Dressed up Fridays: Wear the pants

This Friday, we’re all about comfort-dressing (in style, obviously) to keep our cool amidst the sweltering temperatures outdoor. So we’re putting away stuffy skirts and denim jeans for today to make room for palazzo pants—practically the best bottoms to sport if you’re wishing that trousers came with cooling vents.

Jonathan Anderson upgrades the regular off-shoulder white top with expert draping ruching. This crisp white cotton-poplin top is the perfect choice for a blazing hot Friday, without being overly casual or dressed-down.

How should we declare our love for palazzo pants? It’s comfortable, flattering, light, breathable, and the list goes on. Plus, styling it right can make you look like you belong in the French Riviera, hanging out in a swanky yacht. But we digress. This dancer-printed pair from Max Mara is kitschy and fun but not overly attention-seeking. Plus, it’s 100% silk so no more sweaty thighs when you’re popping out for lunch.

And if your Friday includes running errands and meeting clients outdoors, put away your regular aviators for this really cool pair from Dior. Reinterpreting a perennial classic is not easy, but the house does it effortlessly while recalling a key inspiration from the runway—stripes.

So the craze for geometric designs (be it in fashion/jewellery or even tattoos) isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. But we can’t help to admit that these “Alfred & Wilde” tetra earrings from London-based handcrafted jewellery label Wolf & Moon are pretty cool.

Johnny Coca’s magical touch continues after Céline as he currently helms Mulberry. This amazing Mulberry ‘Small Kite’ tote is sleek, practical and chic to boot. And that luxurious crocodile-effect embossed leather it comes in? Swoon.

One of our favourite colour combos has got to be navy and yellow. So these mustard-yellow patent leather sandals from Sergio Rossi fits the bill especially with its caged straps and wooden wedge heel—can you tell we can’t wait for summer to come already?
