, blue is the answer: it’s sober, refined, impeccable, and may guide you, with no regret, from a daily meeting session until an after-work thing. Cobalt is the right choice, but give it a spot of light, like a touch of white that gives the look less rigour and even more elegance.
Stripes are everywhere in autumn. They’ve been the leitmotif of the past few seasons and we’ll see them in the streets, at parties, in the office. So, it’s better batten down the hatches, with one warning: too much of a good time. If you choose the blazer as your stripe look masterpiece, drawing your waist, then style it with a pair of jeans (for day) or leather pants (for cocktail) and a basic top.
Ok. The alarm clock’s ringing, you slept nothing and the meeting is in two hours. So, if you wanna taste every single drop of your necessary coffee, bet on your easiest and most classical look, but not seem trite. Choose clear wide leg trousers, maybe lace or silk: they’ll be the masterpiece of your outfit, so complement it with a simple black v neck sweater and give color with great high heel sandal and matched earrings. You’ll be refined and professional and you could enjoy your coffee without worries.
Is there something better than a sunset aperitif with friends or bf? Outside’s warm and work’s over. It is the perfect occasion to show off your strapless long dress: the ethereal soft silk will be given more character by matching a biker jacket just leaned on your shoulder (or a denim vest if it’s particularly hot), flat sandal and a jewelry clutch. Do not overcharge the look with too many accessories: just a bracelet and few rings.
