Dressed up Fridays: Reinterpreting classics

We all know that Friday, the one where you wanna just pull on a white shirt and boyfriend jeans because you’re too hammered from Thursday night’s shenanigans (already!), or you couldn’t care less about dressing up because, obviously, it’s the end of the week. But let’s keep the fashion ball rolling with good choices that you can take on from day time in the office to late night in the bar.

Go with a white shirt that isn’t your typical everyday shirt or one that you’ve borrowed from your beau. This piece from Rosie Assoulin features asymmetrical French cuffs that are slightly elongated for a quirky touch. And those wing tip collars? Way too cool for school.


Now for a pair of denim that looks lived-in enough without trying too hard: Rag & Bone‘s ‘The Dre’ boyfriend jeans. This flattering silhouette is slim-cut and distressed to look a tad bit more authentic for that extra finesse. 

All you need is a simple (or statement) necklace to give your ensemble a luxe look. Put on this interlock gold-plated brass necklace from Diane Von Furstenberg—an elegant yet delicate accessory for a polished vibe.

Shade your eyes with the latest pair of sunglasses from Chanel. This black and beige Plein Soleil draws inspiration from tie-dye motifs, revisiting the signature two-tone of the house. We’re loving the squarish acetate frames with slightly rounded edges – perfect for channeling your inner diva.

Now to perk your mood on a Friday morning, paste a smile on your face like the one on Anya Hindmarch’s ‘Smiley’ crossbody bag. There’s no better way to inject a dose of playfulness to your outfit than this tasseled kitschy crossbody bag.

The general rule of thumb to note with a pared down look as such for today? Always remember to have shoe game, and don’t resolve with your go-to sneakers that’s almost tattered (despite how comfortable it may be). This Camilla Elphick satin pumps feature a plethora of jungle cat motifs that makes us want to bestow it as our official Friday-night dancing shoes.
