Happy Friday everyone! I can’t get over how fast time passes – it’s incredible! Today I want to share another style combination for you. I love combining my day outfit, so that it can easily be transformed to a nights out event. It’s incredibly important for me to look chic during the day for business and then be able to easily pull-up the outfit for when I’m out; without having the time to majorly change. So I love taking a pair of shoes and a shirt with me to work if I know I’ll be out in the evening again. Of course, this outfit is not something I would wear with clients – it’s not thaaat professional, but it’s a good, easy and chic “casual” outfit for winter. What’s really important to me is to always have a few items that I like to call the Allrounders – those that I can wear both at day and night with easy combinations.
With the winter coming now – ok, it’s freezing autumn already – I love wearing a pair of comfortable black leather pants. They are subtle enough to wear at day and glam enough for night’s out at a bar or club. Obviously, the major accessories such as a brilliant watch and some earrings are a no-brainer. And mascara! I cannot live without my mascara from Chanel. I love getting ready in general, but often times I don’t have enough time to sit hours (just kidding!) in front of the mirror or I just cannot be bothered, and enjoy a day without makeup on. But I cannot live without my mascara – not even for that walk to the supermarket across the street.
This watch is actually a men’s watch – but hey: who says you can’t wear men’s fashion? I say you can! Actually, I already own two men’s watches, as I’m oftentimes into those larger, heavier watches. I love the contrast of a big watch to a females’ wrist. There’s just something about it – or is that only me, haha? In general, I believe one piece of jewelry can be make such a difference to the whole outfit. Take this watch, for example. On one hand it can be combined so easily with so many different styles. On the other hand, it already has such a presence that a) not many other accessories are needed and b) it almost is a reason to style the outfit a certain way. I also have some fine jewelry pieces, were I often have the feeling I want to style the outfit a little more femine – or in contrast: totally grunge!
I love how the below Allrounders can be easily worn during the day with a comfortable sweater (love that one – just bought it yesterday!) and a nice pair of biker boots and hat. Comes the sunset, come the heels. The great thing about leather pants is you can literally wear them with any kind of shoe – be it sneakers, heels, flats or boots: it seriously always works! And that H&M x Alexander Wang shirt (yes, in my collection already!): how cool is that? Now I only need those heels, clutch and watch. I can’t seem to get over these items!
Which is your favorite item – or combination?
