Eveningwear has to my ultimate favourite type of clothing to wear and style into an outfit. I love that you can play with different texture’s, colours, go sheer and always add some form of sparkle. It’s just so much more playful and I always feel so much more special when I’ve made a real effort with my outfit in the evening. So, as I went out for a few celebratory drinks with some of the lovelies at work, over the weekend, I thought I would share my outfit of the night. It’s one of my favourite’s and the perfect put together, but also still relaxed look.
So, first let’s talk about a key part of this look, and it really starts with the underwear. It’s essential with these gorgeous white cropped trousers, from New Look, that you’re extra careful about the underwear you wear. They can be pretty see-through and so a good pair of nude pants is essential, or even a nude thong. Also, as this high necked, purple top which is also from New Look, is super sheer, you have two options. For the day time, I always just pop a black cami underneath and this protects all your dignity and also looks presentable for the day time. However, in the evening I love to pair it with a black Bralette from Victoria Secret underneath. It just adds a bit of playfulness to the outfit and makes it more evening appropriate.
The two key items of the outfit themselves, the top and the trousers, are both favourites from my wardrobe. I not only love the colour of this top and how you can really get away with wearing it all year round, it also looks great on my skin tone and really compliments gold eye makeup and rose gold jewellery. It also has a really lovely fit, and even though it’s got a high neck, if you wear it sheer, then it’s still very feminine and a bit sexy as well. As the trousers really are a staple in my wardrobe, and can be worn both day and night. They look good with so many different items and I love how they really pull in my waist and emphasise my long legs, especially if I wear them with heels.
To pull the look together, I went for my new grey suede, cropped biker jacket, which is also a purchase from good old New Look. I love how this not only kept me warm during the evening, but it also adds a different texture and colour to the outfit. The cut of the jacket also looks great with these trousers, as it just finishes when the trousers are pulling in at my waist, so it really just compliments the outfit and looks super classy. Also, I just paired my favourite pair of nude heels with the outfit, as not only are they the most comfortable pair of heels I own, they also look amazing on and really compliment so many outfits. They also make sure I look elegant but not too tall, as I’m already 5ft 11 in flats. The silver clutch just added a bit of sparkle to the outfit and also created a home for the bare essentials I needed for the night; my money, phone, ID, Cards and of course my eye-lash glue.
