Accessories are the first key to the vibeEyelet lace can go with structured, geometrical, edgy pieces, or with leather and other materials that will make it modern, while less avant-garde pieces will land you in romantic, feminine territory, or east-coast preppy, and so on.
Cut and colour are the second key to the vibeDarker colours are office-worthy, lighter ones are more suitable for garden parties, resort, and leisure in general.
Accordingly, I have come up with five different vibes:
- Paris: feminine and très chic, of course, for the office or anywhere dressed up.
- Rome: va-va-voom, with heels, ultra feminine and sexy.
- London: modern Twiggy.
- Saint Tropez: summery resort, with sandals.
- Newport: tennis party or picnic, with a cardigan.
