Semi-transparent frames are a huge hit, overtaking the bold color summer trend. We are seeing silver, blush, and ice blue hues – all adding a subtle edge to fashion forward outfits. This week we feature semi-transparent Derek Cardigan glasses in ‘Ice’. Since the black/white fashion trend has no signs of slowing down for the fall season, we used a monochrome palette and added in a digital print mini skirt.
The Core Outfit
We are still very much in love with the kimono-inspired pieces from Lanvin, and use a charcoal grey vest paired with a HELMUT Helmut Lang bra top to keep lines sleek and clean. Digital print skirts in vibrant colors are a current trend, but if you want to wear this look to work we suggest pairing it with a black/white print like this one. Weather dependent you can also add tights in dark purple, navy or black. Low-heeled shoes like this pair from Alexander Wang are a fresh alternative to high heels.
Our semi-transparent Derek Cardigan glasses works as a power-dressing item with its boxy style and silver sheen. This pair of frames shouts smart, intelligent, and fashionable without you uttering a word when you enter the meeting room.
We also like a splash of color, so we chose a teal leather shoulder bag from Coach; it’s the right size for work (fits your iPad mini, iPhone, makeup bag and wallet), and adds contrast to otherwise all-black outfits.
A light wash of gray eye shadow with black pencil eyeliner keeps this look smart and chic without crossing the line into the ‘too-much-makeup’ category.
