As we celebrate our first anniversary, we thought it fitting to have a birthday outfit inspo this Friday


If we have to be honest, a birthday gown/skirt can be predictably boring (read: poufy gowns and tulle skirts are so yesteryear), so go against the grain by wearing a chic top paired with equally chic trousers. For starters, this Roland Mouret satin top has a languid silhouette that makes a statement without blending into the background.

Keep your overall silhouette tapered and let your top do the talking. This pair of Italian-made mid-rise wool gabardine trousers from Saint Laurent's 'Permanent Collection' is one classic must-have in your closet. Its zipped cuffs are a surprising element to your ensemble.

No outfit is complete without anything from Chanel, and in this case, these satin grosgrain black sandals from the maison's Paris in Rome 2015-16 collection are the perfect addition to your birthday party getup. A dead giveaway is that classy faux pearl lodge in between its heel—très chic.

We can never say no to anything green, especially when it's one of our Buro colours. Case in point, this Plexiglas box clutch from Dolce&Gabbana beautifully complements the navy and black tones in our look. How exquisite are those rainforest leaves motif and crystal-studded bugs (never thought we'd say it!)

With your top capturing all the attention, pile on hand/wrist accessories for added panache. This gold-tone brass cuff from Balenciaga is just enough bling to have upon your wrist without overkilling it.

A spritz of feminine fragrance that brings to joy to mind is what you need for a finishing touch. Cue J'Adore Eau de Toilette, Dior Beauty's one-of-a-kind fresh floral scent that has Essence of Blood Orange, Magnolia, Damascus Rose, and Neroli for an altogether sweet, floral, and citrusy fragrance.
