Enjoy a little shopping with your girlfriends before meeting your date for dinner with clever dressing—take a tip from this outfit, which is transformed by a single change.
The first rule is to keep it relaxed but well cut. Alexa Chung’s darkest-indigo jeans topped with a white pin-stripe tux by Pallas Paris have cool class when teamed with a pristine white tee. A classic, premium design (this one is from Calvin Klein) is the perfect canvas for a simple but striking necklace—we like this sparkling piece by Kenzo at Cadenzza. Finish with a statement watch by Festina—you don’t want to be late for your date.
When it’s time to go to the restaurant, simply whip off the tee and button up the tux. Voilà! Then have some fun lavishing yourself with jewels: draw the eye with a glowing décolletage thanks to Swarovski’s bejeweled long necklace for L.K. Bennett(the collection will be available at L.K. Bennett’s stores from mid-October). Earrings from Escada at Cadenzza not only complement it perfectly, but the light-reflective Swarovski crystals will enhance a luminous complexion. Choose some of your favorite rings—ours are by Giles & Brother, Nina Ricci and Tory Burch, all at Cadenzza—then twist your hair up into a sleek bun. Pick up Inge Christopher’s gorgeous crystallized gold minaudière, and just before you make your entrance, don’t forget to dab on a delicious lip color. Stunning.
