There’s something to be said for the glamour of transformation. A seemingly plain sheath dress can instantly take you from your nine-to-five shift to a dinner date by simply layering delicate necklaces. Separately, it may seem plain; but altogether it can look very stylish.
But before you think of any of that, it starts with the key pieces to build your outfit on. This season, as you change your look throughout the day, take a few notes from Kultura on how you can fit this concept of accessorizing while adding a Filipiniana touch to upgrade an outfit.
LUNCH MEETINGS TO CLIENT DINNERS
Not everyone has the luxury of time to swing by their place for a quick outfit change in the middle of a busy day. If overtime calls for something dressier, changing accessories would be a simple and subtle way of upgrading your work look. Use your Kimona-inspired top as a blank canvas and add color to your wardrobe by swapping your earrings for chunky colorful stones. Complement it with a classy pearl bracelet and you're off to dinner.
CASUAL DAYS AT THE OFFICE TO DRINKS AFTER WORK
No one likes to lug around their day bag past six in the evening. If you’re heading for a few cocktails after a day at the office, leave the excess baggage and downsize your structured purse to a compact clutch and switch up your accessories. Gold doorknockers and a multi-strand cobalt bead necklace are one easy way of taking your office outfit from your desk to the bar.
AFTERNOON TEA TO DINNER AND DANCING
Day formal is tricky to pull off. If you lack accesssories, you'll be underdressed; overdo it and you'll have missed the mark. What you really need is the right mix of texture and color to distinguish that transition from morning to night. A fringed messenger is perfect for daytime events while a woven clutch in somber shades of black and white lend an elegant touch for evening affairs.
