Classics defy trends and are always stylish – like the classic white button down. You can wear it to work with a power suit, on the weekend for brunch with a pair of casual boyfriend jeans or a dinner date with fun accessories and great trousers or pencil skirt. I decided to style mine for the latter.
Toronto is in full swing for TIFF and I had the pleasure of screening “The Dallas Buyers Club”, where Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto where in attendance and answering viewer questions with the Canadian Director Jean-Marc Vallee. I had to make sure I was TIFF ready and wanted to wear the most amazing leopard print trousers from Banana Republic. How to style such dramatic pants without looking like I was trying too hard? Easy, a classic white button down with statement necklaces and a classic black blazer. I was on trend (animal prints are everywhere this season) and red carpet ready.
That’s how I like to style a classic for a night on the town.
White Button down, Brooks Brothers (old, but I like this and this). Trousers, Banana Republic (available here or here) . Blazer, Smythe (old, but loving this and this). Necklaces, J Crew (here), Divana (similar here). Clutch, Danier (old). Sunglasses, House of Harlow 1960 (similar here). Shoes, Jimmy Choo (here).
