It’s Friday night and it’s been a long old week. What better way to start the weekend than with cocktails with friends? We usually head to a bar that does 2-for-1 deals, order plenty of mojitos and have a good old gossip. But what to wear? It’s hardly a night out, and sometimes you just want to feel glamorous at the end of a hard week. I always go for something I can wear to work as well, as often we go straight from the office and there’s no time to change.
In this in-between period that crosses over from Winter to Spring, the highstreet is all about monochrome (get inspired by the Warehouse and Oasis collections), but for me I like to add bright sparks of colour to cheer myself up. I added this bright red blazer for the colour, and accessorized around it – right down to the lipstick! Choose gold or silver jewellery, and add lots of bracelets and rings.
