We’ve all heard the phrase ‘expect the unexpected’ but how can you apply that to your wardrobe and dress for when you don’t know where the day will take you? Whether its a weekend without a plan or a date night surprise life doesn’t always come with a dress code so here are a few of my top tips for dressing for the unexpected.
- Studded Boots: I love a heel more than anyone but there is nothing worse than sore feet. When your day doesn’t have a time limit opt for ballet flats or a great boot to make sure that you can walk around the city all day and dance on its tables all night.
- Black: black makes even the most casual of pieces look dressier. An all black outfit is not only effortlessly chic but it also insures that you will never look out of place or underdressed.
- Leather Pants: I know this sounds crazy but hear me out; leather pants are not for most workplaces so be a little adventurous on your weekends and throw on a pair. They keep their shape better than denim so will look fresh all day and are incredibly comfortable.
- Tie up sweater: Unexpected dressing is all about looking comfy, sexy and cool all at the same time which is why a tie up sweater is the perfect thing to throw on because it is all three! Tie up sweaters will keep you warm throughout the day and as the evening progresses you can loosen the ties and pull it down over one shoulder for an effortless cocktail look. Low maintenance but high style it is a must have so I’ve picked out my favourites for you to shop here, here and here . Monday – Friday tuck it into cigarette leg dress pants for the office (its not just a one wear wonder!)
