Casual to glam 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.
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.
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.
To dress a bit more casual, we suggest this rigid denim jacket from RE, 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.
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.
