The Birthday Supper
You’ve clicked "attending" on the Facebook event for your fashion-conscious BFF’s birthday dinner — now you have the ever-tricky task of deciding what to wear. Pair your trusty tunic with zingy, slim-fit trews and pointed chunky heels. Add a faux-fur coat and a pair of dramatic false lashes, and voilà: the perfect smart-casual mix when jeans and a nice top won’t cut it.
The Daytime Date
Tinder has been fruitful: You’ve secured a date for this Saturday. Midday gallery hopping calls for a slouchy top and skinny jeans. You want to look like you made little effort — "Oh, this is just something I threw on" — while parading your newly toned thighs (those January-gym visits have done wonders). Work that COS top with olive jeans, camo boots, and orange-red nails.
When you’re going large — and we mean sartorially and socially — don’t be afraid to show a little skin. A flash of leg beneath Zara’s snappy leather shorts offsets the tunic’s oversized fit nicely, making it perfect for hitting the club. The finishing touches? Vampy lipstick and chunky gold jewelry.
