The Art of Killing Poetry* | The Art of Dressing Down

Written by

You’ve got a pair of heels and a silk duster.  You’ve got a print tee and a pair of black slim trousers.

Excellent. You’ve got yourself an outfit.

Sometimes dressing up is much easier, you  take your nice, fancy pieces, add a dash of red lipstick, a pair of heels, and you’re good to go.

When it comes to dialing down, things can get a bit more challenging given that you probably still want to look put together.There is no reason why your dressier pieces can’t go double duty in casual outfits.

Pageant Dresses

A pair of heeled sandals otherwise intended to turn heads on a saturday night, gets the daytime shift with a fun print shirt and a pair of cotton trousers.

white formal dresses

A silk overcoat doesn’t need a special occasion to shine. Pair it with less glam textures such as soft cotton and leather to toughen it up.

It’s a new era.

Hail to our glam pieces.

Hail to a flexible wardrobe.

  3. I never go wrong with a pair of jeans (mostly skinny) and a print t-shirt. This outfit can be chic as well as causal. Nice post

  4. Nice outfit! The simplicity of it is what makes it so great! I’m now on the hunt for a silk kimono like this.

    A cute pair of heels can do wonders for an outfit. I love pairing them with a pair of skinny jeans.

  8. Cute outfit! I completely agree that a silk duster can accentuate an outfit and take up a couple thousand notches. I so need to get one! LOL

    “Dressing down” properly is definitely an art. Some people – like yourself – can pull it off and look like a million bucks. Great explanation on how to get that look. And great hair!

  10. I love flexible outfits like this that can easily go from day to night. Adding a red lipstick is one of my favourite ways of dressing up a look.
