As soon as summer hits, most of us are rediscover our motivation to go out, meet up with friends or simply have some after-work drinks. Since I usually get a real productivity boost towards the afternoon, I often leave work rather late to head to the next soiree or meet up with my friends. Consequently, I don't have a lot of time to think about my outfit for the evening. That’s why I like to change my casual day outfit to a more stylish one that works for the rest of the night.
# OUTFIT OF THE DAY
My accessories by Kapten & Son and my pants are both great allrounders, making them easy to style differently from day to night. In order to transform my casual day outfit into a rather elegant one for the night, I like to exchange my comfy espadrilles with a pair of equally comfortable black leather mules (praise the current trend of clunky heels). Instead of the plain white tee, I like to wear a semi-transparent lace blouse. The black bra is allowed to shine through in a nice little show of contrast. Finally, I like to add a dark bag and some red lipstick. Voilà, we just transformed an everyday look into an elegant outfit for either a drink out with a good friend or date night with Mr. Right.
# OUTFIT OF THE NIGHT
Where accessories such as watches and sunglasses are concerned (and yes, you do need sunglasses for the night as well, if only to look extra fly), thankfully Kapten & Son offers a broad range of accessories that are easy to combine with whatever outfit – whether it’s casual or elegant. I especially like the watches with the mesh straps to switch from a day to a night look. One of my favorite models is the Black Midnight Mesh with its all-black appearance because it is timeless and a high-quality product, making it the perfect pick if you are aiming for an elegant outfit. When it comes to Kapten & Son watches, I prefer the larger Campus over the smaller Campina since I feel that the latter looks too small on my wrist. Also, I am just a fan of bigger watches.
For my sunglasses, I also chose the black colorway. The Havana All Black is the ideal companion for a hot summer day and it doesn’t just protect your eyes from UV radiation but also helps to hide potentially weary eyes from the previous night. Beyond that, I also like the golden frame since it matches my jewelry, of which I wear a lot in warm golden colors.
