Dressed up Fridays: An edgy LBD for work


Here’s how you switch up your everyday sheath dress for work: Take on J.W.Anderson’s crêpe dress fitted with cool silver-tone hardware that echoes a raw industrial undertone. The ruffled hemline gives it a feminine touch that we can’t resist.

While the obvious choice for this look would be a pair of tough leather booties, the weather might not permit it (unless you’re okay with sweaty feet 24/7). Go for this laser cut leather mules from Sebastian Milano to amp up the edge to your outfit.

Did you know that the tassel from Anya Hindmarch’s Georgiana clutch requires eight hours of handwork to make? While we appreciate the labour that goes behind this sleek clutch, we’re crushing more on the metallic-silver geometric pattern and luxe grained capra-leather. Better still, there’s a trio of card slots and zipped pocket for organising your belongings easily.

A sleek pair of sunnies is mandatory for running about town on a sunny afternoon. Bottega Veneta’s matte black metal sunglasses has an undeniably chic cat-eye silhouette that’s flattering on all face shapes. That signature intrecciato motif really is what dreams are made of.

A next-level accessory to your all-black smouldering look has got to be this one-of-a-kind Constellation Pearl Ear Cuff from Wanderlust and Co. The pearlescent baubles are an elegant addition that juxtaposes its rocker-cool sentiment.

We welcome colour when it’s in the form of a high-shine lip gloss, such as NARS Lip Gloss in Quito – a delectable strawberry-pink hue. Tip: Dab this to the centre of your top and bottom lips for an eye-catching, light-reflecting effect that makes your lips appear fuller.
