Embroidery of two feisty parrots.
Let’s face it… dress codes can be quite daunting. Whether it’s a fancy dinner or a themed party, a specific dress code requires a lot of fore-thought and planning. As someone who dresses up for the weekend every day, adding the “smart” detail to my wardrobe has always been a challenge… A fun little challenge, to be fair! *insert smiling devil emoji here*
Last week I was invited to a gala dinner in Covent Garden. The dress code was – of course – smart casual. For this occasion, I paired checked suit trousers with a classic white shirt and a darker embroidered jumper. Since the embroidery appliqués are on trend this season – I got myself two feisty parrots from Zara. Aren’t they cute?! They definitely complete this overall look.
When in doubt, match neutral colours with bright embroidered appliqués. The bigger the better!
Styling tip: Make your shirt details stand out by pulling out cuffs and having collar over sweater. Bonus points for those who have cufflinks and a matching bangle bracelet. *thumbs ups*
