Casual to glam in no time

Casual to glam in no time

Have a hot date or dinner with friends after work? No need to pack an entire new outfit for tonight. Here’s a few fashion items that will help you take your look from the office to the bar in no time.

A BIT OF BLING
Of course, no evening look is complete without something sparkly: watches, necklaces, bracelets, earrings or rings. A bit of bling can take an outfit all the way in no time.

These handcrafted organic hoops from Kirsten Goss called room service is too gorgeous not to like, R1 790. Available in sterling silver or 18ct yellow gold or 18ct rose gold vermeil. Details: www.kirstengoss.com.

Don’t even get us started on this beautiful necklace (9649) from Ayala Bar Jewellery. It’s made from silver-plated brass and metal alloys, Swarovski crystals, glass beads, ceramic stones and crystal rhinestones, R3 990. Details: www.ayalabar.co.za.

For something a bit more subtle, yet striking, we’d go for this beautiful thin 9ct yellow gold ring with yellow gold wire wrapped around the centre, R1 800. Details: www.dearrae.co.za.

BAGS, BAGS AND MORE BAGS!
Who says bags can’t be considered jewellery? Clutches, tote bags, shoulder bags or backpacks, take your pick – there is something for every taste and occasion. Invest in a few statement bags, be it textured or glamified, and simply add to your event wardrobe to take it from daywear to evening wear in seconds.

 

We’re crushing on this Club Riviera envelope leather bag from Folli Follie. Wear it as a shoulder bag or cross body bag, R3 190. Details: www.follifolliesa.co.za.

If it’s detail that you want, then you simply have to get your hands on this black Everly tote bag from Pierre Cardin, R579. Details: www.spree.co.za.

It doesn’t get prettier than this silver Marian floral detail clutch bag from Miss Black, R499. Details: www.spree.co.za.

FEND OFF THE COLD WITH A JACKET
You might already know this, but adding a jacket to your look can instantly change the feel from day to night. Blazers, bomber jackets, knitwear, denim or leather – this is something you’d want to throw on for drinks after work.

Sexy! We are absolutely in love with this Esther leather biker jacket from Forever New, R3 999. Details: www.forevernew.co.za.

To dress a bit more casual, we suggest this rigid denim jacket from RE, R699. Details: www.woolworths.co.za.

We also wouldn’t mind a navy classic blazer like this one from David Jones, R699. Details: www.woolworths.co.za.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SHOES
Whether you prefer sky-high heels, more demure boots or comfy flats, shoes are an easy way to take an outfit from day to night. For night time we suggest wearing something with bling or a pop of colour.

We can’t stop gushing about these Moto heels from Steve Madden. The edgy-glam embellishments will add sparkle to any outfit while the crisscrossed straps and sandal stiletto heels will leave people staring, R1 899. Details: www.stevemadden.co.za.

Not quite as flashy? Then you’ll love these black Samantha slingback heels from SOA. The peep toe detail makes it perfect for evening wear, R799. Details: www.spree.co.za.

For something maybe a bit more comfortable, this beautiful dark navy Hilary suede flats from Trenery will do the trick, R1 198.99. Details: www.woolworths.co.za.
