A Dash of Red - And an Alternative.

Today I'm showing you two ways to style the same basic outfit, from day to night  or night to day, from casual chic to chic casual. With a dash or red. And then an alternative.


Day to Night, Night to Day, Casual chic, Chic casual

This is a look I wore for a night out last Sunday. We headed into town for celebrating the birthday of a friend. And since it was easy to do, I thought I'd show you how quickly this kind of outfit can be transformed by only changing the shoes and the bag.


For actually going out I used the dressier and more glam red shoes. The location was a restaurant. Using the slip-ons and blue clutch instead, you create a casual vibe perfect for most daytime activities, but if you wanted you could also wear it to the movies or a low key dinner.

Likewise, the red ankle booties and bigger bag do work during day as well, depending on what you are dressing up for, because thanks to the sweater top and the, in my opinion, slightly casual cut of the pants (which at the same time are also chic thanks to details) the outfit doesn't ever vibe "overdressed".

Questo è un look che ho indossato Domenica scorsa per una serata fuori. Siamo andati in città per celebrare il compleanno di un nostro amico. Poiché era facile da fare, ho pensato di mostrarvi come questo outfit si possa trasformare velocemente, soltanto cambiando le scarpe e la borsa.

Per uscire ho indossato le scarpe rosse che sono più glam e chic. Il luogo era un ristorante. Usando le scarpe slip-on e la pochette blu metallico si può creare un outfit più casuale, perfetto per la maggior parte delle attività durante il giorno, ma volendo si può anche usarla per andare al cinema o per mangiare una pizza con gli amici.

Allo stesso modo anche i sandali rossi e la borsa più grande funzionano per un look da giorno, a seconda dell'occasione per la quale vi vestite, perché la felpa con stampa bianca e nera e, a mio parere, il taglio piuttosto casual dei pantaloni (che allo stesso tempo sono chic grazie ai dettagli) l'outfit non appare mai troppo vistoso.

Das hier ist ein look den ich letzten Sonntag zum Ausgehen anhatte. Wir waren anlaesslich des Geburtstages eines Freundes Abends Essen. Und weil es einfach zu realisieren war, dachte ich, ich zeig' Euch mal wie schnell man dieses Outfit veraendert in dem man nur Schuhe und Tasche austauscht.

Abends hatte ich die etwas glamouroeseren roten Stiefeletten an. Tatort: Ein Restaurant. Mit den Slip-ons und der metallicblauen Clutch hingegen kreiert man dann ganz schnell einen etwas legereren Look, der gut zu den meissten Tagesaktivitaeten passt. Ein Outfit, das man meiner Meinung nach aber auch sehr gut anziehen kann um ins Kino oder eine Pizza essen zu gehen.

Irgendwie finde ich aber, dass man auch die andere Version gut tagsueber tragen kann, je nachdem was man geplant hat, dank dem Sweater und dem Schnitt der Hose, den ich doch sehr sportlich finde (aber eben auch schick, dank einiger Details). Keine der beiden Versionen schreit "overdressed".

By the way: Culottes aren't going anywhere, any time soon. Or maybe I should say, they'll be back. Definitely.
-
Tra altro, Culottes non vanno da nessun parte. O forse dovrei dire, loro tornano. Sicuramente.
-
Und uebrigens, Culottes (Hosenroecke) gehen in erst mal nirgendwo hin. Oder vielleicht sollte ich sagen, sie kommen wieder. Sicherlich.
