Dressed up Fridays: Elevated workwear

Dressed up Fridays: Elevated workwear

Work hard for the money


Get from the office to the bar without having to change a thing. TGIF!

Casual Fridays has been extended through the week and as our work places get more and more lax with dress codes, we don't often get the opportunity to dress up. So as a response to the casual downward spiral our office attire has been on, we're baptising Fridays as dress-up day. It really is the perfect day to make extra effort on: moods are buoyant, you're likely to head out to a bar as soon as the clock strikes five and then onwards to a swanky restaurant to celebrate the end of the week. Here's something to help you transition seamlessly from boardroom to bar and beyond.

Double-breasted coated wool-blend blazer by MM6 by Maison Margiela
Why go the standard navy blazer route when you have the option of a double-breasted camel blazer with hefty notch lapels? Concealed fasteners in place of buttons lend to the sleek modernity of the look.

Banker striped poplin shirt by Balenciaga
The contrast collar, cuffs and placket lend a sense of formality to this shirt, but the razor sharp tailoring and ultra-modern proportions propel it into fashion future.

Twill-panelled herringbone wool-blend skirt by Sacai
Borrowing once again from the vocabulary of menswear, this herringbone pencil skirt is anything but ordinary. The split front is contrasted against a crisp pleated twill underlay: all the better to have fun in.

Boy.friend watch by Chanel
A woman requires a watch that while discreet, is also unabashedly feminine (not replete with flowers, butterflies and hot pink). This one's perfect.

Dora Malletage handbag by Louis Vuitton
The Dora is an amalgamation of two bags from Vuitton’s history—the Squire (1934) and the Marceau (1950). We think it’s the perfect blend to take you from day/night and work/play.

Sphere mono earring by Delfina Delettrez
 A little asymmetry never hurt anyone and a single earring in white gold, black and white diamonds and a pearl is a pretty great way to make a statement.

Suede and plexy pumps by Gianvito Rossi
There is a time and place for crazy shoes and the office between 9am and 5pm is not it. These gorgeous Gianvito Rossis have a classic silhouette but a mix of materials give it divine lift.
