Evening suit

Never too early to think/invest in an evening suit. This one from & Other stories is soooo right!

&Other Stories Tailored Wool Blend Blazer black

Blazer: you will wear it to death with lots of things, dress it up, dress it down, and it will still look nice in 10 years time.

Here: Blazer

Top: perhaps you will get fed up with this one much sooner, but it’s terribly chic/sexy and such a contrast to the suit’s severe look… I love it!

Trousers: incredibly flattering, who doesn’t need a pair of those?!?

Here: Trousers

Anyway, the end of the year will come all too soon…



Festive dressing: Zara



This is going to be the last post on festive dressing. By no means the least important, in fact, as I said before, I don’t believe one should spend too much on this kind of clothing. Of course if it’s going to be something you intend to wear during the day as well or you think you are going to use it for many years to come, than, it is worth investing, otherwise, it isn’t. That’s where Zara comes in, inexpensive trendy clothing, which is going to look great for a “few times wear”.

Here are some pretty alternatives to plain black, I love the mixture of grey, off white and pink, they would be nice all worn together (the colours! not the clothes!!)

And here are plenty of cute black ones:

Finally the leather. Well, I know, I keep on showing leather for the evening… I do think it’s a real alternative to black classic fabric clothes though.

I know you are thinking that perhaps green leather trousers aren’t the best for evening, but, first of all, most places where one goes are quite dark, so you can’t tell they are green. Second, since they are real leather, they cost rather a lot, so, you might as well get a lot of use out of them, which means wearing them during the day too. Now, do you really want to go for the boring black for the day? Well, you might, but if you are looking for an alternative colour which goes with just about any colour, here we are!!

Sorry. Back to the Zara evening wear.

Here are some outfits:

And so on and on and on…. endless possibilities.

Have a lovely Christmas. E.


Festive dressing: Massimo Dutti

Today is Massimo Dutti’s turn. Classic, quality clothes and accessories. I am afraid a lot of black again, although this time, injected with a little red, pink and plum.



This gorgeous suit can be worn for the evening with high heels, a strappy camisole and an extravagant necklace. You can also wear it for the day with a t-shirt to make it trendy, with a shirt to make it elegant and classic and with a sweater to make it chic. You can also use the jacket and trousers separately.

Love this jumpsuit as well:

This dress is cute, at least it’s a colour other than black!

The next outfit is a mix of classic and unusual. Blouse, trousers and shoes  are simple and elegant, but, I would wear the necklace on the back and add this sheepskin sleeveless coat to make interesting…

If you prefer a little colour the above solution is for you.

A few more pairs of trousers to play with:
