I have slight fear of being the most dressed up girl in the room. I blame it on living in Paris for the past year, where I quickly learned that it’s not cool to make an effort (or at least appear to).
So whenever I need to spruce up a little mid-week I follow a pretty reliable formula: blue jeans (cut to expose some ankle), a slouchy top that says I’m relaxed yet presentable like this backless top (otherwise a tailored button up always works a treat) and slick heels that you can actually walk in. Keep accessories to a minimum and stick to the classics, like Henri Bendel’s black tote and mirrored aviators.
