The purpose of this article is to encourage you to wear your formalwear in more ways than one. Obviously this depends on the type of piece that you have.
The tailored fit of the blazer, with a deep neck has always been my favorite silhouette. It's extremely sexy, yet elegant striking the perfect balance. This is the perfect late night evening wear for a cocktail at a dark bar with ambience.
This next look is best for later in the evening, switching into to sheer to show some skin. I love a good sheer top for going out, but when it comes to dinner, I like to cover up. The blazer and floral pants perfectly balance out the sheer top and make it dinner appropriate.
This first look is my take on an early evening outfit, it transitions nicely from day to dinner. I paired a loose blouse with an A line floral skirt, sock boots and a blazer. To spice it up, I tied a black neckerchief around my neck to create an elevated, choker-like look. When it comes to evening wear, I think that chokers are super sexy, but can come across as childish. The perfect alternative for a more mature look is a thin scarf or neckerchief. Mine was a parting gift from DRESSHIRT, the fashion company that I used to intern for.
