Dressed up Fridays: Bringing girly back with overalls
Velvet and lace
Elevate your overalls game by donning this Topshop Unique Arnold cotton-velvet overalls instead of your usual full-fledged denim ones. Made from lustrous black cotton-velvet with tuxedo-inspired satin panels down the sides, this pair is fully lined and tailored in a slim fit for a flattering yet androgynous look.
A nod to the Victorian era, this Ryan Lo pussy-bow metallic lace shirt plays up beautifully with the velvet from the overalls, thanks to its sheer floral-lace that's woven with shimmering metallic threads, pussy-bow tie and buttoned cuffs.
Instead of a simple black clutch or tote to accessorize your outfit, go the extra mile with Anya Hindmarch's Crisp Packet clutch—an extraordinary piece of wearable art that offers a modern edge to your retro-slinging, velvet-and-lace get up.
While we're on the roll with playing up different textures and materials, slip into this pair of scalloped patent-trimmed leather pumps from Alexander McQueen instead of a plain black pair of heels. With a small concealed platform for a more comfortable lift, this pair will be a femininely chic addition to your outfit.
To complete your vintage/modern outfit, a subtle, pared down earring such as Stone's Charmante single earring delicately crafted from 18kt gold and set with three 0.11ct diamonds is the perfect accessory to complement your Friday outfit.
