The Ultimate Must-Have Item by White and Pink Peony

For this week colab I present you Emmanuelle! She has an amazing sense of style and I was really happy when she agreed to writing a post for my blog! He ultimate must-have item is the black dress.

Hi, Everydayfacts readers ! My name is Emmanuelle, a 23 year-old French blogger. I am your host on White and Pink Peony. Today, I’ll show you how to turn a day wear look into a night outfit.

Going from day to night can be tricky. Let’s start with an outfit you could wear at the office. As a base, I choose a black, close fitting dress. It is very simple : the fabric is comfortable, there is nothing superfluous. Yet it looks chic, with the below the knee lenght and the ¾ sleeves. A nice basic I got from Zara a year ago. That’s typically the classy dress, perfect to go to work.

I add a forest green perfecto from Zara to rock it a little bit more. It gives a modern finish, it can be a twist to the classical jacket or blazer. I pick a large shouder bag I bought at Mango, because when you are going to work you have to use this kind of bag to put folders or anything. A small clutch is pretty, but totally useless in this situation. For the footwear, let’s play chic and comfy with a pair of loafers, still from Zara. I just love those shoes. Proof that high heels are not the only way to look polished and professional ! Of course you can accessorize your outfit with jewels : I have a very fine bracelet from 5 Octobre and a ring from Di Giorgio.

As for the beauty look, well I’m not really into make-up and elaborated hairstyles. So I’d make a quick bun not to have my hair falling down before my eyes and just put on a bb cream and some mascara. Here, done !

So when your day at work is over and you have a party afterwards, what do you do ? Some years ago, I read the book « Style » by Lauren Conrad, and she was talking about this topic. If you don’t have the time to go back home to change yourself, the trick is to take some high heels from home and hide them under your desk, and always have some extra make-up in your bag (yep, a large one is useful, see 🙂 ? ). With my black dress, there is some cool stuff to do. Indeed, to turn my day look into a night look, I’m going to swap my loafers for those Zara high pointed heels. Very high, not easy to wear that all day long, so keep it for the night. This time, your favorite clutch or purse is appropriate : here I have an silvery vintage purse I can wear on the shoulder too. I like the form, and even if I’m not into shiny thing, I must say I literally fell in love with this item. It is perfect for the occasion. This bag is very visible, so I don’t want to use big accessories, it would be too much. I put on those camée earrings, and some fine silvery rings I got at Moa and Bershka. Talking about an occasion, let’s put some make-up on : your fundation must be well done, mascara is already on, so you can just add a red lipstick. Vibrant, pink, orange … choose your favorite one. Here I wear a very dark one from Kate Moss’ collection for Rimmel London. I let my hair down to change a bit. You can spray it with a Tigi product that will give them brightness.

And then you are ready to go to dinner or partying 🙂 If you’re cold, don’t hesitate to put on a classic coat. The longer it is, the chicer it looks in my opinion.
