THE DRESSES THAT WORK AROUND THE CLOCK

0 Posted by - October 24, 2014 - FASHION

It’s the return of the lady – yes, again. We’re talking prim but not too prim. Think flirty, floaty and draped dresses. As we roll into summer, I can’t help but look for the perfect dress that works from day to night. Add a clutch, metallic heels and voila! I can go from day to night and work to play. When it comes to frills, I usually flee but this season soft meets tough and this printed dress with its layered frilly detail is proof. While nothing beats a maxi, this one tops the rest as the beaded detail makes what could be a simple, elegant look that much more interesting thanks to the neckline.

FROM WORK TO PLAY

Who said a day dress won’t work for playtime too? This printed chiffon pretty took me from my meeting with the ELLE belles to after-work drinks. The metallic heels add a fun element to give it evening cool.

COCKTAIL HOUR

The maxi isn’t going anywhere this summer. Thank goodness, as I have a thing for maxidresses. Worn with flats, it’s easy, elegant and comfortable. Acessorise with a cocktail and an uninterrupted view of the beach if you can.

Just in case you’re after a great cocktail, here are a few of my fave cocktail spots:

Kitima

When? Girls’ night out

Bascule Whisky and Wine Bar at the Cape Grace

When? Date night

Orphanage Cocktail Emporium

When? If you have something to celebrate, or not. If you feel in need of a midnight snack, do order their truffle fries with aioli. They will change your life!

The Pot Luck Club

When: A special occasion. The views, the food, the vibe… 10 out of 10. Do make an effort and do wear heels.

Love the dresses? Well, you can find them in-store at Mango.
