Please Don’t Stop the Music
Sultry details are the key to extending hot autumn days into endless sultry nights.
There’s something to be said for an outfit that works nine to five and beyond – one that’s serious enough for deal-making yet pretty enough for sunset drinks. “When it comes to perfecting the desk-to-dancefloor look, a simple slip dress is an absolute game changer,” says Lisa Aiken, Fashion Director at Net-a-porter. “The Row’s exclusive Guinevere dress is my go-to, it can be layered over a t-shirt and worn with flats during the day and when the sun goes down, remove the tee and add a heel by the likes of Gianvito Rossi.” It’s a fine balance, but by infusing classics with a little spice, you’ll find the perfect formula. Finally, keep accessories in the same tones as your dress but pile on some defining details, like opulent pearls or gilded studs. In other words, make sure they have plenty of personality, just like you.
