Casual Fridays: Blanc et Noir

Friday is probably the most anticipated day of the week. Many equate it to parties, road trips, dates, or movie nights. But to me it means comfort. Every Friday, I would almost always dress in jeans and shirt. It’s the last day of work so I guess I’m allowed to feel relaxed and unrestricted. For some working women though, office or client meetings often fall on a Friday. When that happens you don’t always have to stick to the usual corporate attire. Below are two laid-back outfit suggestions I have created just for you:

Black

Casual Days

 

Gone are days when the only allowed outfits for formal meetings are pencil skirts and blouses. Today, companies are no longer as stringent as before when it comes to dress code. As a result, many women have been experimenting with their looks and are more adventurous. One of this season’s hottest trends is the jumpsuit. It’s surprisingly comfortable to wear as it allows you to move freely without showing much skin. Pair it with a nice pair of black pointy shoes or strappy sandals with matching accessories and you’re now ready to close that business deal. Gold always complements black so I suggest wearing accessories with a hint of gold. ZALORA has a great collection of gold-colored jewelry that you can choose from.

White

White Balance

 

Like black, white never goes out of fashion. It immediately gives off that clean, cool vibe that’s why people love wearing this color during the summer. Lace cutouts are all the rage this season so you can try out this dress with lace detail. IMO white is a statement in itself so you don’t need to wear a lot of accessories. Gold jewelry with small, dainty pendants and designs are perfect. Complete your look with white or black pointy heels and you’re good to go. If you’re bold enough, you can also go for gladiator heels!

So which are you? Are you the jumpsuit or the dressy type? Spring-Summer 2015 has brought back some of our most beloved trends and styles. Feel free to check some of them here.

Spring/Summer Wishlist

Spring and summer is just a few days away and I have been mentally rearranging my closet. Lol. I still need a number of items though and below are the stuff I’m aiming to get before the spring-summer season begins.

Spring Clothing

1.Splendid Straps 7/10 Pants 2. Mickey Mouse Print Slim Jean Shirt 3. Sweet Cat Bowknot Pattern Sweater Black

These are not exactly summer-y but the denim suit and top reminds me of those in the country, toiling the soil while the sun’s high. And the cat sweater is perfect in the office. Our employers do not require us to wear suits and what not, as long as we look decent. It’s pretty cold in my office and having a cat sweater would be great.

Spring Shoes

4. Suede Round-Toe Wedge Pumps Red 5. Stud Details Lace-up Martin Boots

Pastels and muted colors are on trend this spring, and these coral suede pumps will make any outfit instantly girly, which is exactly my style. Although sometimes, I’d like to wear boots when I feel too lazy to dress up. I’ve worn out my two black booties and these lace-up boots would be a great alternative.

Spring Accessories

6. Rhinestone Elements Bracelet 7. Rhinestone Elements Bear Necklace 8. Pure Color Rivets Detail Tote Bag

I don’t wear accessories that much, but when I do, I always go for cute, sparkly ones such as the rhinestone bracelet and bear necklace above. They say a woman cannot have too many bags, and this studded pink tote bag would definitely make a good addition to my growing number of bags at home.
